Experimenting With a Day Away From Electronics

Posted by in Spiritual/Emotional

Yesterday I experimented with a day from electronics. These are the rules I set for myself: I would not get on the internet to do things like surfing I would not use apps I would not check email I would not watch TV I did allow myself to make phone calls and test since I did not want to cut communication. Also, I allowed myself to read books on my Kindle. This is that I learned: This is harder than I thought. It is almost like an addiction to want…read more

Things Aren’t As Bad As They Seem

Posted by in Spiritual/Emotional

I recently listened to the audiobook Abundance. They key takeaway from this book is that things are not as bad as they seem. Lately I have been following others in believing that something bad is going to happen in the near future having to do with the government doing something negative or society taking a hit or collapsing. The book helped me to realize that we have built in biases that lead us to believe something bad is going to happen. These biased are hardwired into us to help protect…read more

The Great Escape

Posted by in Spiritual/Emotional

Over the past few years I have lacked of fulfillment in my life. I have tried many projects that help a little but nothing that has really set me off. I am a problem solver and I decided to attack my lack of fulfillment at the root of the problem. I wrote down, to the best of my ability, all of the problems I was having. By the way, fleshing out thoughts through writing really helps you connect the dots on a problem where you cannot do it in your…read more

Create a Pivot Point

Posted by in Spiritual/Emotional

I am one of those people who fills his time doing “chores” and not a whole lot of life changing activities; be it starting a business or adding more joy to my life. I do this because I rarely plan anything worthwhile and it leaves me bored with life. This is something I have struggled with for a long time. For some reason I feel responsible to keep everything going at home even if those things are not that important. I am good at eliminating those things that are not…read more

How I (try) and Stay Happy

Posted by in Spiritual/Emotional

It is not always obvious how to be happy but I don’t think worrying about it all the time is not how to get there. Plus, what makes me happy does not make you happy. Where you end up in life is made up of thousands of little actions making it your own path. Be careful trying to follow someone else’s path because you probably will not end up in the exact same place. Maybe unhappy from expecting an exact outcome and not getting it. Here are some of the…read more

Unhappy Trying to be Happy

Posted by in Spiritual/Emotional

I wanted to dig into the subject of striving for a goal verses being happy with what you have. I have touched on this topic in the past but I want to expand on it a bit more. This is a¬†balance is difficult and different for everyone. Ron Morriss¬†used to say that a lot of discontent comes from a person seeing what others have and then comparing themselves to that person (I don’t remember his exact words so I am paraphrasing). In the self improvement arena we encounter a different…read more

How My Actions Effect Others

Posted by in Spiritual/Emotional

  I am going to make this a short post since I burned out a little working on the soccer site project. The one week project finally ended after 6 weeks. Lately I have been thinking about how my actions can possibly negatively effect others. I feel pretty confident how my actions effect others when immediate feedback is available. What about those times when the feedback is delayed and/or diffused? For instance, I used to spit my gum on the ground when I was done with it. I was okay…read more

Don’t Be Me, Be You

Posted by in Spiritual/Emotional

  I get the feeling that some people compare themselves to me especially when it comes to health and exercise. I am very regimented in the way I approach eating and exercise and it sometimes seems that others observe this and feel bad for not being this way. I believe this stems from media constantly telling us we eat wrong, we are fat, and lazy. I eat and exercise this way because I enjoy it, that is it. Enjoying yourself is what matters, not trying to be someone else. I…read more

Confessions of a Madman

Posted by in Spiritual/Emotional

I believe that certain things are intentionally put in our path to help guide us in our lives. This is how I found Dan Miller’s book 48 Days to The Work You Love which changed my life. I believe I am at the beginning of another one of these changes. Lets start back when I found Dan Miller’s book. At that time I was consuming a ton of information which taught me motivation, success, leadership, find work I love, figuring out who I am, and general personal development. While digging…read more
