20-40-60, you may recount is the BTL recipe for slowing down and speeding up. We recommend our clients embrace this discipline six days a week – 20 minutes of reflection/meditation/prayer. 40 minutes of reading/writing around something meaty to make you better. 60 minutes of exercise. Some clients embrace this. Most don’t. We do. You see if 20-40-60 is good for our clients, its got to be more, not less for the builder.
My commitment is 30-120-90. I do more to have the energy, strength, and conviction to make a few do what they can. Fact. If you want to teach anything, get comfortable being a perpetual student. “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” Thanks, Abe. What’s your disciplines to stop the do, do, doing, and take some time to sharpen?
I’m currently reading David Epstein’s latest titled Range. It’s about experimenting and playing before finding your domain to dominate. I just read how Van Gogh made Abe Lincoln’s path to the presidency look like it was linear. Van Gogh tried and failed at nearly everything for 34 of his 37 years on this planet. He kinda killed the last 3 with his paintbrush. His discipline of intense observation led him to paint masterpieces like Starry Night in next to no time. It just took him awhile to find his canvas and medium. He killed it because he kept playing/experimenting. Nobody had to tell him when he found it. The same is true for you, friend. So, keep working, keep playing, keep experimenting, keep observing, keep going. A burst is coming. Good.
Live hard. Love harder (Thanks, Teeks)…
