Inspiration vs Learning

Would you rather chose to be inspired or to learn a valuable skill?

Without inspiration, it is very hard to start learning new things.

And this is where I think books like The Greatest Salesman in the World could help you.

I have listened to the audio book recently and honestly; it didn’t resonate with me at all.

One of the reason why is that I had read The Richest Man in Babylon and the Greatest salesman seem to be heavily inspired by it.

I can understand why it has so many positive reviews. If you read it as a first book, you can be inspired and start applying the fundamental principles.

But, if you, like me, had read The Richest Man in Babylon, you don’t need inspiration anymore. Your goal might be to build on top of what you already know.

Therefore, inspiration becomes useless after you are already inspired. You must find a way to build on top of it and move to the next level.

The messy meeting

When you know there will be a messy meeting and there is nothing you can do about it, the best thing to do is to avoid it. Messy people produce messy meetings, and they take the time and the energy of everyone who is part of it. That is why instead of being part of this drama, find a better team and better meetings to invest your precious energy.

The recovery day

 What to do once all the presents are opened? Should we just move forward with our goals? As I wrote about recovery day after flying long distance. It is important to plan a recovery day after the holidays. This is your guilty free time.

New year preparations

 I stopped preparing for things since August this year. I decided to go with the flow. With no plans for the New Year, today I received an invitation to a party. Seems like not having any plan was the best plan in the end.
