I like getting things done. Why? Because everything that doesn’t get done is like an energetic attachment, like a ball and chain on your ankle, slows you down, and prevents you from soaring… having a good time, feeling free and unencumbered.
I don’t like feeling heavy, burdened, or guilty, so I learn, test, experiment with methods that allow me to be free.
I even like to be lighter in weight because I don’t like to be heavy in any way, including physically.
I just had my first ‘podcast call’ with Bonnie, one of my newer students. I really like her. Her first question hit me unexpectedly low: she asked: who are you making the podcast for… who is going to listen to it? who are your customers?
I hadn’t given it any thought… I only thought of what I wanted to teach… hm.
I learned an awful lot from the call… It didn’t turn out the way I envisioned it: 10-20 minutes me lecturing… instead it was a conversation with an intelligent person who, you could hear, could and would implement what I teach.
Back in 2013 I was experimenting with teaching by proxy. In some way I still do it in my Sunday calls.
I just listened to one of my 2013 proxy teaching calls, and I sound a little preachy, a little controlling, but regardless: it was an excellent call.
It is about how live like an avatar. How to live life like an avatar, avatar as in the Nickelodeon series’ avatars, not some spiritual ballyhoo… that I can’t say anything about, because I know nothing about it.
I say: Just the right amount of sleep! when I wake up with a light-clock… it lights come on at 3 am slowly, and by 4 am, when I am between dream cycles, I wake up and have a choice to get up or to sleep more.
Today I got up. But I was very sleepy. It felt like someone inside, not me, wanted desperately to sleep more. It’s been an hour now, and the ‘person inside’ is still whining, insisting that i go back to sleep.
Back in 1987-1990 or so, I also got up at around 4 am every single night and built myself a new profession, a new life, and a new identity.
I learned to live like that from a Dutch dude who had made himself a millionaire with the extra hours he gained from the habit.
But this article is not about the habit; this article is what I learned from him to say when I woke up:’Just the right amount of sleep!‘
And later, I learned to say ‘Time to make the donuts!‘
