A lot of years ago a guy, another participant stood up in a Landmark Education seminar and shared something that has impacted my life to this day.
Here is what he said:
“The other day I was lying on the couch, working on a report for my workplace.
I didn’t like what I wrote, so I crumpled the paper and pitched it to the waste basket that was on the other side of the room. After missing it several times, my wife picked up the waste basket and put it right next to me.”
That was all he said. I was shaken to the core. Move the things you need close to where you need them… Hah.
Because we don’t live that way. We hope to get everything done. We make to-do lists, but something always falls to the wayside.
If and when you add a new thing to do, which happens all the time, something else falls off, or you forget to do it.
You live a life that is set up to remain the same. No matter what you want… no matter what you say.
