We are once again at the start of a workweek.
So I thought this would be a good time to share this piece.
Yeah, apparently most of us try not to be Lucy in the contest aboveSo we rise early each day and hit the road to make a good first impression on that new job, to win over that client, to seal that contract, to make up for last week’s mess, to attend to our kids, to catch the school bus and even to clean our homesYou just don’t wanna be caught lying around like some unserious fellow on a Monday.
So we are up and doing round the clock, some of us even take the work home and stay on it deep into the dead of the NIGHTHalf-sleeping and have awake, startled only the alarm and you wipe your eyes, grab a brush and a towel in a matter of minutes you’re on the road to begin the same routine all over.
So much for not being Lucy! Worthy to keep up?
Yes, we all have needsIn short our bills seems inexhaustiveThere’s groceries, electricity, wardrobe, medicals, rent etc and they do not diminish as we grow, the reverse is the case and yeah someone just have to take care of themSo we work hard, work those asses out, especially if your dreams are really bigYou work the hardest to commensurate it.
To, many of such persons they go as far as sayingTime is of the essence, time is MONEY and cannot be wasted on things speaking a contrary language.
One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was from a horse masterHe told me to go slow to go fastI think that applies to everything in lifeWe live as though there aren’t enough hours in the day but if we do each thing calmly and carefully we will get it done quicker and with much less stress.” Viggo Mortensen
So you see it’s a matter of time managementMake to-do lists if necessary, encompassing leisure and relaxation moments and how best to spend themAlso, be ready to follow them devotedly and stick around for the outcome.
“I do not particularly like the word ‘work.’ Human beings are the only animals who have to work, and I think that is the most ridiculous thing in the worldOther animals make their livings living, but people work like crazy, thinking that they have to in order to stay aliveThe bigger the job, the greater the challenge, the more wonderful they think it isIt would be good to give up that way of thinking and live an easy, comfortable life with plenty of free time
I think that the way animals live in the tropics, stepping outside in the morning and evening to see if there is something to eat, and taking a long nap in the afternoon, must be a wonderful lifeFor human beings, a life of such simplicity would be possible if one worked to produce directly his daily necessitiesIn such a life, work is not work as people generally think of it, but simply doing what needs to be done.” says Masanobu Fukuoka.
