Usually, the early mornings is that time I guard as It probably is the most productive time of each day for meditation, brainstorming, prayer, and overall not allowing the traditional influences of people and distractions to get in my way. Today, mother nature will drop a blast of snow on us, so I will flip flop my day and brainstorm tonight when I imagine a bunch of snow will give motivation for some ideas.
I am sitting in a coffee shop that is interesting ins that four surgeons are talking to each other, a few others are reading newspapers, and except for the mobile devices in front of them all, you would swear you were in a coffee shop 30 years ago. It actually makes people watching interesting as there are actual movement and interaction among people. This used to be the element that could trigger so many ideas – people themselves.
With people, you never know what you are going to get anymore. It just has gotten a bit odder on the planet, and you have this sense that we all deserve or are entitled to have everything when we want it, and exactly how we want it. Perhaps this is my personal dichotomy in that I found letting go of all the stuff and making a simple life really makes one happier. I learned a long time ago to follow one's heart and passion with work.
I guess that is the only advice I can give to people, but it probably will be advised unheeded. Find what makes your heart sing and go after it. Your life probably will not look like what the herd of society looks like, but you will not be following others, instead, being true to yourself.
The money will happen, and you will be surprised to be getting paid to do something you really love. It won’t be work. You can remember that when you have periods where you are investing and not making – yet – that is a part of what makes the journey so unique.
ok, morning schnuneee (that is a coffee break is swiss time) is over. back to work I go…snow is coming. My treat was seeing a bunch of old men in a coffee shop…giving me a seeming snapshot in time of what a coffee shop used to be.
