Work vs Play

Work vs Play

We all should know that we need to put in some work to achieve

or receive the things we want and need in our lives.

This statement immediately gets us to the heart of the problem.

We do not want to work, we want the results of our efforts.

 

In this way work will always be less appealing than play.

It is natural to think this way.

If there is a choice between work and play, it is obvious which

of the two would be more attractive to the average person.

 work vs play

What then makes some of us choose to work diligently,

above and beyond what is necessary.

The thing that drive us, true for everyone who does it,

are the results that are envisioned at the end of the work process.

 

Work vs Play - How can work win?

Make no mistake, I am not only speaking of business.

As a matter of fact I am not even speaking about life.

Many religions focus on rewards are only to be had after death.

These thoughts are used to fuel desired behavior.

 

Children learn to save the money they spend every day,

only when they obtain a larger goal in mind.

The promise of having a larger payout at some time in the future

is what drives us all to forgo immediate pleasure for possible discomfort.

work vs play

This mentality is only possible if thoughts of the future are is embraced and encouraged.

Many people who have had promises broken or expectations crushed have condemned

themselves to living in the moment for pleasure because of the uncertain future.

If there is no plan for the future, hard work makes no sense

and obtaining larger goals is effectively out of reach.

Comfortable Hell

0 Comments

A Comfortable Hell is hard to leave

I know the phrase is odd to say the least.

Hell can never be comfortable by definition right?

Yet some are content to stay in the situation that is unacceptable,

so often it has become normal to hear complaints.

 

This is a general idea that applies to a job, relationship or any other

ongoing situation that is the source of mental or physical discomfort.

I am absolutely certain that we can all think of at least one friend that

constantly complains about something but makes no effort to change it.

 

The fact is that some would much rather stay in a miserable,

unpleasant situation rather than face the unknown.

They create their own comfortable hell because

they are not willing to take action to change it.

 

A Comfortable Hell - Get out of it!

Is your job making you sick?

Are you sick of you spouse?

What is your motivation to stay?

Is there any reason to stay besides avoiding the discomfort of the unknown

situation that awaits when you step away from what you know?

 

We need the courage to face the unknown.

We are not conditioned for it.

We are taught to take the safe route rather than cut our own path.

 

Many instances, excuses are made for the lack of action,

most commonly involving availability of funds.

The cost of staying or leaving a bad situation is not monetary,

but peace of mind or lack thereof.

 

There is no reason to stay in a situation that is slowly killing you

either emotionally, financially or even physically.

Take a step toward the happiness by stepping out of your comfort zone.

I will not stay in my comfort zone all my life

because that would mean I did not move forward.

 

Look at the possibilities available to you and take a leap of faith.

Listen to your parents

This statement is usually taken to mean hear your parents advice.

I suggest you take it a step further and listen to all their words.

Listen to what they complain about and what makes them happy.

If you see a difference in what they say and what they do..............

 

I know that the mistakes we make are learning tools.

I also know that you can learn from the mistakes of others.

Somehow I feel that the advise I heed should come from someone

who has achieved the results I want.

 

Unfortunately for many of us,

our parents do not live a life that we would want for ourselves.

Neither would they like the same for us.

 

Listen to your parents but think for yourself!

 

 

The fact is that things are always changing.

The truths that were undeniable when you parents were growing up

are not necessarily still the ruling theory.

 

A prime example of change would be communications through internet.

Working from home is a concept that was not even available.

Aiming for a 40 hour work week job was sound advice before automation

and global communications became a driving force of commerce.

 

Listen to your parents but live your own life

Make your own mistakes!

While it is a good practice to learn from the mistakes of others,

the advice given is not always rooted in personal experience.

Perceptions are often given a sage advice with no foundation.

 

I know it sounds like I am just rebelling against all parents in a very general

and unhealthy way, but it is necessary for a changing world.

Conforming to old ideas is not the path to the future and you will most definitely

resent your parent if you do not follow your own path.

 

In the end you must heed their advice if it is given with their own experience

as the driving force behind their fears for your well being.

On the other hand if it is based solely in fear,

you must find the courage to make you own path.

The Importance of Health

The Importance of Health

Day to day health is very important if you are to maintain

a day to day consistency toward your goals.

Chronic illnesses do not only have an effect on our life expectancy,

but on our finances and prosperity as well.

 

Maybe it is too specific to allude to chronic illnesses.

Our well being is int interrupted by any physical discomfort,

long before it has the label or consistency of illness.

We need to make sure we feel good daily.

 

We have all felt that lethargic feeling that stands as a barrier

to accomplishing what you had planned.

Unfortunately it all boils down to the two most cumbersome issues

that we all must face........ diet and exercise.

 

The Importance of Health - Diet

Absolutely nobody who knows me would suggest following my dietary habits.

I make no claim to be particularly strict in either seeking out

healthy foods or staying away from perceived unhealthy foods.

What I do not dispute is that the foods we eat have a direct effect on health.

Importance of Health

Instead of strictly following a diet made by someone who doesn't know you,

I say you should monitor what your food choices do personally.

This means instead of making generalized statement you will have

specific reactions to specific food choices to guide you.

 

Seek foods that give energy and regularize your bodily functions.

Using this observation method you can find out what you should

stay away from before the doctor has to tell you.

Eating in excess should always be avoided.

 

The Importance of Health - Exercise

I am an advocate for a form of work that demands that I spend time

sitting at a computer rather than engaging in regular movement.

It still does not escape me how important exercise is.

Despite what the media will have you believe,

diet cannot fix all of your health problems alone.

the Importance of health

I am an asthmatic.

No form of exercise is particularly enjoyable for me besides swimming.

(I like water)

I cannot maintain reasonable lung function without a workout of some sort.

I will begin to experience breathing problems within two weeks.

 

I have found the situation that motivates me to maintain

a reasonable level of physical activity.

You should try to be motivated to do this for your own reasons

before a doctor eventually threatens you with death.

If you want prosperity you should

want the health to enjoy it.

 

 

Make my team your team while chasing your own personal goals.

The importance of health can not be understated.

Share Knowledge

Share Knowledge to grow

I encounter hoarders of information on a daily basis

and I am constantly baffled by the mindset that drives them.

It seems so ridiculous to me that in this time we live,

where information is easily found with any search engine.

 Share Knowledge

Sharing the knowledge you have in conversation will invariably

lead to others sharing their knowledge with you.

Treating information as a freely given resource allows the collaboration

and teamwork needed to tackle larger obstacles.

 

Learning is not limited to school and teaching is not limited

to those given the authority to do so.

Ensure that you learn something new at every opportunity.

Consistently learning new things will help you gain the skills

that you need to achieve your goals.

 

Share Knowledge to prosper

Someone may think that ensuring they alone have access to information

they will ensure their own importance in business.

Somehow they value the thought of being irreplaceable.

You should only want to be irreplaceable in a position that you never want to leave.

Share Knowledge

Either way, the hoarding of knowledge does not nurture

the good will of the people around you.

Instead it will ensure that helpful information is not provided.

In this way you can make enemies among your teammates.

 

If you share your knowledge with the people around you,

you become a person who creates connections.

While it is true that there are some that will show no appreciation

for your assistance, the rest will repay you with loyalty.

 

Share Knowledge to create a legacy

If your accumulated knowledge dies with you,

it must be accumulated from scratch again.

This is not how society progresses.

We use the experiences of others to bolster our own and find

solutions that cannot be found within one generation.

share knowledge

Passing on your experiences will share not only your knowledge,

but your passion you feel toward the subject matter.

You may spark some curiosity or sense of purpose in any number

of people through speaking about your own situational knowledge.

This inspiration is worth more than you will ever know.

 

Often successful people will remember one teacher or mentor

that shared with them a thought that changed their life.

How are you to know when that will occur for you?

The more you share your thoughts, the more likely you are to create

success in someone else in a way you may not have even thought of.
