“Ester asked why people are sad.
That’s simple, says the old man. They are the prisoners of their personal history. Everyone believes that the main aim in life is to follow a plan. They never ask if that plan is their or if it was created by another person. They accumulate experiences, memories, things, other people’s ideas, and it is more than they can possibly cope with. And that is why they forget their dreams.”
Paulo Coelho, The Zahir
Step back. Take a second, reflect and examine.
Examine what you’ve done in the past. What you’re doing currently and what you aim to do as you move forward.
The secret to being more productive is being less busy.
Being less busy chasing after everything that glitters.
Being less busy chasing everything that looks like it could be something amazing.
Just breathe, examine, dig down to your roots, and move forward.
Wanting to do big things is great, being able to big things requires the want but it also requires clarity.
