Uncertainty

The present moment is fused with uncertainty.

I have blind spots, areas where my knowledge is less than perfect. I’m not completely unbiased. There are areas of life in which I’m ignorant. I may be operating counter to my goals and not even be aware of it. Some areas of my life seem to be functioning positively and some not so much. Maybe I’m confused and in those areas I fell good about, I’m deluding myself or hiding the truth or missing the obvious.

It is a challenge being a human. 

Hope you have an awesome day!

This journal is meant as a reminder to encourage my future self.

The "our" loop

I have never been separate from myself even for a moment my whole life.
Is this a problem?

Nobody hears our inner dialog (thankfully). We justify all my actions based on the situations we're in. This format a feeling of rightness or at least an excuse for our behavior. But this not the same curtsy we grant others. We feel others do things because of their character, because of who they are. 

This is the fundamental attribution error. We don’t understand causation or statistics and this fuels our separateness.

We miss out of so many opportunities for positive interactions by focusing to heavily on ourselves, our stories, our plans, our moods, our thoughts, our situational landscape, our level of education, our family dynamic, our job politic, our troubles. 

Our - our - our - we’ll never find peace unless we get of the treadmill of “our” and start to on focus on service.

Hope you have an awesome day!

Resolve

I am not making any new years resolutions. 

None. 

Not one. 

Zero.

I plan on doing less, fewer personal commitments. 

Trimming those current habits that are not working to move me forward. 

Freeing myself for Deep Work, FOCUSING on what is in front of me. The opportunity costs are too high to make new resolutions. I’ll let this year be a year where I consolidate my gains. 

Look to depth not breadth. 

Review and reevaluate later.

Hope you have an awesome day!
