- WRITE THINGS DOWN
You don’t have to be a freaking Steve Jobs or John Grisham to write things down. I know, bad examples, but there is no need to get things perfect. Just start writing, strike them through, write again. But do it. Write it down. It will help you so much. You will be focused. You will have more possibilities to reflect.
- FAIL. FUCK UP. GET IT WRONG
What the hell are you doing? You are actually not doing anything! And why? Because you will mess up? So what? If your kid draws that shitty drawing, and shows it to you, you gleam “aw it’s a dinosaur! very well done!”, and your kid yells “It is a banana!”, what is it you do? Do you stop your kid from drawing? Or do you let it keep on drawing? (If you stopped your kid, you are one bad parent. That is a legitimate judgement call.)
If you failed in your business? Fix it. Start again. Failed in your project? Find the problem, just fix it. Just keep on going. Get up. Keep going. Do something else, but just go.
- GET RID OF STUPID SHIT
Surround yourself with as many things that inspire you, give you energy and serve a purpose. Get rid of everything else, or replace them as fast as you can. Need help with that?
Think about what you are saying. Think about what you are doing. Think about the people and crap in your life. Who are you? Are you where you want to be? What is it you really (REALLY) like to do to give you energy? (and you can be as weird and awkward about that one as it takes.) What do you really need to give your life value? What sort of people do you want to surround yourself with? Go get it, or do it. Now.
- MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS
There is a huge difference between privacy and keeping things secret. If you look at other people’s life and judge them, your mind is avoiding your own problem. It doesn’t matter to you what another person does in their life. Keep your eye on the ball. Or as Kacey Musgraves sings:
Just hoe your own row and raise your own babies
Smoke your own smoke and grow your own daisies
Mend your own fences and own your own crazy
Mind your own biscuits and life will be gravy
