info_outline What can you learn from a one-track pony? 10/25/2018
What can you learn from a one-track pony? I have been, I am just noticing, making myself miserable. What got me out of that direction down to desperation, ultimately, a Carlos Castaneda quote: The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same But, not so obviously, Carlos Castaneda is suggesting that you practice positive thinking, which is a thoughtless practice. So what can you do? First, I need to get, again, that there is never anything wrong in reality. So if I notice something that makes me miserable, feel bad, etc. I have some words coupled with what is happening. The words come as an interpretation of what is happening, and 70% of the time it is wrong... wrong, as in not accurate. Every interpretation is, at best, appropriate. Reality: collective hunch at best. And if that is so, I have a lot of leeway to look at what's happening, without an already always interpretation, so I can see what else could be happening. The thing I was driving myself into despair was about the not enough response to my articles, and to my offers. People don't like me. I am too strong. My offer is too strong. I want a commitment too fast. I have to change. I have to earn a living some other way... ...all struggling to dominate my day. All inside: there is something wrong with me... and I have to fix it. Not fun. Now, looking through the Carlos Castaneda quote... I can look to see aspects, interpretations that shed a whole different light on what's going on. I decide to look where it is invisible to me... outside of where I have looked before. I decide to investigate why it is that people want what I promise, the end result, and yet they are unwilling to put themselves into the seats and do the work that is required. I explore this question and look deep into it in my podcast audio on this post.

info_outline strategy vs tactic 10/20/2018
strategy vs tactic The difference between strategy and tactic strategy: long term, many steps, towards a distant goal tactic is a step that without a strategy goes nowhere if you don't determine where you are and where you want to go, you will only have tactics... short sighted actions that feel good but don't gel into an overarching strategy The sticky point is, surprisingly, having to bring clarity to the starting point. Why? Because of your base context that is always there: there is something wrong here... with you, with them, with it. so you don't want to look at that... you just want to fix what feels wrong. even if you can move, it will bite you in the ass
