Choices…choices….

“I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve (or save) the world and a desire to enjoy (or savor) the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”

E. B. White

People, like Organizations, either keep going Up or they start going Down. No choice. Change is the only constant.

‘Savoring the world’ soon palls. As RB put it, “I lived my way and I had a whale of a good time. All that has begun to pall. I now want stuff like the old values,the old ways, the old culture, the old world charm. A sort of symmetry to life”.

Also note the Windsors. The guy whose Dad worried so about him and who gave up his throne for the American. They had Everything …….. but Nothing to Do!!! Well, what they did not have was Power. They had the money, the contacts, the culture, the position, the background .. Well everything But!!!

Look at Yourself. On a day when at the end of it, you are supremely satisfied and happy with yourself. Its not a day when you had nothing to do; and you lounged around all day doing nothing. Its rather the day when you had everything to do and you did it.

Row Upstream. Dont let the current take you down.

Btw.

Planning the Day should not be on awakening in the morning. It has gotta be at Night before going to sleep.

In fact two things got to be done. Taking stock of the day that has passed and of what are the plans and projects for the next day. Both are best done before falling asleep. The Mind works on what has got to be Done.
