I’ve been thinking about making business easier and smoother – you know, effortless. So this really caught my eye.
I bought the book.
His overriding premise is that we should get rid of goals and expectations. I’ve read his blog for years and I’ve read what he writes about this. My gut reaction has been to resist that idea, I mean, how do you get where you want to go if you don’t have a destination in mind?
He develops this theme much more deeply and, dare I say it, persuasively, in this book than he does in his blog. I’m starting to get it now and I’m willing to give it a try this week.
He says if you focus on what you want to do, rather than on what you think you need to do, you will get much farther and have more fun on the way. I’m coming around to this idea, especially as I would like to focus on writing and at this point in our pivot, I can see how writing will be helpful.
I discussed this with my friend Regine (I love my weekly talks with Regine, she makes me explain ideas thoroughly – no sloppy thinking) and came up with the following points:
So, I can, I see the value, I’m intrigued and it suits me right now. I’m a gonna do it. I am doing it. I’m working on what I want to Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday this week.
So far, so good.
How about you? Can you set aside time for fun/passionate/heart’s desire kind of work? If you could do anything over the next ½ hour what would it be? Why not just do it?
