They say the week start on Monday
But the strong start on Sunday
I fell into the habit of just letting my weeks start at default and just go with the flow, you know see what happens…
Not much really, Apart from responding to events as and when they happen.
The strong start on Sunday, meaning planning your week before it starts and reviewing the previous week to see what progress you did or did not make…
(Although I don’t think that’s what Ye meant)
Garret J White calls this the general’s tent, Planning your battles before you go to war.
War on yourself that is.
Start on Sunday
Review your week
Plan your week
Kill your week
“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.

Everyone gets tired, Even your hopes
Doing the work is tiring.
It does not always go to plan…
We may fail and we may fall,
We will definitely experience tiredness and fatigue…
But if we have started the work then no matter how tired we become, We will have made progress…
But if all your doing is sitting around, Hoping for change, Then eventually you are going to give up hope, and you will have made no progress and watched time just pass by…
You’re going to get tired no matter what, So you might as well become tired doing something.
The importance of foundations.
When the tide is high, what lays upon the surface is hidden,
Sharks, crabs, rocks, bones… are all hidden
When the tide goes out these are all exposed.
Life is like the tide and it’s why we need solid foundations.
When the tide is in and everything is running smoothly we cant see the rocks underneath us.
We have money, the good times are rolling…
But what happens when that tide goes out.
How is your relationship going to manage crashing on the rocks, how is your buisness going survive…
If you have solid foundations, you know what lies beneath the surface, you have focused on them even when they weren’t exposed.
So when the tide finally did go out, life carried on smoothly.
Unfortunately for most of us, when things are good, we hope they will last forever.
But the tide washes them away.
But life is pretty great in that every day we get to rebuild
So if you have lost it all, you can rebuild
If you are ignoring the rocks, you can start to have a contingency plan in place in order to prepare for the day things go south
Foundations are important.
Nothing would stand without them
