Comparison is the thief of joy

expectations gap and unhappiness
Facebook insidiously leaves us unhappy as we view everyone’s “Life Highlights Reel”.

 

expectations gap and unhappiness
Never let your memories be bigger than your dreams. Right?

 

expectations gap and unhappiness
Person B is always happier, statistically through research.

The culprit for unhappiness…

 

Comparison is the thief of joy.

Comparing what we want (expect) to happen and what actually happens.

Comparing what happens to others (the good stuff) to what happens to us.

Comparing our past memories of our world to the world we see today with all our adult responsibilities.

What does being brave mean if we reserve it only for special occasions?

This would make me ill. And i’m so grateful for this fact.

Surreal. Comes with the territory. Pretty crazy for an introvert.

 

What does being brave mean if we reserve it only for special occasions? Or it’s reserved until we are forced to be brave? What then?

One Question A Day?

Are your toughest work days bearable?

Sweat the details before you need to, and maybe you won’t have to. Lower left…free cancellation. Book months in advance and if plans change, no worries about cost obligations. Wait too long to book, and choices and prices change unfavorably.

 

Are your toughest work days bearable?

What if they (consistently) were?

Travel is picking up and part of my role as an Army of One is to book things in the most effective (time) and efficient (cost) way possible. Stayed up past normal bedtime to be caught up through October.

Freedom and joy lies on the other side of decisiveness

plugin minimalist
Today. Had only three plugins to start with. Also deactivated the Genesis Theme and Child Theme on all 5 blogs.

Today. All-In-One-SEO-Pack has 30 million downloads. i trust it to be around for a long time.

 

This is a boring post (as are many) if you aren’t able to read between the lines and understand the unspoken insights embedded in my writing style.

The decision to delete all but one WordPress plugin was finalized while i’ve been writing – this Saturday morning, December 10, 2016.

Also removed commenting on posts. Why? i’m reachable other public ways and reply within 24 hours.

Between texts, emails, phone calls, and meetings, i do not need other additional platforms to check.

By the way, plugins are the easiest route in for hackers to attack your website. Comments and social proof isn’t worth it to me. If i know you, you know you have easy access to me, but not on my blogs.

Seems fair.

Why?

Because i decided it’s fair.

That decision is good enough.

Return on trust

Seven book series
Caught this on Twitter yesterday…i use #7in1 to tag all my Disney Book Writing locations. i’m not the only one who writes prolifically, a 7-book series (by 7 authors?).

 

Show up.

Be honest.

Be real.

Be helpful.

Do what you say you’re going to do.

And don’t quit when you feel like quitting.

Ps. You’ll often feel like quitting (writing) until you eventually get to the point where not writing is never an option.

If there ever was a common man’s nirvana, it may be writing like you mean it, like it matters, like someone will benefit because you have the guts to ship, day after day after day.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
