Michael Witham @mgwitham: How would you prioritize the following: Self, Family, Money, Success, Spirituality, Health
Nothing. De-prioritize. Start with subtraction. Subtract bad food, bad drinking, bad TV, bad reading (news, gossip sites, emails), bad phone calling, bad meetings (meetings where everyone talks, nobody listens, nothing gets done), bad interactions with people who will bring you down, mindless games (personal, emotional, real), mindless kissing ass (to bosses, relatives, family, friends). Don’t be afraid to sit there doing nothing.
Repeat: Don’t be afraid to sit there doing nothing.
In the comments, please tell me other thing things that can be de-prioritized. The things we spend too much time doing. The gods we spend too much time putting on pedestals.
While I was writing this someone just wrote me from India, “Happy Diwali”. Apparently its a holiday in India starting today. Among other things on this holiday, you clean your house so Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and abundance, feels welcome.
So, in other words, about all the things you need to prioritize. Think of all the crap inside you that you deal with every day. Start getting rid of it. If you take out the garbage, your house will be clean.
