"You can’t think your way into right action, but you can act your way into right thinking".

If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting the results you’ve always gotten.

If you want to get different or 'better' results, you have to do different things. And you have to do those things before you feel ready.

Your body takes cues about your own identity based on your actions. Your mind is always watching what you do and you can change your mind with new behaviors; not the reverse.

Once you act differently, your mind will take notice and it will actually change your self-image.

Time Management Is Not A Solution

Most people want more done during the course of the day, feeling productive if they have checked more boxes out of their to-do list. Time management has been a fad for a long time, equating productivity with the number of hours spent working.

The way we approach time management is proving to be a vicious circle of wasting time managing time, turning it into a problem rather than a solution towards productivity.

Many people are uncertain about their behaviour and what action they should be taking at any given moment.

This uncertainty manifests in fear, stress, and anxiety.

Some Zen Ideas on handling uncertainty:

  1. Keep the big picture in mind.
  2. Take one action at a time.
  3. Dance with the uncertainty.
  4. Leave no trace.
