A good murder, like good wine, takes time… It is only reasonable if a man is going to spend the rest of his life paying for a murder, he should be entitled to take his time while committing it.
It is not just murder that people are hasty about, impulsive about, it is nearly everything that is potentially impactful on the rest of their lives.
People, you, are either procrastinating about important things, or jump in with two feet, holding your nose, closing your eyes.
Of course the world is full of seemingly contradictory advice…
Here is one:
You don’t have to get it perfect, you just have to get it going.
If you look at this advice one way:

One of the weakest parts and vulnerable functions of the human body is the part that processes carbohydrates… the pancreas.
Our diet, mostly carbs, sweets, juices, sweet beverages, candy, cakes, cookies, cow’s milk destroy our cells ability to allow sugars to be used… so they need to be dumped in fat… or they are poison… destroying the liver as well.
I have had several clients, interestingly mostly Europeans, who are pre-diabetic… and yet were unwilling to stop, unwilling to completely stop eating carbs, even though they didn’t feel well.

What the f… are you talking about. Sophie?
Because 99% reality, 99% of all-there-is is invisible to most of us, we all developed some way to cope with that… and of those the most damaging, the most harmful is assumptions.
You assume you know. Youe assume the context. You assume what is wanted and needed.
Asking questions is below you… you think, and you don’t ask.

The only effective method to make something work is to remove, little by little, all the things that make it not work, or not work as well as it could.
This is true in every area of life.
So what can be removed?

…poet and filmmaker Jean Cocteau said.
1. There are truths that you can only say after having won the right to say them.
2. True realism consists in revealing the surprising things that habit keeps covered and prevents us from seeing.
3. What the public criticizes in you, cultivate. It is you.
4. You should always talk well about yourself! The word spreads around, and in the end, no one remembers where it started.
5. We shelter an angel within us. We must be the guardians of that angel.
IF THE ANGEL DECIDES TO COME . . .
‘If the Angel decides to come it will be because you have convinced her, not by tears, but by your humble resolve to be always beginning; to be a beginner.’ ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Before I answer that question, I want to look at something closely related, but something I have only seen addressed one single time. And that is: how to be in a conversation where you listen in such a way, that everything you say will be delightful for to the other… where you are in a gentle and pleasant dance… instead of how you are now: separate, all about yourself… never dancing, never really having an experience of belonging to the human race, or even to that particular conversation. Wanting to win, wanting to dominate, wanting to be right, look good, etc.
And as a result you now have a life that you don’t belong with the closest people, family, lovers, children… co-workers, bosses, even friends, if you even have any.

What is the “real” meaning of little hinges swing big doors? And what is the practical benefit of knowing this principle? What is the practical benefit of putting this principle to work in your life?
The difference between the 99% and the 1% is what we are talking about in this article.
99% of people, and the 1% of people… that is.
You may or may not be able to raise yourself to the level of the 1%, but you’ll move from wherever you are to a lot higher in income, a lot higher life satisfaction, etc. depending on how well you employ this principle… a concept you probably have never thought of as it could apply to YOUR life.
You are smart… right? Well, no, you aren’t.
Unless your life shows that you are smart, let’s consider that you may be smart, but your actions aren’t.

I don’t remember why, but I signed up to Simpleology, Mark Joyner’s program.
He created a new comic strip, the everyman’s superpower, and, of course, sold it with the same thing he advocates in the comic strip: desire.
Desire, what YOU know as desire, is a lower self vibration, fueled by greed, sexual energy, hunger, anger, vengeance, jealousy, anger… not something you want a lot of.
And even though it is a strong energy, and it may take you to success in some areas, it is destructive of who you are as a person, who you are as a higher consciousness specimen of the species.
I should already be used to it!
“Source”, or whatever it is I am talking to all day, is steering me to do work I didn’t intend to do: experience, test, fall flat on my face, half-kill myself or my business or my relationships.
OK, here is the havoc I have wreaked as a result of this “steering”…

Henry David Thoreau wrote
The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation is confirmed desperation.
What is the meaning of desperation?
Desperate means “having lost all hope.” … If you are in a desperate situation, it means things are really, really bad. Desperate… Both desperate and despair come from the same Latin verb as despair.
I remember clearly what that is like. It wasn’t long ago where I was wholly resigned and therefore had nothing to look forward to…
It was about 10 years ago that I had a turning point.
