I couldn't think of anything (I do have goals, but there's nothing that I want to fit into 2015 in a pretty little way, like some people have..)
So, Jan 20th comes, and I told myself, inwardly, to not worry.
And then I asked myself, 'what to worry about and what not to worry about exactly? break it down for me'
And so I did, and it came to look like a mantra..
-do not worry about dad's and sister's operation, they're not.
-do not worry about anyone needing you; that's Allah's right.
-do not worry about returning back to your country, what will be will be.
-do not worry about love, u always have it
- do not worry about the next goal, you might die before it.
- worry about today's goal so you don't regret it if tomorrow comes
The last one is just paraphrasing something I really loved from Dale Carnegie's books..
To live in day-tight compartments
It has inspired me all my life since I read it sometime in 2007.
Yup, for ~8 years of my life, it's been my guide.
Occasionally, I forget about it and my life becomes a temporary mess.
But I always find the light and return to this nature of living in day-tight compartments..
And when I do, I remember and say to myself in the voice of Brian Tracy (whom I discovered circa 2010, along with Tony Robbins, courtesy of my awesome and only non-African, Arab, guy friend). Guys, I'd like to take a detour from my point and say that I am being racist in putting it that way, because very few non-African, Arab guys are guy-friend material.
Ok, now.. I say to myself, in the voice of Brian Tracy, whose name I once shortened to Bracy, 'Write it down.. write it down'
Always write down your goals.. break them down if they are big..
always write them down..don't be ambiguous
write them down..
That guy friend was more concerned with prioritizing these goals...If you have made a habit out of writing your goals, then go on and prioritize baby, prioritize!
That's all for now, gotta continue working on today's goals.. ;D
