Fear - not

I wrote a poem once about Fear. Well, actually, I wrote several poems about fear....
One was titeled "Fear - not..."
Yes, this is my message for the day.
Fear - it comes at times.
However, my friend, to you I say:
Fear not!
Fear in matters close to you is usually a bad advisor.
So I say: Fear  not!
Fear not, because if you fear and do not do, you will look back on all the time you wasted.
So: Waste not!
Enjoy and use your time!

It´s been a while....

It´s been a while…
I had an interesting realization.
Actually two.
One about 3 weeks ago and the follow-up realization today.
I was reading about achieving goals. It had more to do with what you need to do to achieve something in general and in particular with achieving your goals through practice.
Actually, it made the point, that if you practice a lot, then actually you get better. Talent or no talent.
And that practice seems to be a much more important factor, compared to talent, then has been the general understanding so far.
I found this extremely interesting.
There was this expression: Deliberate Practice.
I liked it.
I wasn´t sure yet how I would operationalise it, so I made myself a calendar entry every day that says: “Deliberate Practice”.
It as been popping-up every day at 17:30 in my calendar.
“Deliberate Practice” has become part of my daily life. I usually click it away.
Sometimes I briefly think about it. It reminds me of the things I want to put into my life, the big stones, if you know the jar analogy. Things, which are not very present right now. Like more sports.
Today it just popped-up and I realized: Yes. Now I know how to do it.
Mehr wird nicht verraten…
