"You can only kick with one foot at a time, Otherwise you fall on your arse."
You can only pick one thing that you want out of life, and if you pick the wrong thing, you'll never be successful.
...Joel Salatin said, "the worst thing in life is to get older and realize you got good at the wrong thing."
You would think that the title is about multi-tasking. But it isn't. It is a life that is un-integrated.
So what is an integrated life?
A life is like a symphonic orchestra.
Most people's life sounds like the tuning the instruments phase of the orchestra: cacophony. Bad noise.
Only when the conductor shows up, raps his baton against the music sheets, silence, and music starts. All instruments read the same music sheets, all keep their eyes on the conductor... Integration happens.
One of the brilliant ideas from the 67 steps that hardly anyone considers as applying to them is the idea of spending at least one third of their discretionary time in the company of people who are ahead of them. Preferably by 20 years of experience and wisdom and results in a certain area of life.
These people will be able to teach you something, and you will feel small, ignorant, and maybe even worthless.
But you'll have a chance to learn something useful.
Instead people prefer spending time with ignorant people they can feel smarter than. This is one of the main reasons you can continue feeling a lot more valuable than you actually are.
In my article "democratic" says more about this...
One of my students in the 67 steps coaching decided to start listening to me. That was a huge step for him... This happened after a whole year of pretending that he did in fact listen to me.
As a result he observed his environment and found that his boss is one of those 20 years ahead of him guys.
I have been "harping" on this with my students: hear the principle first, and then hear the rest...
If I asked you (Cinderella) to separate the wheat from the chaff... what would you do first? If you are like me, you first find out what is the difference... in looks, in weight, and then start separating them accordingly.
I even used to use this capacity (oh, forgot to say, it's a capacity!) to hire or not hire someone to work with me. I would ask someone to separate a pile of things by their category...
For you Everything is the same as everything else ... except not always
