I’m learning that trying to make myself tough reduces my ability to create
I’m learning the difference between existing and optimizing
I’m learning when I should test myself more and when I should let myself grow
I’m learning that there are rules for how to be good at life
Rule #1: Show Up Rule #2: Do Work
Context doesn’t matter at all, neither does your opinion. But you do need to fill in the details yourself, or else someone will do it for you.
No secret, no shortcut. Just these principles.
Here’s the thing though. You can only work your way up. you can’t “try” to reach the bottom. the bottom can only be reached when you are out of control. besides, why spend so much energy on self-sabotage?
Rule #1 + Rule #2 x INFINITY = Success
