Seth writes a blog post every day, and is inspiring. Sometimes the post is in depth and a great long read, sometimes it is short, but questions your life choices in just the right way. I highly recommend following his blog.
In this post “confusion about enough” he talks about the fact that we want more of some very shallow and relatively easy to get things, ie. likes on an instagram photo, yet we do not want more of the harder to achieve difficult things like deeper thinking and mind expansion.
Funny that, given this talk by Dandapani, a monk, that I happened to watch this morning ties into that too.
Deep thought/ reflection on “Confusion about enough”
I have been taking the time to do more deep thought and reflection lately, very gradually. I have read many books on it lately. The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod is one important book for me as it helped me to “formalise” my morning practice – really cement it into my day. I also have been listening to and changing a morning playlist that I put on while I do some writing or reflection or reading.
Adding 20-30 minutes of time to read a non-fiction book has helped me immeasurably. For starters, I would not have otherwise read these books as quickly as I have been. Nor would I have the depth of knowledge and specialised knowledge that I now have to take myself, my family and my business forward.
One thing that has become very clear to me through this process is my values of sustainability. That is thinking of the best way to “be human” a modern one at that. However without affecting the ecosystem that supports us through cleaning our air and water, supplying amazing nutrients through food, in a way that is detrimental.
My true goal in life is to be in a position to not only lead the way in eating the right foods and supporting the right companies through my purchases (which we have done even in the hardest of cash flow times) but through investing in companies and ideas that encourage the change that we need.
