There was a guy who wanted to learn Asian martial art. He went to the Shaolin master and asked how long it needs to learn Shaolin. The master said only 10 years. What is if I practice every day 12 hours, can I learn it in a shorter time. The master replied, then you need 20 years.
What is, if we are planning our future, and the realization needed much more time, and we give up?!
If I don’t know a task or if I have to try out new things, I can’t schedule the time correctly. My focus is only to do the stuff. Otherwise, I would mess up if I can’t keep the time to finish the task and even put me under pressure and stress me. For what? Let us enjoy to make new exciting things/tasks and make them relaxed and with fun.
The same is true with goal setting (for things/tasks that I don’t know) for a particular time. As Bob Proctor said, it is okay if my time setting has not worked out for my goal, it is just a delay. Everything is under the control of God, and God knows it better when we should reach our Goal. If we are thankful in advance, that we will reach our goal, everything is easier, regardless of when.
With our impatience and over-eagerness, we prevent and sabotage our success. Sorry I have done it a lot.
If I make sure that nothing is urgent or life threatens, I slow down, and the things are coming much faster, and I also enjoy my time.
For sure I am against every rushing that is truly not necessary because it brings so often the opposite that I want. Zen: Don’t run behind anything. Or impatience is a part of the ego, so why I should follow my ego?
When I make new tasks, I don’t plan in advance, for what?
For new tasks, I work very concentrated, make maybe many mistakes, don’t beat me up for any mistake and look that I enjoy the work. My goal is to finish the task, enjoy the moment and to be relaxed.
