WRITING 157: SELF-TALK

YOU MUST VIGOROUSLY PROTECT THE TIME FOR YOURSELF. FOR NOW, RESERVE THE AFTERNOON FOR PLAN AND ACTION. THE TIME YOU WILL DELIBERATELY NOT WORK. IF NOTHING ELSE, JUST READ. OTHERWISE, PLAN AND THINK ABOUT MY FUTURE.

THIS DELIBERATION AND ACTION TIME IS VITAL FOR YOUR GROWTH AND ULTIMATE HAPPINESS. YOU MUST PROTECT IT. DO SO FOR THE NEXT 3 WEEKS, UNTIL IT BECOMES A HABIT. THIS IS TIME FOR VISIONING, PLANNING, AND TAKING ACTIONS. FURTHER, THE MEASUREMENT OF DARING IS HOW MANY SETBACKS YOU HAVE: THE MORE YOU TRY, THE MORE SETBACKS YOU HAVE. THE ONLY WAY TO HAVE NO SETBACK IS NEVER TRY.

MOST OF THINGS ARE NOISE. ONLY A FEW ARE ESSENTIAL. YOU NEED TO FOCUS ON THOSE ESSENTIAL FEW. YOU NEED TIME TO PLAN AND EXECUTE YOUR VISION. THEREFORE, YOU MUST PUT UP THE BOUNDARIES FOR YOUR LIFE. FOR WORK, YOU HAVE BEEN THERE, DONE THAT. NOW IT’S TIME FOR YOUR LIFE.

    • Not going well. Thank you for remind me. It’s hard to discipline yourself not to work, when several projects are vying for your attention…

      You know what, I was planning to work on TQ2 for the afternoon. But after seeing your message, I will keep my original plan—the time for life, not work—till it becomes a routine, a habit.
