Consumption Creation Ratio – Top o’ the Mornin’ to Ya’! – Abundant Life

Please create more than you consume. The only way to make a difference is to actually take action. Measure your time this week and determine if you’re creating or consuming each hour or each 30 minutes. If you’re not creating more than you’re consuming. . . I mean lots more. Consider making a change AND measure it. We don’t know if we don’t measure and we do change what we measure. There was a broadcasting fail so here’s the bonus retake for LinkedIn (it is a bit different–worth your time): My pillars:–God–Family–Abundant Life–Adventure–Technology Do you know...

Who Not How Reflection: Purpose of Life, Most Important Life Skill, and Problems

I just finished reading for the third time: Who Not How I was enlightened to find the meaning of life. Well not quite but he does reveal the purpose of life: “Relationships are the purpose of life”. Closely related to that, the “Most important skill” in life was demonstrated. No matter what you’re age it applies even though hearing it may suggest that it is only for the young. Dan Sullivan (in his 70’s or 80’s) tells how he continues to do this at his age: “ask questions of adults”. I could do a better job at this. Problems, life is full of problems but they are easier to bear, understand, overcome and solve with the first two hints above. This quote from the book: “If you have enough money to solve a...

What Has Your Attention? And How Does That Hurt You?

What are you paying attention to? Why are you paying attention to that? Who told you to do that? How much do you trust them? Do you miss anything by following their advice? Now, after watching that video. . . make sure to stop before the bike part and apply it to your life and thinking. . . Do you miss anything by following their advice. I like to think I’m really good at paying attention. My wife even asks me sometimes how I keep track of so many details. So, when I saw this video at church recently it raised by awareness that my paradigm probably isn’t as open minded as I think it is because of what I choose to pay attention to. I can do better and always try to seek first to understand and Stephen Covey put it. Have a great day!

Using the Miracle Morning to Jump Start My Day

I’ve been using the Miracle Morning (affiliate link) for 23 days now and It is sort of amazing. I’ve been starting my day at 4:00 a.m. and going through the Life S.A.V.E.R.S. for an hour or an hour and a half. It has given my day and my mind a Jump Start. It wasn’t easy and it really challenged my mindset, attitude, and willpower. If you know me you might find that amazing, but it did! Miracle Morning Life S.A.V.E.R.S. Here are the Life S.A.V.E.R.S. from the Miracle Morning as I’m applying them now: S – silence – 10 minutes of meditation and prayer for me A – affirmations – read out loud the affirmations of my life V – visualization – 5 minutes read part of my life plan or imagine things going well this...
