The past few weeks have presented problems personal and professional. Although my slate may not be entirely clear right now (such as the the one above), I feel that it is getting there, primarily using interesting solutions.
In handling the personal problems I have found myself analysing different philosophies, but have resorted to the "shoot first and ask questions later" approach. This has yielded the results that have confirmed what I already knew. Although Schrödinger would disagree with me (having not opened the box), you can still get a sense of whether the cat is alive or not.
I have allowed other professional commitments build up a little over the last few months and have started clearing them in the most optimum way that I can with the current work commitments that I have. It's progressing as best as possible and starting new projects while clearing old ones has also been good for focusing my mind.
What have I learned from this?
- Start: there is no go point or good time.
- Commit: Forgive yourself if you fail to reach a target, but recommit each day.
- Quit: Know when to quit. There is a lot of philosophies regarding never quitting, but it's important to know when to quit, some things are just not going to work/happen.
- Energy: Positive thoughts are not enough without positive actions and positive feelings.
- Trust: If you get a bad feeling about a person or situation, trust it.
Perhaps, the most important lesson of all - "Is what I am doing today getting me to where I want to go tomorrow?". The answers can be quite revealing, both the destination and the method. I feel like i am not now stuck between "Fuck it and What if".
