Perfection is an Anchor

Perfection is an Anchor

It weighs you down and stops you from moving forward.

When this is perfect I can do this
I can put it onto market
I can make some money or generate leads

Stop those thoughts because they are stopping you from progressing and moving forward

Perfection is the friend that looks like they’re helping but really they’re using you to stay afloat whilst your drowning

Perfection will sink you.

Good is great if the world sees it
Good can be improved upon
But the world will never see perfection

So do the work
But make sure you show it to the world

Off and on again…

When your always on and off

The on is going to be 10x harder than the off

Stopping and starting is a killer.

The more you stop the harder it is to start again and the harder it is to keep going and get momentum.

In terms of exercise the more you stop the harder it is to find motivation to get started again. Then you get mucles soreness and want to stop again. Where as if you just pushed through and kept going you keep gaining momentum.

In relationships if your on and off the on is never going to be the same and you have more chances of breaking up again.

In business if you only market when you need to its going to be a lot harder to get sales than if you marketed consistently.

Basically when your on and off the on gets 10x harder and quitting or being off gets 10x easier so keep going because the off is not worth it

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.

Plan all the way to the end

“Let all your efforts be directed to something, let it keep that end in view. It’s not activity that disturbs people, but false conceptions of things that drive them mad.” -Seneca, On Tranquility of Mind, 12.5

You’re suited up ready for action, ready to level up. You can see your target it’s locked in. You charge towards it, Boom It was an ambush and now there is no way out.

When motivation is high, when we’re ready to level up and our emotions are high, we need to steady ourselves, go back to the war room and check the battle plan.

You can only be who you already are

You can only be who you already are

– Steven Pressfield

I love this philosophy it goes against the you can be whatever you want to be positive thinking jumbo that goes around today

If you want to be a singer and you cannot sing then you are not going to become a singer no matter how much you believe you can be whatever

So who are you already

That is the chief task at hand

We don’t know until we know

Sometimes we get whispers in our ear and we ignore them

Other times we stumble on to it through a wide variety of paths

But at heart deep down we are all explorers so even if you don’t find who you are

Get outside and explore
