Level Down, So you can level up

Level Down, So you can level up

I know I wrote this post a few weeks back (Where in your world do you need to level up)

And this post is more the opposite, Where do you need to level down.

Because we all want to accomplish so much, So we take on too much and accomplish nothing.

We try to help others, Try and do five things at once and we become overwhelmed and drained, then do nothing.

Somewhere in your world, you need to Cut back on, So you can level up elsewhere, where it will make a difference to your life, SO you can make a difference in other lives as well.

You can’t do everything and in trying you’ll do nothing.

Crowns play tricks on the heads they lie upon

‘Crowns do queer things to the heads beneath them’

Tyrion Lannister (GOT)

Just that you do the right thing. The rest doesn’t matter. Cold or warm. Tired or well-rested. Despised or honored

Power can do some strange things as Marcus Aurelius had to remind himself to do the right thing, one can only imagine what power lay at his hands and the temptation it would have come with it.

Modern day we have world leaders despite growing evidence that we do not have a massive killer disease at hand still locking down their citizens

Whether they think they’re doing the right thing or their is something bigger at play I dont know.

(Probably the latter)

What they do is out of our control, we can’t control decisions they make,

But control how we act and react to them.

We can do the right thing

We can protest peacefully, whilst police use their force.

We can read actual science and not the news papers, to educate ourselves and others on what’s actually happening.

Or if you feel it’s the right thing you can stay inside.

Whatever you do, do what you think is the right thing

Where to find motivation

Where to find motivation

You won’t find it on a map or in a treasure chest

You won’t find it in the woods

Or over a rainbow

It won’t come to you either

Motivation you find in doing what you don’t have the motivation to start.

Say its going to the gym

You might not be motivated to go

But once your there and the more you keep going the more motivated you’ll find yourself.

Having good intentions

Having Good intentions

But bad effort

Anyone can have the best intentions,

The best intention to get in shape before a holiday, revise for a test, read a book, well there’s loads of examples.

Whenever I go abroad I always said I would learn the language or some of it at least,

I’ve bought audiobooks, physical books all with the best of intentions of learning it, but the effort didn’t match the intention.

It’s like having the best intentions to get in shape you buy loads of training gear, buy a ‘health magazine’, loads of healthy food,

Then grab a takeout and leave the above to collect dust.

To make traction

Our efforts need to be more than our intentions.

The wrong decision

The wrong decision is still a decision

Choosing a hotel and finding its not quite what you expected can ruin your trip

The same with choosing a restaurant or anything really

There’s so many hotels, restaurants, photos, menus and reviews to go through it can be overwhelming

The fact you managed to make a decision in the first place is a good thing

But just because something didn’t quite meet your expectations and letting it ruin your trip, meal whatever

Is also a decision.

We’re going to make some bad calls in life and that’s ok because its experience

And making a bad call is better than making no call

But don’t let it ruin the overall

Because there is so much that comes after the decision
