Charles M. Schwab was one of the ‘robber barons’ of the early 20th century. He was, at the time, one of the richest men in the world. He was president of Bethlehem Steel, but his ambition to become more and more was insatiable.
He hired famed productivity consultant of his time, Ivy Lee… Ivy charged nothing for his service.He requested 15 minutes with each executive of Bethlehem Steel, and said: at the end 90 days (13 weeks) write me a check for what it was worth to you.

Let me start with the story of a famous thief…
Arthur Barry was described by Time as “The slickest second-story man in the East,” truly one of the most famous jewel thieves of all times.
In his years of crime, he committed as many as 150 burglaries and stole jewels valued between $5 and $10 million.
He seldom robbed from anyone not listed in the Social Register and often did his work in… get this…

I am reading a book, The One Thing. Tai recommended it, so I had been resisting.
But like most of the books Tai recommends, it does have a kernel of gold… Maybe more than one kernel.
One of these is what he says about will power. Quite fascinating and very useful.
He says, that just like glycogen, brain food for thinking, will power uses energy, food, and can be depleted.
I don’t have to rely on will power, because about a year ago I started to reorganize my life to habitually do the things that serve me, and remove the opportunities for doing things that don’t serve me.
It did take will power to establish the habits, but I did it one at a time, and one at a time it was easier to see that the new habits served me. Continue reading “How we spend our days is of course how we spend our lives…”
The 67-step program isn’t about money. It’s about living the good life. Whatever that means to you.
If it is being financially free, rich, beautiful, famous, happy, fulfilled… whatever you are willing to work for, that you have a natural inclination, i.e. talent for, you can become.
I did another teacher’s, T. Harv Eker’s course, The Millionaire Mind Intensive twice.
For me the course had one sentence that was instructive: “It is not making the millions of dollars, it who you need to become to earn and have millions of dollars that matters.”
Harv subsequently effectively sold me courses, courses that cost me over 30 grands… courses that gave me nothing in addition to that one sentence.
This is important, because this is what I have in mind when I think about today’s spiritual teachers: they teach that doing will create beingness. Or speaking… or thinking…

Remember, when something isn’t working, there is something you don’t know.
If your life feels empty in spite of all that’s in it, then you need to look at it and examine it. There is something, a piece of knowledge, is missing… and you are paying the price.
Another saying that really talks to me: the size of your life can be measured with the size of your projects.
But the most important thing is this: you can be doing things, 24/7, but unless what you are doing is hard, challenging, needing you to apply yourself, it is not fulfilling, it doesn’t feel like accomplishment.
Read the footnotes… if you haven’t been reading them, you now know why you are not getting anything out of my posts…
The reason people like doing sports is because they can be measuring themselves against something that is bigger than what’s comfortable.
People who watch sports live vicariously through them… but if you look, the fans’ lives are empty. You need to measure yourself against something bigger than what’s comfortable, like watching others play sports.
Simple, hardworking people are happier than you.

Today was my errands day. It is also the only day during the week when I talk to anyone.
And as you know, talking when I have echo, someone who hears me is the most meaningful activity for me.
I did have private clients for massage, and I did it for 16 years… Giving a massage is not meaningful for me. So I picked and chose, and filtered, and screened the people that wanted a massage: If I didn’t feel that there will be a meaningful conversation, that I would be heard, I didn’t take them as a client.
Hey, it’s my life, and my fulfillment is what it is supposed to be organized around.
I am unabashed that what is important to me is the most important thing for me, bar none.
So being more influential, hearing more echo from you is always on my mind, because it is not working. Not working for me.

The Money Game
One can get caught up in the “money game” on any levels of income. You can even get hooked in its tangles before you make any decision about what to do with your life… as in inherited from your parents, or getting hooked on the perks money gave you through stuff your parents bought you.
No matter when and how you got hooked, you can unhook yourself and be financially free.
What does “financially free” mean?
