Easy to Do = Easy Not to Do
ACCORDING TO JIM ROHN (Leading an Inspired Life): THE KEY FORMULA FOR SUCCESS IS:
“It all comes down to a philosophical phrase: the things that are easy to do are also easy not to do. That’s the difference between success and failure, between daydreams and ambitions.
Here’s the key formula for success: a few disciplines practiced every day. Those disciplines have to be well-thought out. What should you spend your time doing? You don’t want to waste your time on things that aren’t going to matter. But a few simple disciplines can change your whole economic future. A few simple disciplines can change your future with your family, your business, your enterprise, your career. Success is a few simple habits—good habits—repeated every day. ...
You’ve got the choice right now of one of two ‘easies.’ Easy to do, or easy not to do. I can tell you in one sentence how I got rich by the time I was thirty-one: I did not neglect to do the easy things I could do for six years. That’s the key. I found something easy I could do that led to fortune, and I did not neglect to do it.” (Thanks Brian Johnson, The Optimizer - you always do such great book summaries.)
SO, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO TODAY to start out the day with something to feel good about? What are we going to eat? What are we going to spend our time doing? Are we going to pray? Play with the kids? Call someone so they know we love them? Go for a walk?
One of my easy things to do is to go for a quick run/walk on the beach, early before it gets hot ... because if I don't, it becomes a hard thing. My muscles start to atrophy and my energy level goes down. I like combining things - to turn 10 things into 2 things, so while I run - I pray and listen to spiritual talks. After that I make my celery juice and keep praying or listening to uplifting music. The day just goes better. (If I could shower on the way to Float Norfolk/Renova - that would be even more amazing. Maybe someday(
What are your two things? I'd love to hear. In the meantime, have a blessed day.
