Comfort is the enemy

Comfort is the enemy
-J Cole

When Cole was talking about how he didn’t become a professional basketball player he said that it was because he wasn’t putting in the work,

He said he was playing ball every day, but he wasn’t working with coaches and practicing drills, he was pretending to do something…

Then when his friends pointed out that he was doing the same thing with his rap career

He was like oh shit and it woke him up that he was just working in his comfort zone

So he would write a song or a verse and make a beat before he went to the studio.
He would do 7 minute drills where for 7 minutes he would write.

Comfort is the enemy, comfort cost him his basketball career and almost cost him his rap one too

Do the work
Every day

The day that changes your life

The one day you get lazy could be the one day that changes your life

The day you ease off the gas could be the day that you close that deal, that your boss recognises your hard work or some of your work goes viral

On the other hand, the day you have a lazy one, could be the day you realise that what your doing isn’t working for you, or you have a random life changing idea whilst lounging in bed.

There is no right or wrong in life, different things have different effects

The day you do this could be the day that

Or the day you that then this could happen

If you miss an opportunity, there will be others, even taking an opportunity you could miss out on others

What you do or dont will always reveal another path

The day you do or dont do anything could be the day that changes your life

Old and New Can’t Live Together.

Old and New Can’t Live Together.

Ok this isn’t entirely true, if you go to Rome you’ll see ancient history blended into modern-day living and it makes one beautiful city (I think I’ve never been) Old and new clearly can live together there.

However…

When it comes to me and you

Old cannot live with the New.

The old way of doing things and a new way of thinking that is.

You want to achieve that big goal. That requires a new way of thinking.

But thinking alone can’t change anything…

So you have to change the way you do things too,

You can’t want to lose weight, but still, do the things that made you gain the weight in the first place.

You can’t get rich by doing the stuff that got you broke…

Do you want change?

The old way has to be evicted.

Being busy is a form of laziness

Being busy is a form of laziness – lazy thinking and indiscriminate action. – Tim Ferriss

Being busy is not the point.

Being busy is a fast way to hit fifty and wonder where your life went.

We say that we’re busy to try and impress ourselves and others that we’re some sort of hardcore workaholic that gets shit done.

The reality, What we get done is shit. Continue reading “Being busy is a form of laziness”
