morning babble / Monday 07-25-22
This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes, it gets tidied up; but other times, not so much. When all else fails: watch the video!
25 days of meditating. . . in a row. Today, Sam Harris taught me: “No matter how stressful or busy your day might feel, you can always “put a smile in your mind” in the present moment”
I use the “Waking Up” app and I am thoroughly enjoying it. I have not worked out or ran since my U of D 5k run on June 5th.
160 days until EXIT PLAN
GOAL SETTING MONDAY & REVIEW –
Yesterday, I was finally clearing out some emails and was drilling through some James Clear ones. His newsletters really are the best. Anyway – I retweeted the following:
“A surefire way to make a bad situation worse is to continue replaying it in your mind.
The damage is done. The only thing that matters now is making the best choice given your current position.
Next play mentality.” – James Clear
Don’t dwell – GO!
I’m also wrapping up listening to the audiobook – The Art of Impossible by Steven Kotler
Reminded me of several ideas, but a key one in setting goals for the day is you begin it by “Eating the Frog” – I believe that was a Mark Twain quote, too.
Please subscribe on YouTube and spread the Babble wherever you can – Thank you!
