Change Your Actions

The scenario of a life turned upside down can be improved by:

  • Monitoring the quality of one’s input.
  • Pushing yourself for some exercise, which is sure to beat the blues.
  • Reading actual paper newspapers instead of mobile phone articles.
  • More fresh food, less processed food.
  • Working with work clothes on, not pajamas.
  • Bringing a change in routine and scenery.

IDEAS

The traditional approach to goal accomplishment revolves around the idea of winning most of our inner conflicts. Grit and determination are emphasized as the keys to victory and the positive side should always win.

This approach assumes that there is within us a stockpile of willpower that gives us the power we need to act constantly toward our long-term interests; if we can’t seem to do that, the failing is as much a moral one as a practical one.

Work as a linear function

We assume that the amount of productive output we create is directly proportional to the number of hours we input. But the truth is that most thoughtful, brain-intensive work does not unfold like this. The only work that is linear is really basic, repetitive stuff.
