Is the only thing we have. If it is beset by obstacles, tackle them. If you have opportunity for rest, take it. If you can smile through it all, there is a kind of freedom in that.
If you don’t act like one. Embody the profession, embrace its difficulties, and get on with the work.
Learn from the greats, and don’t be intimidated by them. They just did the work in their time. Now you must do yours.
It makes you readier for absence.
At the end of the day, ‘we’re all just walking each other home’ - Ram Dass
There’s enough amplification of negativity already.
It’s a duty.
However minimal, keeps one moving forwards.
On which every other good habit builds.
From the mundane.
Doesn’t have to be reserved for food. It could be used for any vice: screens, caffeine, nicotine.
With sleep, not caffeine.
Isn’t just for old people.
Anything will do. Any forward progress is still progress. One action, one sentence, one foot in front of another.
For your most important work. And when the time comes, use it.
Every once in a while. If you have overindulged, treat others.
Skipping steps and cutting corners is not representing the best version of you. You have more time than you think, so do it right.
How you’re feeling today. It’s okay.
6 months, 12 months, 5 years. But only if you stick to the task, daily.
