One of the emails I never fail to read, and never fail to benefit from in some way is the Monday Morning Memo.
What I like about it, and you probably would hate, judging from many YOUR choices which of my emails to read… What I like most about the Monday Morning Memo, is that it is a sideways view. Sideways from my view.
And as every sideways view the Memo shows the world different from ordinary. Just differently enough so it enriches. Enriches my world, allows me to be happier, more productive with more ease. So it delights me.
People are asking this question: how do I start? How do I get to where I want to get to?
And when I tell them how to get started, they ask the same question again. My answer wasn’t good enough for them.
So the insight I got is this: when you followed the current harmful teaching to imagine yourself where you want to be, you are expecting me to hand you the key… not tell you how to build that new reality from the bottom up.
This ‘imagine…’ bullshit has destroyed people’s ability to see themselves, and see reality, accurately.
Nothing works the way those ‘imagine people’ say… everything in reality is built from the ground up.
Yesterday someone asked me how to talk to someone to get a date.
I wish I have read it a decade or two ago. It would have made a huge difference.
It brought to light a ‘delusional’ worldview I have, where I expect people to do what I would do.
I’d never realized, and I am in shock. I am mortified, and it is, sometimes, too late, even though it’s not over till the fat lady sings. But I think it may be too late for me, but it is not too late for you.
