How many time have you put this off?
Procrastination the curse that just keeps on taking.
Time and time again we are granted with opportunities to accomplish tasks yet we keep giving those opportunities away.
Time and time again and ironically we end up with less and less time…
I started a course a year ago and it expires today,
Guess who’s spending their evening trying to complete it… Me.
Even after a year of lockdowns and countless lazy days…
Think of your many years of procrastination; how the gods have repeatedly granted you further periods of grace, of which you have taken no advantage. It is time now to realise the nature of the universe to which you belong, and of that controlling Power whose offspring you are; and to understand that your time has a limit set to it. Use it, then, to advance your enlightenment; or it will be gone, and never in your power again
– Marcus Aurelius
When one chooses their own path, its only natural they’ll get lost at times
-The courage to be disliked
When following a path chosen for you, say the family buisness or the same career path as your parents it’s easy to know what to do and wear to go
You just ask them for advice
But when you follow your own path, well that road map has not been laid out for you,
Your going to make mistakes and wrong turns, your going to stumble and fall, but that’s the beauty of choosing your own path
The mistakes are lessons that you get from living not just simply following,
Go and get lost, that’s where you’ll find life
Do what is right, not what is easy
– paths of meaning
There are many times I’ve chosen to do the easy thing
Even though my gut and my heart new it wasn’t right
I took the easy way and it kind of felt like a piece of me died
There are other times when I have down what’s right but it wasn’t easy, it was in the moment wishing I had done the easy thing but afterwards I was glad I did the right thing.
There are many times we will be tested on these choices and sometimes we will get it wrong, and we will know because we will be able to feel It in our stomachs
Sometimes we cant rectify the situation other times we can
But in any moment ask yourself
‘is this the right thing’
You may be able to catch yourself before you make a mistake
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.
Do you have a time machine?
So that you can go back in time and change shit.. No So why dwell on it in the present.
(Not a direct quote) But a quote from Kevin Harts the decision.
We can’t go back and change the stuff we have done or haven’t.
So all we can do is accept it, Its happened, we can’t change it, but we can adapt to it in the present.
We can move forward and deal with whatever happened, But not if we cannot accept it.
So let’s stop the feeling sorry for ourselves and make some forward progress
