In the midst of all the chaos in the world, your health can easily get compromised.
The body stays healthy when it is nourished. This nourishment can take many forms. Good sun, good home/roots, good friends, good food.
My whole life has been dedicated to finding the tools in the world that can make your life a little bit more wondrous. And complete.
There are 2 factors most of us on planet earth are concerned with: time and money. If you have plenty of money, you can hire people to help you, and buy tools that relieve pain and stress.
If you have time, you can use it to do the things many people can't because they are too busy.
One key principle is to know the value of your time. What is it now, and what do you want it to be in the future.
So if you have a job where you make $25 an hour, it makes sense to delegate any jobs you do that could be done by someone willing to work for much less. It's leveraging your time/money equation.
Some things in life transcend money, so it's important that if you like doing something like gardening, washing the dishes, you figure how much you want to do and how much you want to delegate.
The pace of the world is increasing exponentially. There are forces in the world that we have very little control over that are constantly trying to influence how we spend our time and money. It takes discipline to be aware when you are being manipulated.
Any thing that can be used for good can also be used for bad. Over the last 50 years, there has been a lot of research on how to influence people.
Great examples are the barrage of pharmaceutical ads you see nowadays on the television. You watch beautiful people having fun in the sun while they are telling you that you need to buy this drug to help with a problem you might have. If you listen to the words, they are telling you that you could die taking this product. But the producers know that most people watching are much more influenced by what they see than what they hear.
Take some time to answer some important questions.
How would you rate the quality of your life?
What are the areas of your life that you have control of? Do you have habits In place that support your purpose, or are you easily swayed by outside influences?
Next time we will talk about the 80/20 rule and how it can be a valuable tool for making decisions in your life and work.
