The Year in Thought 2019

Some of the thoughts that stayed with me, that really impressed me were from some of the books I read.

Rhyuho Okawa - An Unshakeable Mind
When you find a problem troubling you find out what the problem is trying to teach you, and the lessons you need to learn.
What you do every day determines what you become.
Worry happens when you look outside and not inside.

Gary Douglas
Carry enough money in your pocket that makes you feel rich. Stop saying 'I can't afford it'.
How does it get better than this? What else is possible?
Judgment limits your capacity to receive.
Live life in 10-second intervals.
Celebrate every day.
Living in a state of allowance.
When we align or resits we solidify - instead lighten by not aligning or resisting. Simply say - it's interesting.
If you want to have something, it must be inside you.
Make money light.
Create the vision of what you have by connecting the power and energy to it.

Rich Dad, Poor Dad
The rich don't work for money. Their money works for them.

The four villains that mess good decision making - narrow framing, confirmation bias, short term emotion and overconfidence.

Pitch Anything - Oren Klaff
Eradicate neediness - 1) want nothing, eliminate desire 2) focus on what you are excellent at 3)  announce intention to leave

Deep Work - Cal Newport
Deep work - Professional activities performed in a state of distraction-free concentration that pushes your cognitive capabilities to their limit. These efforts create new value, improve your skill and are hard to replicate.
1) Work deeply 2) Embrace boredom 3) Quit social media 4) Drain the shallow work spots

Ikigai - eat 80%, move around a lot, celebrate every evening with friends

At least five of these concepts if I can practice regularly, I will be a much better man. Deep work is n my agenda, the Ikigai style of living, living in allowance without any point of view, being non-judgmental, living in 10-second intervals, lighten everything, when there is a problem looking to see what it is teaching me.
