Ce semanati

"Se spune pe drept cuvant ca "ceea ce semanati aceea veti culege". Daca semanati in copii mania veti culege razbunarea, daca semanati vinovatia pentru greseli veti culege neincrederea, daca semanati neincrederea veti culege lasitatea.

La fel, daca semanati in copii credinta veti culege speranta, daca semanati speranta veti culege increderea, daca semanati increderea in ei insisi veti culege curajul de a fi tot ceea ce pot sa fie. Iar pe langa acestea, daca semanati dragostea veti culege iubirea, care este mai presus de toate.
"

Produsul este numai un pretext...

"Jim si John, prieteni din copilarie se intalnesc dupa 20 de ani. Jim era un prosper om de afaceri, iar John ajunsese somer.
Impresionat de situatia acestuia, Jim ii ofera o slujba la firma lui, sa vanda frigidere... in Alaska.
John era superincantat si dornic sa se apuce de treaba. In cel mai scurt timp a plecat spre noua locatiei a slujbei sale ducand si cateva frigidere... "de proba", dupa cum se exprimase Jim, destul de neincrezator in prietenul lui.
Dupa o saptamana John trimite un fax in care mai cere cateva frigidere. Jim ii face pe plac si ii mai trimite cateva. Dupa inca o saptamana, alt fax, in care John mai cerea frigidere.
Vazand ca gluma se ingroasa, Jim il cheama pe John pentru a discuta si a dezlega misterul frigiderelor.
- Ce faci cu atatea frigidere in Alaska?
La care John ii raspunde sincer si foarte hotarat:
- Pai... a fost mai greu pana i-am convins pe eschimosi ca e mai cald in frigider decat afara!"

... practic ceea ce se vinde este ideea si utilitatea sau... senzatia de lux.

The First Hour

Why The First Hour Is The Key To Your Success

There's a key to mastery and success. And the key to this door, is open to everyone if they follow a very simple piece of advice. If you want to achieve mastery, here's the secret that superstars use to get to superstardom--and then stay there.


It's called the first hour of the day

Imagine you wake up at 11am. What's the first hour of the day? Why 11-12 right? And if you wake up at 4am, then what's the first hour? Again, it's 4-5am. What you do in this first hour of the day, will determine if you're a success or not.


So if you want to write a book

What do you do in the first hour of the day? You write. It doesn't matter how much you write, or the quality of your writing. You simply write. At first, this core discipline will drive you nuts.
You'll want to reach for your coffee. You'll want to read the newspaper. See the news. Do anything but write. Yes, you can go ahead and have the coffee, but drop all other distractions. And put the first hour of the day to do the what you really want to be; and where you want to go.


Some days you can write

Some days you can read about the techniques to write better and faster. Some days, you may want to listen to an audio on writing.
As long as you stay focused on getting the first hour of solid work done, you'll get better and better. Till one day, you'll really hit your stride. When you do what you do for 300+ hours a year, you'll get so much in front of everyone else, that you'll be amazed with your own progress.
Try it. Dedicate the first hour of the day to your craft.
Too many of us are keen to learn the tricks of the trade. Learn the trade instead!


Personal Experience

I wake up each morning and I write. Or read. Or exercise and listen to learning audio. If you were to pass my house at 4am in the morning, you'd get the strong smell of Colombian coffee, and hear the pitter patter of my laptop. That's if I'm not huffing and puffing away doing my exercise. I was like
everyone else.
I too knew little or nothing about my trade. I simply ran my business, and then one day I learned this secret of mastery.
But hey, you don't have to wake up at 4am. You can wake up at 11am.
Just make sure the first hour of your day is dedicated to you and your trade!

Calatorul

Timpul calatoriei mele este lung;
calea pe care o am de strabatut este fara sfarsit.

Am iesit pe aripile primei raze de lumina
si mi-am urmat drumul prin singuratatile lumilor,
lasand urma mea pe atatea stele.

Calea cea mai lunga ma aproprie cel mai mult de tine
si modularea cea mai intortocheata este tocmai cea care duce
la perfecta simplitate a acordului

Calatorul trebuie sa bata la toate portile inainte
de a ajunge la a sa.Trebuie sa ratacim prin toate lumile din afara
pentru a ajunge in sfarsit la templul cel mai launtric.

Lasat-am ochii sa rataceasca departe , inainte
de ai inchide si de a spune: Tu esti aici.

Aceasta intrebare , aceasta asteptare
se topeste in lacrimile a o mie de fluvii si cufunda lumea
sub valul acestei certitudini: Eu sunt.

~ Rabindranath Tagore

February

"... what could I do with this perfect month?
[...]
What one thing can I promise myself to do every single day, for just 28 days, and keep my word about it, and how will I feel at the end when I have completed it?

What if I could just get inside of this box. I could say to myself "Here I am. I'm in February." How would I see the world from there and how would the world see me? How would I choose to BE inside this box?

What if I chose to be totally present and conscious, not walking around in a daze, but aware of each moment, taking nothing for granted, counting each blessing, savoring each encounter, relishing each experience, feeling grounded to the earth, perhaps for the very first time, viewing it all from a higher place than before. And if I found myself off centre, I could remember, "Hey, I'm in February" and get back in the box, so to speak, get right back on track. I could remember that again, and again and again, if I needed to. I could do that for just 28 little days!"

Happy February 2009!
