THESE FURROWED BROWS

THESE FURROWED BROWS

You can spot thinkers
But what preoccupies them
Is it of value?

MIYAGI SAY

Always big mistake
To grow be too full of self
This root in absence
And seed of many error
Result great deal foolishness

THE THIRD WAY

THE THIRD WAY

When you just don’t know
If you’re coming or going
Stop … and do neither

MISMANAGEMENT

MISMANAGEMENT

Wishing to get into the next moment
Believing we shall find there a peace
A place of relaxation and enjoyment
Run hither and thither, helter-skelter

Convinced thus, we transform a now
Into an enemy, an annoying obstacle
When it could’ve itself been a peace
A place of relaxation and enjoyment

SURFING THE UNCERTAIN

SURFING THE UNCERTAIN

What is coming
Round the corner
Around the bend

Perhaps
We can never
Be sure

But then
We don’t need to be sure
To be positive

THE PIT

One day a man was walking to a nearby town across some very rough terrain and managed to stumble into a deep pit with extremely steep sides. It took him four hours to finally clamber out.

Some months later he was travelling the same route and because he was daydreaming he contrived to fall into the same pit again. This time, however, armed with some recollection of where the best various hand and foot holds were, he managed to get out in little more than an hour.

The following year he chanced to be going that way again. He remembered that he needed to take care. Nevertheless, he still managed to miss his footing at the crucial point and yes found himself stuck in the same pit once again. But this time he was out again in fifteen minutes.

The next time he had to go to that town he took another route.

Old habits loom large
And they cast a long shadow
Take stock and take charge

A B C

Simple things are as easy as A B C:

A. Focus on beginning;

B. Focus on continuing;

C. Focus on completing.

Even complex and difficult things are composed of small things.

PROCRASTINATION

Procrastination: the unwanted gift that just won’t stop giving.

KEEPING PACE

If you wish to catch up with yourself you may need to slow down.
