Many people have a personal relationship with Time: Time serves as their scapegoat.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Time is an abstract. People are not. At least, most people are not. 

Really, we know Time does not have human qualities.

Really, we know Time cannot march on. Only people and a select group of other animals are able to march.

Really, we know Time cannot wait for anyone. Only people and a select group of other animals are able to wait.

And, really, we know Time is never right or wrong. 

Yet, many people are brainwashed. They think and talk about Time possessing human traits. 

If we give Time human traits then, just like other people, we can blame it for our shortcomings. 

Yes, what a relief! What an escape from responsibility! Time is our scapegoat!

I'm too busy! - I don't have time! | Thought Tweets

You think about how you act at work. Do you think about how you think at work?

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

While at work...

  • you think
  • you act

While at work...

  • you act without thinking...i.e., your habits kick in and you act in rote ways, with very little or no thought
  • you think then act...relying on your judgment to lead you to better action [i.e., action that takes you toward your desired goals]

While at work...

  • do you think about how you think?

Energy is primal. Your energy is your gift. How are you making best use of it?

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

In 1911, James Allen wrote - "Energy is a moral virtue, its opposing vice being laziness. As a virtue, it can be cultivated, and the lazy man can become energetic by forcibly arousing himself to exertion."

James Allen picked Energy as the 1st of his 'Eight Pillars of Prosperity'. 

Energy - that's the starting point of all achievement!

Educate your brain: don't just stuff it full of facts and demand it work harder - mould it so it does a good job of thinking.

If you are thrilled with the way your mind and brain are serving you...terrific!

If you are not thrilled - take your mind to a better place...as one example, train your mind how to think more positively...another example, train your mind how to govern self-control.

Unresolved, lingering problems gnaw away at brain energy. Attack problems and pluck that destructive power away from them.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

The brain represents 2% of body mass while it consumes 20% of body energy. 

The brain is 'energy intensive'.

Much brain energy is consumed/wasted on negative thinking - i.e., wasted on negative feelings and emotions...wasted on rumination & worry.

You gain energy-value when you reduce your brain's energy-waste.

So - Tackle problems quickly: hit 'em high, hit 'em low...rip the ball out from their hands.

If you think you are too busy then you are thinking wrong.

I favour abundance thinking over scarcity mindsets. 

If I decide I think "I'm too busy" then I have selected a scarcity mindset with respect to time, the most-precious commodity...or darned close to it.

So - I must not think "I'm too busy."

And - I must leave "I'm too busy" to the people who choose to embrace those scarcity mindsets.
