It all falls into place

It all falls into place

If you do the work

They say everything works out for a reason, it was meant to be

But things only fall into place if you do the work,

Like you won’t get that job if you don’t apply for it, turn up for the interview…

You won’t get the job if you don’t do the qualification

You want get the date if you dont ask the person out…

The work needs to be done

If you want things to fall into place

Sign a contract with yourself

Sign a contract with yourself

You punch in at your work, do your hours, take your breaks when scheduled, do what the contract requires, then leave

Yet our ideas, whether that’s going to the gym or reading or saving

We just free ball it

We go if we feel like it, or put money into our savings if we remember

What if you wrote a contract out and signed it

Stating all the requirements of what you set out to do

Like every month I will save 10-20% of my wage

Or i will go to the gym 3x per week at this time

It works, my gym requires that you book in before going now,

Which is good because once your booked in you have to show up because if you don’t someone else could have had that space

Sign a contract
And do what you said you would

Overcoming Resistance

“The amateur believes he must first overcome his fear; then he can do his work. The professional knows that fear can never be overcome.”

The movies that we know and love would be incredibly short and our beloved heroes would just be Hobbits and Farmers.

Your Avatar

“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens.” -C.G. Jung

Before you start your quest you need your avatar, This is not a video game where you can create your perfect version of you, Select your strength and how you look, bash a few buttons and master a skill…

You want to level up in real life, You need to look inward, You need to know who you are first, in order to bridge the gap and become who you want to be…

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
