The Way We Work

We normally have a tense, fidgety attitude towards whatever we are doing. We grasp and lean towards our tasks and exert ourselves unnecessarily, and even things that shouldn’t give us undue stress, end up being stressful.

Love Your Day

To go through the day with ease:

  • Talk to the person in front of you, being present in the moment

Focus on important tasks

To create space for what is meaningful, focus on important tasks.

Pick just 3 (or even just 1) and focus on that first. Put aside everything else (you can come back to all that later) and create space for what’s meaningful in your life.

  • Relaxing with someone else. Feeling connection with them.
  • Being fully present with a simple activity, like drinking coffee.
  • Playing music, creating art, dancing etc.

How to relax

You can relax while doing something (having a bath, a cup of coffee etc.) You don’t have to be lying down, with your eyes closed.

The key is to make this the one thing that you’re doing. Be all in with this task, instead of jumping around.

The fragile, non-resilient approach to change

The problem when we try to change make changes in our lives:

  • We set out to do something regularly (for example, exercise, meditate or write something)
  • We fail at it
  • ...

The idea of anti-fragility

It comes from Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s book Black Swan. The main idea is that many human-made systems are fragile. Something comes to stress the system, and it falls apart. Some systems are robust or resilient, which is much better than fragile.

Even better is the idea of being anti-fragile: stress makes the system stronger.

Failure helps systems get stronger

We can make human-made systems more anti-fragile by designing ways that stress will make the system better able to handle stress.
