How to get Everything you want (14)

I’m back with Part 14 of How to get Everything you want.

Moving an entire house from town to town(s) and being sick at the same time have made good reasons for myself to stop working for a week. I’m not here to say sorry since I had intentionally abandoned my promise to write, which is not a good habit. In fact, I’m here writing because I want to destroy the “not creating anything” momentum completely.

Let’s get back to work and revise our journey until now:

How to get Everything you want (THEN WHAT?)

Part 1: Every (great) thing in life starts with a vision. Create your vision!

Part 2: Count what you have AND what you don’t yet have; be grateful for both!

Part 3: Take a walk

Part 4: Create your A—>B agenda. Stick to it.

Part 5: Do your homework. Research. Get to know-how (at least theoretically).

Part 6: Differentiate between pure fairy tales and ambitious (but doable) dreams.

Part 7: When you get stuck, unplug yourself from work for a while, go out and enjoy life. Set yourself time to come back to work.

Part 8: DO your best everyday (for yourself first), the rest will come.

Part 9: Select the people that you keep (closely) around yourself.

Part 10: Be patient while accumulating (please don’t be patient sitting there doing nothing).

Part 11: Be happy living frugally, then (one day) you can have it all and will still be happy, then (one day) you may lose everything and will still be happy.

Part 12: Test yourself to see if you have what it takes to get Everything you want.

Part 13: Be Remarkable, create things that are closest to perfection, pay attention to detail.

Last part was my favourite as I wrote about one of my most favourite things on earth – perfection. If you’d read and thought about it – perfection is so hard to achieve, many said it’s impossible – that might be true, however not in the case of rockets. A rocket needs to be perfectly perfect, every pre-calculated math has to be perfect, otherwise you’ll just blow billions of dollars away (each time).

Perfection or the ultimate level of aestheticism requires a complete vision, a lot of creation and the habit to constantly challenge/eliminate the imperfections – I highlighted the habit because it’s the actual execution and it’s powerful; the right habits can (many times) lead you to even the most impossible result – perfection.

Here’s Part 14: Habits are powerful. Create some good ones.

Habits represent consistency; and consistency creates (or destroys) trust. It’s really not worth mentioning the consistent badness, nevertheless I would like to introduce you to the decode of consistent goodness – goodness doesn’t only belong to a small group of gifted people, it belongs to the community of people who are willing to create and maintain good habits.

There’s one obvious fact: we can’t change anyone but we can train ourselves. Champions, masters, achievers, enlightened people are (most of the time) not the smartest, but the ones who train themselves every single day. On the other hand, losers of all kinds buy in comfort and laziness. Nevertheless, hardcore training and comfort and laziness have one thing in common – they are habits, which are much easier to form than to break.

Different habits are the main causes to one’s greatness or nowhere.

Good news, habits can be formed. Good habits or bad habits, they are both habits, they are the same, physically – habits are settled or regular tendencies or practices. You could be the laziest and unproductive person on earth, you too can someday become the most efficient, if you force yourself to repeat and perfect the practice of smart working until yourself feel comfortable with the routine, a.k.a. your new habit. Trust me, once you get there it’s gonna be unthinkable going back to the “useless person” habit again (and that’s not because you’ve then become a better person, that’s just how habits work).

I have been putting in a lot of reasoning but examples and citations in this article because I seriously haven’t got time to read during the past week, and my brain hurts. My reading habit has become so established that my brain literally screams out of emptiness if I don’t feed it with words, books for a few days.

I would very much love to see you too come up with a list of few healthy habits and promise yourself that you are gonna train yourself everyday to become the best of the best.
