Weird but effective way to think about balance.

“Everyone can perform magic, everyone can reach his goals, if he is able to think, if he is able to wait, if he is able to fast.” - Hermann Hesse

The words in front of me these days are:
Patience.  Speed.  Indulgence.  Sacrifice.  Liberty. 
There's a Yang and Yang effect happening. 

When the sides of a seesaw balance that moment only lasts for a meer second.  Balance technically only lasts one second.  
But to be fair, the little ones need to go back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. 
That's how everyone wins. 
That's how everyone enjoys. 

When I think of balance, I think of it being nearly impossible. The seesaw is in midair for a mear second. 
When I think of balance, I also think of what's fair.  
Back and forth. 
Back and forth. 
Back and forth.

Speed is only appreciated after long moments of patience have passed. 
Indulgence becomes beloved after sacrifices have been made. 

All are necessary. 
The back and forth in a seesaw is required in game, in life and business.
Gratitude is required too.


--> 8 Brutally Honest Truths You Need To Hear If You Want To Get Your Shit Together.  LOVED THIS! Cliff notes version: You'll never regret NOT being on social media, you react too strongly, the riskiest thing you can do is not take a risk, you should always have enough money for what matters, blaming others makes you weak, people are selfish you should be too, only you can complete you. 

--> It's a tweak but a major one.  No more "anti-aging". 

Quick side note from Ashleigh.  Here are my most favorite tools ever.

  • For audio motivation - Relentless by Tim Grover. I listen to him as I was in the mornings.  My walk always becomes a power walk after listening. 
  • To focus during the day I love to focus@will.  They say music helps you focus and for me it surely does.  I blare the classical music.  I am not sure how many people my age choose that over techno but either way I love it.
  • Rosemarie Groner (from the Busy Budgeter) is a friend and I just LOVE how much she gives everything away.  She tells you and anyone she can her detailed way to making money!  Start with her Pinterest Strategy Guide that is worth every penny.  Not. going. to. lie.
