Disciplined thoughts lead to successful actions.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Or, we could just leave things to chance and self-confidence...however, at the very least, that would deprive us of the pleasure associated with the cause and effect between our thoughts (causes) and our achievements (effects).

Thought has two forms: one is Creative, the other is not.

It seems I  am on the verge of concluding Thought is either Creative or Destructive...never in between the two.

Our Creative Thoughts are aligned with our true Goals...leading to productive building and growth.

Since all other thoughts are not aligned with our true Goals they subtract from achievement of our true Goals...leading to things that are not productive building or growth. Their effect is distraction from our true Goals, which is negative, making them "Destructive Thoughts".

 

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?

Problems are like icebergs: their most-damaging parts are below the surface.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

We human beings have a curious habit. We tend to express problems in ways that conceal the real sources of our 'pain'. I suppose our egos make us play word and mind games...prettying up our real problems with make-up so other people will view us in [what our egos hope will be] a better light.

Expanding Good Habits: that is Life's Major Construction.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Our Habits define us. Our Good Habits will be viewed positively by other people...assuming the other people are thoughtful and balanced.

So, for the benefit of other people there is nothing more worthy of construction than Good Habits

And, by definition, Good Habits make us feel good because they align with our Goals.

And finally, Bad Habits make no one feel good; they do the opposite; so, the more they are replaced with Good Habits the better.

Our habits take us either toward or away from our goals.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Your choices, whether intentional or not, become your habits.

Pervasive habits are like governors...some good and some bad. 

The more elusive your goals, the more pervasive your bad habits.

...and, vice-cersa

Paraphrasing Napoleon Hill - the wind can take you east or west, depending on how you set your sail.
