I've been slacking off lately, but here I am again. The other day, I realized what I should be doing, and it's the thing I've always wanted to do. Actually, I've never had any lasting career ambitions. Work just never spoke to me. The whole lifestyle never appealed to me. What did, however, was being … Continue reading My Housewife Dream
Did I spend four hours learning about business, investment and finances yesterday? No, I did not. Am I going to do it today? Possibly. That's not good enough. Effort needs to be taken every day, otherwise the unspent hours accumulate into a mountain of wasted time and a delayed end goal. Is that what I … Continue reading Not Going Smoothly
In astrology, my north node is in scorpio, with my south node in taurus. It means that I cling to possessions, crave wealth and want to amass as much as possible, just to feel secure and comfortable. My scorpio north node needs freedom, spirituality and less reliance on possessions. It needs connections to deep universal … Continue reading You Can’t Turn The Wrong People Into The Right People
Yesterday I went to get new duck eggs to hatch, expecting to get 15 eggs. Instead, I got 20 of them, at a more than 100% discount! My "egg dealer" was so nice, he sold me the eggs for about 1 dollar each. Where I am, they usually sell for the equivalent of about 3 … Continue reading Stop Climbing The Same Mountain Over And Over Again!
Today I am getting my second set of duck eggs to hatch. Yes, I'm screaming inside, of excitement! Almost as nervous as the first time, and almost as worried I'll mess up. Last time, I managed to hatch 10 out of 15 ducklings (13 fertilized), so it's not that I'm not confident in my hatching … Continue reading I Must Not Be Fooled
The easy thing got hard. The other day, I mentioned a minor annoyance that stifled my motivation. It annoyed me because it was disproportionately hard to do. Not a difficult task requiring thought, but simply an incredibly tough door handle. It was hard, and yet, when I tried it this morning, it was easy! The … Continue reading The Hard Thing Got Easy?! And the story behind Jocelin Dawn.
If you try to reel people in with something other than your true motive, they won't stick around. Be honest. Even if it takes longer. Be you, for the long run. I had a dream where me and someone else gathered a bunch of stereotypical nerds, the kind you see in movies, to do one … Continue reading Be Yourself, Reflections
If you can't find what motivates you, start with removing everything that demotivates you. Example: I woke up at 6:30 today, motivated to go and feed my ducklings, but I skipped changing their bedding (saved for later) because I feel strongly against the door to the chicken house, where I get new bedding. Because of … Continue reading Excluding and Refining: In Business and Life
It's a bit contradictory to talk about self-discipline, as I lay here in bed, awake at 2 am. But I'd like to give it a go anyway. (Song I'm listening to:) https://youtu.be/8VbzDAt9RVQ First of all, is self-discipline really the secret to success? Is it really the key to wealth? There is only one way to … Continue reading Self-Discipline, Is It Necessary?
Reflecting on what I wrote in yesterday's post, I realized that I talked a lot about other people. It wasn't ideal. Why focus on other people? There's a good reason for why I did it, though. Not good as in smart, but as in explanatory. The reason is my listening to Rich Dad, Poor Dad, … Continue reading Focusing On Myself, Spiraling Into Obsession
