How To Thrive In Chaos


Recommended Posts



The world is in a strange place.

Only a hundred years or so ago, it was perfectly fine to just show up.

You did what you were told, and you'd have a job and family.

Today, there is very little structure to anything.

Everybody does whatever they want.

There doesn't seem to be any rules.

This is both good and bad.

Good because you can get away with a lot of stuff that you couldn't get away with a hundred years or so ago.

Bad because there are few external incentives keeping people on track.

With the right external incentives, normally hard stuff can be easy.

If you joined boot camp, for example, getting up at the crack of dawn would be easy.

All alone (with only internal incentives) it's very hard.

But if you CAN come up with your own internal incentives, and live by them, you can create ANYTHING you want.

This is the double edge sword of modern life.

You can do a lot of stuff.

But nobody is forcing you.

So it's very easy to slack off and take it easy.

And once you start doing that, it's a hard rut to get out of.

Luckily, you can start very slow.

The myth of motivation is that you need a TON from the start.

People think of the word "motivation" and they think of some guy leaping out of bed and going on a ten mile run in the morning.

That works for a couple days.

A much better and easier way is to start VERY SLOW.

Do one small thing toward your goal or habit.

Then do that one small thing until that one small thing becomes a habit.

Then do another small thing on top of it.

Slow, steady, consistent growth is much easier that super power motivation.

Because slow, steady, growth adds up over time.

What "small thing" should you try?

Mental exercises are the easiest.

Do them for five minutes.

Same time every day.

Once you learn to control your thinking, you can control everything.
