How you do anything is how you will do everything.

- John Wooden

Little things matter and compromising on some of the things you do will lead over time to lower and lower quality in everything you do.

slower is better

with one comment

everything moves so fast and you feel bombarded by information

before any one task is finished three more “important” or “urgent” tasks pop up

you feel overwhelmed by… well, by life

on average your mind is lost in thought half of the time, thinking about what you could do, if you could just get to it

stop. mute your phone. close your email client. close twitter and facebook, it just doesn’t matter

take 5 minutes off and have a walk 

write the things that you need to get done and once you wrote something down, let it go. stop thinking about it

take one thing at a time. give it your full attention. try it for 20 minutes 

be mindful. wholly commit. you’ll be amazed

slower is actually faster. every time

divine presence and experience

leave a comment »

There’s a quote I like from the movie Cowboys & Aliens. It’s about divine presence and intervention:

Well, surely you don’t expect the lord to do everything for you. … You gotta earn his presence. And then you gotta recognize it. And then you have to act on it.

It’s the same with experience, First you have to earn it, then you have to recognize it and then you have to act on it.

experience is …

leave a comment »

“Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes.”

- Oscar Wilde

“Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him.”

- Aldous Huxley

You gain experience through failure, strengthen it through practice.

next time, just try it

leave a comment »

Experimentation is the least arrogant method of gaining knowledge. The experimenter humbly asks a question of nature.
– Isaac Asimov

Next time you think about loosing one more minute trying to re-create in your mind  or asking questions about something that only takes 30 seconds to try…don’t. Just try it. See if it works. I’m sure it will.
