Week 7, 2024

Sometimes a thing just has to be done in less than ideal circumstances. And if it has to be done, just do it, and try to smile. The second you realize that you have choice, then the question is: "Who do I want to become?"

Nearly everyone overestimates what they can get done in a day, and underestimates what they can get done in a year.

Expect great things for yourself... we're all counting on you

A second, a minute, an hour, and a week, are all objectively measurable... but... as we all know, our experience of a second can feel like an hour, likewise, a week can feel like a second. And so... how can we act each day to make that day as rich and long of an experience as possible?

I think I have spent the last year thinking "Don't hit the rock!" about various creative and business ventures. And I am going to try to be done with that. It's going to take some reminding, and some mental habit adjusting, but I have confidence that I am ready to move on to "find the path."

I have been pulling the Massive Action Society together, and it is a lot of moving pieces. A lot of systems need to be "just so" so that everything happens the way it is supposed to.  I am trying to channel my inner Oliver Burkeman. He mentioned this strategy on The Drive podcast last week.  Instead of being focused on the outcome, anticipating and hoping and angling... try to be curious.  "I wonder what will happen."

Your life has meaning. You know that to be true, even if occasionally you deny it out of depression or a macabre sense of humor.

And so, why struggle, why strive, when "none of it really matters anyway" ?

I think it is because you have to try, for it to matter.

Maybe it is the historical "fish struggling up onto the land" inside of us, that makes us need struggle or maybe it goes back further than that... Entropy is increasing, everything is falling apart, but life wants to try to pull order from the chaos. Life needs to feel like it is capable of pulling order from the chaos.

Striving, struggling, trying, scraping, any synonym for grappling... MAKES IT MATTER.

One person reacts to a devastating event by using it as the fire for their boiler, and another reacts to a small slight by being totally devastated. I suppose neither is wrong, each just is... and there's wisdom in Marx's quote: "From each according to their ability, to each according to their needs."

I believe that chasing dreams IS holy magic in a sacred place.  I want to shake all of the joyless people working an angle, and tell them "WE NEED YOUR FULL CREATIVITY AND ENROLLMENT HERE!!!"  Please, this week, regardless of the cost/benefit calculation, bring your full self to whatever you are doing. It will help make the world a more interesting place for all of us.

We are launching the 66 Day Massive Action Society in September. The 66 Day M.A.S. is my attempt to help you squeeze a bit more juice out of life for a minute. It's a sprint to accomplish a big project, and/or a streak to help you change a habit. It is 66 days of a daily action, defined by you, to accomplish a goal, defined by you.

It takes a lot of energy to change directions. All the grooves, and habits, and routines are tugging you back to the into the rut of the old you, and you MUST keep working until you are free of the gravitational pull of the old stuff and into the orbit of the new you.

You can do it. You just have to do it, and then keep doing it.

Many times we find ourselves waiting for other people to decide things that will shape the course of our possibilities and opportuntities. Creating opportunties on your own terms involves choosing the work over ego. What are you willing to give up, and what are you willing to take ownership of so that you can control your own opportunities?
