Are you wasting your time energy and focus doing the things that you don’t like (or) Are you worried about your outcome or the guarantee of success of the work you do?
Here is a podcast that tells you why not to focus on the outcome and only focus on the work you do.
- The only way to get a great outcome is to show up with the practice and get better.
- Practise says “ I don’t have to be in the mood, it’s my work”.
- The practice is not the means to the output. The practice is the output because the practice is all we can control.
- TO MAKE ANY CHANGES BY WORK YOU NEED TO ASK 3 IMPORTANT QUESTIONS:
WHO IS IT FOR?
WHAT’S IT FOR?
WHAT CHANGE AM I SEEKING TO MAKE?
- PUTTING YOUR WORK ON THE HOOK:
It might not be beneficial for one but might be for others.
E.g. Turkish bread loaf.
We must always do the work with a practice that ignores the guarantee that it will work.
You cannot do your masterpiece in the very next hour.
“EVERYTHING TAKES TIME TO MAKE A CHANGE”
- “ Abby decided to paint one oil painting every day, but after a few years, her eBay sales went from 100 dollars per hour to 800 dollars per hour.
- People purchased it because she was good at it. But all this began with an idea that I can connect people through my practice.”
- To trust ourselves doesn’t mean that we just do whatever we feel like and are guaranteed that it’s going to work.
- Practice says I am committing to this method and I am going to have streaks whatever it takes and one day I will get better at this, and serve the people.
- E.g. Seth Godin received 800 rejection letters when he started as a book packager but he did not keep making the same mistake. Rather he made new mistakes and something clicked into place and I learned to see and within 2 years after that, he sold 20 books and over 10 years he sold 120 books.
- “If you want to change yourself, your identity, you have to change your behavior first and not the other way around.”
- Doing the work changes our story about the work and I think it’s so much more reliable, and so much easier, to love what you do than it is to do what you love.
- Most successful people don’t verbalize.
- Joni Mitchel “ They are going to crucify you if you stay the same. They will also crucify you if you change, so I would rather be crucified for changing.”
- “ Life is on a tightrope, and the tightrope is the only place to live.”
- Our jobs as humans are not only to eat, sleep and die, but our job is to sing, dance, connect or to lead.
- “ Consistency is part of being peculiar. Consistently generous, consistently showing up, rhyming with yourself in a way that you’re proud of but no, not authentic. You’re not entitled.”
- When people are angry, look at the fear, they are not probably angry at you, but they are probably afraid of something and they express it to us by being angry about something we did.
- Adopt a practice of making things better.
- Only focus on the work you do and not on the outcome.
- Always have a purpose for the work you do.
- Always be consistent in the work you do.
- Always have trust and faith in ourselves.
