Time-Cheating, Life University Strategies

True_Wealth_1024

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.

  1. Driving University: Listen to audio books or financial news radio while stuck in traffic. Traffic nuisances transformed to education.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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. 
  5. Jobbing University: If you can, read during work downtimes. Dead-end jobs transformed to education.
  6. 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.

Casual

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.

The Purpose – Passion, Service, Happiness and Wealth

Important_Work_1024

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)

…don’t take it personal. don’t ask why did this  have to happen to me…

…life is like an onion you have to peel it one layer at a time and sometimes you cry. life’s going to slapped you around and don’t take it personal. don’t ask why did this  have to happen to me. why not you? who would you suggest? you want to give us some name? some email addresses? and don’t tell everybody 80% don’t care and 20% glad is you…

 

A Life-Lesson

Source: A Life-Lesson Poem by James Whitcomb Riley – Poem Hunter

There! little girl; don’t cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
But childish troubles will soon pass by. —
There! little girl; don’t cry!

There! little girl; don’t cry!
They have broken your slate, I know;
And the glad, wild ways
Of your schoolgirl days
Are things of the long ago;
But life and love will soon come by. —
There! little girl; don’t cry!

There! little girl; don’t cry!
They have broken your heart I know;
And the rainbow gleams
Of your youthful dreams
Are things of the long ago;
But Heaven holds all for which you sigh. —
There! little girl; don’t cry!

My candle burns at both ends;

My candle burns at both ends;

   It will not last the night;

But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends—

   It gives a lovely light!
