It's not about what you do, it's all about how you do it.
A lot has been said on the subject of making plans, and working the plan, writing lists and getting the stuff done. I want to add some food for thought. If you are not enjoying what you are doing and feeling good while you do it, your productivity in the actions you take will not be high. The results we get from work we do when we feel stressed, tired and uninspired does not meet the standard of work we are capable of doing when we are feeling, creative, fired up and in our full energy flow state. You can have two salesmen working on selling the same product. The one who is distracted, depressed and hates his job just won't be able to keep up with the one who is motivated, clear and loves what he does.
Being Unhappy Affects The Way You Work
Your level of emotional wellbeing has a dramatic effect on how productive you will be. Having even just one extremely negative person on a team can also disable a teams ability to work together as a powerful and effective unit. Personal development techniques like meditation and mindfulness is one of the most effective ways to learn how to generate more love, passion and enthusiasm for what you do. It is our human nature to want to be good at what we do, and to try to out perform our best performance to date. The secret to achieving success is by following your bliss and finding out what you naturally enjoy doing.
Do What you Are Really Good At
Being really good at something turns us on. There is nothing like being able to do what you like and what you are good at every single day. Look at all the success stories and there lies the secret. The love and passion for what they do is what gives them the determination to keep going regardless of the curve balls, set backs, uncertainty or whatever else appears on their path. Nobody is not good at something! Everyone of us has a gift. Some gifts are given more glamor and importance than other gifts and that's where people get confused, and start thinking they don't have talents and things they are really good at.
It Could Be More Simple Than You Believe
The first thing you need to do is recognise what you are really good at, it may be something simple like enjoying to be around people and talking to people. it may be something you never thought was very special like enjoying to be out in nature, or growing your own vegetables or planing games, or helping people find solutions to problems. Whatever it is there is something which you are good at and that you love doing. Once you have defined your natural and/or developed gift/gifts the next step is to start thinking out of the box about how you could use/develop these skills to start making money for you.
Thinking Will Change Your Life
As a meditation master and lover of the "no mind" state it may seem like me asking you to start thinking may be me contradicting myself! LOL, but trust me, it's not. Not enough people use this aspect of their human capabilities correctly and there for most sadly don't benefit from it as much as they could. Worrying and obsessing over things is just mental activity which is not the same as focused and directed thinking processes like, creative thinking, brainstorming, out of the box thinking, visualisations, contemplation time, listening for ideas. These types of thinking processes are all the same as digging for gold in a goldmine. When we take the time to think in this way, it is like sieving through the dirt and in time discovering the gold nuggets. You will be amazed at how you will find ways to turn your gifts and passions into gold, if you just start to allow your self to think creatively and without restriction or limitation....
