When the brain is overwhelmed with too many tasks, it tends to ruminate and hold as many as possible in working memory for as long as it can. The result is this human tends to think too much- act too little. Eventually this brain fatigues from too much thinking/too little acting and pops. Hard stop, oftentimes. Not smart.
However, when your brain has clarity about worldview, identity, principles, passions, purposes, and process, it’s freed from thinking about the big stuff while trying to manage the small stuff. Smart. The reason some humans sweat the small stuff more than others is because they lack clarity around their W.I.P. & 3P. Their BTL core lacks definition. These humans think too much about daily tasks and stressors because their brain can’t connect the dots and make sense of it all. Not smart.
Want to increase your ability to get stuff done? Work on the hard stuff, first. Get clarity within. Build your strong, BTL core and authentically author your labor of love, your OPUS. Sweat the big stuff, if you will, even though your brain is telling you there’s no time and these deadlines right in front of you are labeled “dead” for a reason. You are not your mind. Control it. Make your brain tackle the big stuff, first. Sweat the big stuff. Before you know it, you won’t be sweating the small stuff. The problem isn’t that you’re sweating. We are meant to labor, friend, just not in vain. We are meant to labor toward our aim, toward our labor of love. Here, is where we drain the tank and come away feeling somehow fuller. Here is where we truly find ourselves.
Remember, friend, hard labor you will disdain as you tire. Hard opus you will sustain as you tire. Have your chosen to do the hard work within, leader? Have you settled for becoming a highly paid laborer? Is one of your identities the reflective actionator? You know you can do more than you think. Do you? You choose. Your choices have consequences. Sweat the right stuff, my friend. Smart.
Live hard. Love harder (Thanks, Teeks)…
