For those fellas who still hold the intention of going back to school but complain of lack of time and money, here are some time-cheating, “life university” strategies.
- Driving University: Listen to audio books or financial news radio while stuck in traffic. Traffic nuisances transformed to education.
- Exercise University: Absorb books, podcasts, and magazines while exercising at the gym. In between sets, on the treadmill, or on the stationary bike, exercise is transformed to education.
- Waiting University: Bring something to read with you when you anticipate a painful wait: Airports, doctor’s offices, and your state’s brutal motor vehicle department. Don’t sit there and twiddle your thumbs— learn!
- Toilet University: Never throne without reading something of educational value. Extend your “sit time” (even after you finish) with the intent of learning something new, every single day. Toilet University is the best place to change learn, since it occurs daily and the time expenditure cannot be avoided. This means the return on your time investment is infinite! Toilet time transformed to education.
- Jobbing University: If you can, read during work downtimes. Dead-end jobs transformed to education.
- TV-Time University: Can’t wean yourself off the TV? No problem; put a television near your workspace and simultaneously work your plan while the TV does its thing. Watching transformed to work and education.
Think about the time you already use. How many hours do you waste in the trivialities of life? This time doesn’t need to be lost, or wasted.
To start, choose a topic that interests you or an area in your life that needs improvement. Not good at sales or writing? Get to the library and start reading. I can’t stress enough that the more knowledge you consume, the more torque you create.
You go in life casually, you might end up a casualty. Comfort is a beginning of losing stability. Life is too short to live miserable, either way, you can’t get out of life alive, so you had better spent your time in the field fighting for what you believe. The healthiest eyes shed tears.
These three I will hate…
And one is /age/
With age come weakness,
A weakness of the mind,
So I will meditate.
The other is /sickness/
With sickness comes pain,
A reminder in our fragile mortality,
So I will live lovingly.
The last is /poverty/
With poverty comes resentment,
A bitter indignation at having been treated unfairly,
So I will work hard and be contented
You can smile if you want to, just accept to appreciate others;
You can laugh if you want to, just listen /at/ the children play;
You can feel loved if you want to, just be kind with /the/ words;
You can be inspired if you want to, just give in to pull of art;
It grows up, and goes up;
Each climb I take, up it goes;
When I rest, up it grows;
Up I haste, it grows up;
I aim higher, up it still goes;
If you can imagine it, then you can be it;
If you can dream it, then you can touch it;
If you can feel it, then you can believe it;
If you can see it, then you can live it;
If you can strive, then you can survive it;
If you can sound, then you can sing;
What you can’t break down, you can’t make up;
What your head can’t, your hands can not;
What you feed your mind, shapes your perspective;
What you give ~ you get, what you give ~ you are;
What goes up, must come down;
What goes around, comes back around;
It’s the will, not the skill;
It’s the walk, not the talk;
It’s getting more done, not doing more;
It’s how you respond, not react;
Its growing thru’, not going thru’;
When you realize your purpose, the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it (~ Paulo Coelho ). Your passion if often linked to your purpose (~ John c. Maxwell). A fulfilling purpose must mean to selflessly serve others (~Robin Sharma). You can do important work if you do not become self-important; you can do several things as easily as one if you leave yourself out (~ Urantia book). The fruits of living your purpose shall be Happiness and wealth. True happiness is rooted inside as a great contentment with life and an appreciative perspective toward the diversity of life (~McKabue). Complete wealth entails family, fitness and freedom (~MJ DeMarco)
there is, actually there is;
a short cut to happiness;
its success, and conquering own limits;
it’s a fixation onto a dear goal
its possible, its really is;
to live an extraordinary life;
its living every moment, once;
its working on oneself, repeatedly;
its now, it’s right now;
a time to choose your fate;
it starts with creating a personal philosophy;
it starts with changing one’s perception;
