Tip #6:  Set short term goals

Worrying about long term goals would make it hard for me to hold on to them.  So I made my goals shorter.  “Process goals” that I always finished and felt good about.  Then the future takes care of itself. I set up process goals and fun tasks and projects so that I never had to worry about future outcome.   I wrote on my wall: Be Brief.  Be Swift.  Be effective.    The best futures get created in the present moment!  The worse thing is to be so worried about your future that you miss creating it now!  Create projects and small adventures that lead you to the grand vision you want.  -Chandler

If you’re not having fun, you not doing it right. – Fran Tarkenton

Take action now
Take action now

Forget considerations of Happiness and just get into action!  Happiness is something you notice you are feeling later after you have been at it awhile.  Don’t create your year, create your day.  Figure out the perfect day and then live it.  The year will take care of itself.  So will your life.  – Chandler

 

A.  Kick Procrastination in the Arse  – Start small, and then smaller!!!

Break it down into small, fun easy steps.  Firstly, you must dismember procrastination.  We procrastinate because the mind makes all future task big and scary.  Humorously, even little things when we are imaging them in the future can become frightening.  Without a doubt,things appear larger and more difficult than they are.  Obviously, thinking and imagining the worse case scares us into putting everything off.

B.   Action is the Answer

Small action, not big action!  Try 3 minutes.  We can tackle 40 neglected things in 2 hr. this way.  Take any tiny action you can.

Furthermore, make it a policy to just do the thing that you are procrastinating.  Absolutely, you know, the one you are thinking about right now!  Intentionally, take a small peice of that one and take action.  Most importantly, keep life creative and simple asking yourself what can I do now in this 3 minutes.  That is all you ever need to ask and procrastination will never bother you again!

C.  Time to Change the World with Quality over Quantity

Are you doing your best now with each thing you do?  Then slow down!  Consider, doing what you are doing really well instead!  Clearly, slowing down can get you in harmony!  Slow way down in your mind!   Unquestionably, meditation is helpful.    Especially, don’t race ahead of life and miss this moment.

Please Note:

When you slow down to master this present moment!  Life then gets fearless!!!  All anxiety is about the future!!!  

Imagine, if you only had this one client or one project could you focus and do it even better!  Aim for quality over quantity with laser like focus.  Relax and slow down!  Likewise, you must learn to say no to the things you don’t really want to do, so you have time to say yes to the things you do want to do.  

D.  Split the Atom – make it tiny

‘If I am waiting for inspiration then I can wait.  If I am procrastinating (I know something needs to be down) due to my own worried mind then I split the atom.  The atom is very small but when split becomes powerful.   The smallest acts are like atoms.  They turn out to be important acts in our lives.  Identify the big scary imagined task as a distortion produced by the worried mind, and then go small, as small as possible.

Can you devote 3 minutes or 1 minute to the task?  Otherwise, we can get lost in the self-loathing and mental fatigue of a worried, frustrating, busy, overwhelmed and judging mind.  Cleverly, notice your stories and how they keep you stuck.  Understand how worry and fear can create passivity.  Finally, you can channel the worry or fear into being alert and focused so you can prepare for what needs to be done.’

Tip #7:  Find the balance between information/stimulation coming in verse creativity going out

Are you Drunk on Information? (too much in and not enough creative out!)

We take a lot in but what went out?  Undigested information is poison just like undigested food.  Take out your sword and cut away the clutter to open up clear space for creation.  Eliminate dings, beeps, lost time on social media, tv, games, etc.  Refreshingly, let’s rise up and use this moment now!  Pull something out of your future and do it now!  Importantly, our time is valuable.  So, you must avoid the flurry of multitasking and chaos, and carve out the uninterrupted time!  Use this eternal present moment and fear dissolves away!

Tip #8: Live Now

Gold comes from the present moment.  Moreover, embrace the present and increase your capacity for living.  Undoubtedly, the greatest opportunity for success is right in front of us.  Yet we often fly right past it looking for a better future.  Conversely, slowing down goes against our cultural nature.  Clearly, it creates inner anxiety and we strain so hard against the leash of racing around.  No wonder no valid plans can be made.  Those plans are fear-based (invalid) because they want a ‘better’ world than the one that presents itself now in the present, this moment infinite opportunity.

There is no way you can’t have the best life on this planet.  No one stops you but you…that’s the only possibility. – Byron Katie

You don’t have to know what to do or how to do it.  Stop trying to decide.  Sadly, we waste so much time trying to decide.  It is not a deficit in knowing that stops you.  Just Choose now and do it!  Choosing takes no time.  When you choose you have already chosen.  It is in the past.  You have decided.  Then you can figure out the next smallest step to move forward.  JUST CHOOSE!!!

Tip #9: Failure is the Ultimate Success

Keep moving forward
The only failure is not to try again

 

It is not a fear of failure that stops us.  It is the fear of the appearance of failure.  If we fail in private then who cares.  It doesn’t matter.  It is about approval.  Warriors drop all of that!  Forever!  They don’t live for the approval of others.  The live for the service project they are committed to.  – Chandler

Action is Good for the Soul!

Worry is the ultimate in disfunction.  It chills the body and keeps us stuck.  Powerfully, action warms the body creating fire for action.  Move through with Action.  How do you motivate?

Try this:  Do the action first,  then the feeling of wanting to do it will come later.

The biggest fallacy is that you have to feel like doing something first.  Not true.  Don’t wait to feel like it.  Just do it and the motivation will follow.  It shows up and you realize it was there all along.

Tip #10: Love what you are doing and cultivate creativity

Are you endlessly searching for the perfect calling, purpose or job?  “Love what you do and the money will follow!!!  If you wash have a job of washing dishes and you do it to the best of your ability with joy, love, and commitment, then you will quickly get promoted.  Because you are loving what you are doing.   Nothing gets more attention than that.

Create your Future

The best way to predict the future is to create it. – Peter Drucker

Kiss the ground
The present is a gift

People without creativity lapse into the victim position.  Just like a garden needs water, soil, and sun or it will lapse into weeds.  The same goes for our minds.  And then fear creeps into every part of our lives.  Even the beautiful parts like our family and friends can fill up with fears about them.  We worry about what might happen.  The story of you is no longer inspiring.  Then we fear poor health or that money will runout.

No wonder there is no more creativity.  There is no longer love of life.  This is the disease of the victim mentality.

But warriors clap their hands and turn all that around.  As soon as we see it, we can change it.  Time to get up in the light, dance and laugh and sing and take creative action again.  -Steve Chandler

Be Fearless in one area of your life!!!

 

Bring in a sword of deep curiosity into the belief system and slash through old thoughts and beliefs.

To change the world start with yourself!!!

What happened when I worked on me?  Definitely, every area of my life got better, and I uplifted those around me.   Live by example and you will inspire others.  If my intention is to help others then I must be careful not to judge others and drive them deeper.  Lovingly, have the deepest compassion.  Know that there is nothing wrong with anyone.  No one needs to be fixed.  Rather inspiration is the best way to connect with others.  Are you an inspiration to others?  People are inspired by who you are being!  Truthfully,  your glow, light, creativity and fearless actions inspire others.

Try risking your identity

take a risk
Take a risk

That is what has to happen to go from pretty okay to absolutely great.  Really, we have to lose our freakin identity.  honestly, it’s our worse enemy!  

Be who you need to be in the moment and then be willing to change that in a heartbeat! – Chandler

Let your ego, built up personality go.  Then, let your deepest desires awaken within you, creativity and expression.

The problem with hope is that it producing a longing for external circumstances to change ignoring the beautiful internal resources already there.

 

Tip #10:  Warrior not Worrier

The worried mind wakes in the morning and projects the worse case scenario into the future.  Then, it thinks that is its job.ur brain does not know the difference between our vision of the worse and the reality.  The worry has such a negative effect on the body as if it were true.  This suspends action.  What to do? Use the energy of worry to prepare for something, or to be alert and focused.  I love the book:  The language of emotions by Karla McLaren where she talks about how to channel the power of our emotions to serve us well.   TAKE ACTION!  CHOOSE AND MOVE!  Take that decisive action enough times and your fear will dissipate as you have answered its call.

who is going to stop you
you have control

 

I was looking outside of myself for permission and approval all day.  A nasty habit that leads to poverty and broken relationships.  We acquire such habits in childhood wherein they protect us.  In adulthood is no longer serves us.  It eats away at the spirt.

So ask a different question.  Who is going to stop you?  You don’t have to see success in order to create.  Just create from your heart.

 

take action
Act from the heart

Whenever you are stuck thinking, “What is my next action?”, let movement and decisive energy guide you!

Other Quick Tips:  

It is a Project, not a Problem:

See it as no longer a problem. It’s a project which is a lot more fun!

Get some Help: 

Looks to big?  Get help!  Working with others we see a lot more options!

Honor Completion

Complete every project.  If you only solve part of it, then you will carry it around.  Unsolved projects suck the life energy out of us!  Drain us!  So start and finish one thing at a time!  Don’t rely on feeling like doing it!  You have already decided so just finish it, just do it!  You have already chosen.  Follow through!  The feeling will come later!  Notice how unfinished things leave you tried at night.  Procrastination makes you have less energy!  The more you finish, the more energy you have.  Procrastinators worry about things.  This eats up the mind and energy.  The Warrior takes action and finishes strong.
