A LIFE LESS SPECTACULAR

We are all born with a genius within us. Yet most of us succumb to a life less spectacular.
So with little pre-amble or unnecessary fluff for this site’s first post, here’s how you can be spectacularly mediocre….
   +  Say yes to too many things
   +  Make excuses
   +  Stay up late
   +  Wake up late
   +  Eat poorly
   +  Sit on your butt all day and avoid exercise
   +  Obsess over digital connection
   +  Check email first thing in the morning
   +  Work more to fix being busy
   +  Buy things you don’t have the money for
   +  Never question your habits
   +  Never question your beliefs
   +  Never living life by your values
   +  Allow fear to get in the way
   +  Always listen to what others tell you (to be doing or how to live life)
   +  Constantly change direction or strategy
   +  Choose instant gratification over all else
   +  Neglect relationships you take for granted
   +  Become naively overoptimistic when it comes to human nature
   +  Don’t be mindful
   +  React impulsively
   +  Lie to yourself
   +  Lie to others
   +  Surround yourself with bad influences
   +  Be in a negative (emotional and material) environment
   +  Hide unwanted things in a mental fog
   +  Don’t have clear audacious goals
   +  Avoid frightening things that stand in your way
   +  Sacrifice progress for expediency
   +  Participate in work gossip
   +  Afraid of being your own advocate
   +  Share good news with the wrong people
   +  Share bad news with the wrong people
   +  Stay within your comfort zone doing the same shit every day
   +  Love mediocrity and get lost in the crowd
   +  Think you can go it alone
   +  One more….. Always have a PLAN ‘B” [think Arnold Schwarzenegger]

Hardly exhaustive I know. But there’s enough there to stimulate your mind into your action. World class is a simple choice. But requires extreme discipline, dedication, obsession and a relentless attitude to never giving up….. however bad things may seem.
