The path of least resistance is the easiest path to travel. A good friend of mine once said “any dead fish can float downstream.” It is easier for us to remain where we are in life rather than make significant changes to alter the course we are on. It is easy to become overwhelmed as we try to plan out a course of action to achieve our goals and dreams. Hopefully, what follows will help simplify the process and put you on a more focused course to success.
Heat radiating from a kitchen oven, the fragrance of cookie dough, of chopped walnuts and melting dark chocolate chips: thus begins many of my fondest childhood memories.
And it’s not only that chocolate is my greatest vice in life, perhaps even my greatest ‘sin.’ Figuratively. You know, I can romanticize a little. Some might even find the analogy appropriate, especially since I can gulp a pound at a time without an ounce of guilt.
And it doesn’t take me twelve hours to absorb a batch of cookies, even as I futilely attempt to make them last as long as possible. No, I’m not writing about confession, but artistry, the titillation of taste buds, memories and, above all else, you. (After all, who else would I expect to read this?)
One of the most important qualities of almost every millionaire I know is that they are laser focused on managing their time. Personally, I always have a hard time with the term “time management” because in reality, you can’t manage time. But you can manage action. So what this chapter is all about is helping you master the art and science of action management.
I’ve spent thousands of dollars on different programs and seminars looking for the one perfect time management system. Unfortunately, that perfect system doesn’t seem to exist. But by taking pieces from each one and some of my own, I came up with what I believe is as close to perfect as possible.
Success in its broadest meaning is not limited to only monetary and material possessions. It reveals as being plentiful in countless and several forms in life and nature.
The universal spirit of consciousness, craves to continuously manifest and express itself; this power likewise expresses its longing to demonstrate success, which is naturally wanting to develop, to grow and become bigger and stronger.
However, many realize this longing and natural inclination for growth repressed in them, because of negative thinking, unconstructive programming, and not having enough faith in their abilities and themselves.
Every individual has dual natures. One wants the self to move forward while the other feels like pulling back. The one nature that one concentrates and cultivates on determines what one is at the final end, as both natures tries to hold and to be in control.
