The course of the future

Even The Smallest Person Can Change The Course Of The Future

Galadriel (LOTR)

The smallest goal
The smallest task
The smallest action

The smallest of anything can change the course of the future, it doesn’t have to be the future that affects the whole world but they can affect yours.

Good or bad that depends on your actions and choices the smallest bad choices made repeatedly will change your future in a big way the same with the smallest good

It all comes down to the actions you make daily.

By Nature men are nearly alike

By Nature men are nearly alike
By practice they get wide apart
– Confucius

We all have base level instincts and emotions, anger, sadness, happiness etc

This is where we are all alike, but through practice or not is where we set ourselves apart

One person can have desires for material things and always gives in to temptation to buy them,

Where as the next practices frugality and resists the urge to buy them

One person gets in a rage about the slightest upset, the next practices hardship and readys its mind for them to arise.

It’s also the same way your friends grow apart from you, they practice something you don’t and eventually your interests dont align anymore…

We are all alike
Until we practice

Creativity Break

Creativity break

Ok creativity does not take a break, it jumps at you from nowhere, sometimes in the most random times

Like in the shower or on a long road trip, you know when there is absolutely nothing you can do about it

So why the creativity break

You know, your sat at your desk, your boss or your client is down your neck or your firing blanks in the ideas meetings

You stare at a blank screen or paper, forcing your brain to come up with something

But it just relays the fact you got nothing.

So what do you do?
Get away from your desk and do anything other than think about the problem

Take a walk, exercise, take a weekend away and just dont think about the problem

But whatever you do, take a notepad and be ready to capture the ideas as they come

Because they will If you take a break from trying to find them

Get yourself some experience now

All a writer really has is experience
If you intend to write, start to get yourself some experience now

-Michael Baldwin

I get asked how I come up with content every day, I read a lot and I’m human so I have experiences

Experience, no matter what craft your in, helps you become better, even if the experience isn’t related

Experience can always be translated to something else and the lessons extracted

Whatever your craft, get some life experience

Is this what you want to be known for?

You will be known for what you do

So you better start doing what you want to be known for

-Todd Henry

What you do and what you want to do are completely different things a topic we’ve discussed plenty of times on the blog

Several times in my life I’ve wanted to be known for this and that

A wonderful fairytale in my head

The realty though actually doing those things was too much effort

They required work

My intention for this blog was to wait until I was successful (whatever that means)

In the end, we don’t actually know when the end will be it could be today or tomorrow

Do you want to be known as that person who said they were going to all that stuff

But in the end just stuck to the same daily routine without doing anything more than talking or dreaming

No?

Times ticking let’s make a change
