“It is the same with people as it is with riding a bike. Only when moving can one comfortably maintain one’s balance." ~Albert Einstein

"Set peace of mind as your highest goal and organize your life around it.” ~Brian Tracy

Last week we talked about the timeless concept of wisdom. Today, on this in-between-seasons Mind Bullet Monday episode, we continue our exploration of values with a foray into balance.

Like wisdom, balance is a value of utmost importance. It's critical to note that balance is not a static state, but rather a continuous process. 

Think about a tightrope walker. At any one moment in time, if you took a snapshot the walker would appear off balance, tenuous, leaning this way and that. Balance is maintained and regained with slight adjustments.

It's the same with our lives. There are times we feel off-balance, depressed, angry, or unsettled. Regaining our equilibrium is a dynamic process, making slight adjustments here and there to set us right again. It's OK to find yourself off balance at times. Simply be aware that it's time to make an adjustment and regain your equilibrium.

Think of an off-balance mental attitude. For example, we sometimes get so caught up in a political position that we can no longer see or appreciate the other side. This is unhealthy. Balance and peace of mind come from being able to appreciate both sides of an argument without judgement.

Our mental and physical balance, our health, is in a state constant oscillation that brings us to equilibrium and peace —if we can direct it properly.

Listen in for more on the equalizing force of balance, how it leads to peace of mind and unity, and how habit and PARR come into play to create the adjustments and fluidity of true equilibrium.

Enjoy the episode!

“Wisdom is equal measure experience plus reflection." ~Aristotle

"In seeking wisdom, the first step is silence; the second, listening; the third, remembering; the fourth, practicing; the fifth, teaching others.” ~Solomon Ibn Gabirol

Philosophers, including the Stoics, are among the few to really ponder wisdom, which makes sense if you think about the true meaning of the word "philosophy"— love of wisdom.

A few seasons back we discussed the importance of having a philosophy. The value of wisdom is tightly integrated to your own personal philosophy. 

Wisdom is unique in its timelessness. As a principle it is unchanging, unwavering. Think of the Golden Rule: Treat others as you want to be treated. It was true thousands of years ago and it's true today. Think of patience and kindness. They are always going to be representative of maturity and character.

Knowledge, on the other hand, is ever-changing. We learned there were nine planets in our solar system, but then Pluto got demoted. Knowledge shifts, and it's less important to our personal philosophy when making our way through life.

Wisdom helps us navigate life, making it invaluable. 

Listen in for more on tuning into true wisdom to create guideposts in our lives, and how to phase out the "knowledge noise" fighting for space in our consciousness.

Enjoy the episode!

There are two things you should never worry about. Those things you can control and those things you can't control."

According to the National Institute of Health: “Belief in one's ability to exert control over the environment and to produce desired results is essential for an individual's well-being. It has been repeatedly argued that the perception of control is not only desirable, but it is likely a psychological and biological necessity."

Having some control over our surroundings is essential to our well being! This begs the question, what do I control? Better yet, what do I think I control? In a world full of people and situations we can't control, where should I put my time, attention and energy? 

Too many of us waste a great deal of energy on politics, sports, and our opinions. We carry these judgements, opinions and emotions from our past and they greatly weigh us down.

When we direct our energy toward those things we can control — our health, thoughts, attitude, behavior, we can actually become "enlightened" — lessening our burdens, becoming lighter. 

If control drives our happiness and our sense of well being is based on our sense of control, why not direct that energy to those things we can influence like our own behavior? 

Listen in for more on control as it relates to happiness, and how tracking your habits on your goal journey brings back a sense of control and leads to self-efficacy.

Enjoy the episode!

“Done is better than perfect.” 

"If we commit ourselves to the successful completion of a task, then we personify excellence." - Halik

"Whatever it takes to finish things, finish. You will learn more from a glorious failure than you ever will from something you never finished." -Neil Gaiman

Getting started on your goal achievement journey is the crucial first step, one we recently covered. However, today's topic is all about Finishing!

If starting is the most important step (and it is), finishing is a very, very close second. Often we find fear-based excuses are what keep us from both, starting and finishing.

Consider energy and its two major forms: kinetic and potential. It's the completion of your goal which shifts its energy state from the realm of potential energy to kinetic energy. Think about an amazing book, until it is actually finished, it is only potential energy and once it is published it becomes kinetic and begins to set the world on fire!

Using the acronym S.T.A.R.T. (Simple Today Actions Repeated and Tracked) is the beginning to shifting the potential energy of your new goal into kinetic energy as it gets closer and closer to completion, this is what we call momentum.

Listen in for more on the explosive energy that accompanies finishing an endeavor, and why "done" is better than "perfect."

Enjoy the episode!

“What gets measured gets improved.”  ~Peter Drucker

When it comes to achieving your goals, the importance of tracking cannot be stressed enough. (Check out this Season 2 episode, Why Tracking Is Important.)

To put it simply, the people who track are serious about goal achievement. So, if you're not tracking, you just do not want it badly enough!

Tracking reinforces your intention. When you track, you are demonstrating and reaffirming your intention about what it is you really want. Think about our good buddy Ben Franklin, who tracked his habits to develop his desired 13 virtues.

Fast forward to today, we have the example of the Oscar-winning documentary Free Solo, where rock climber Alex Honnold attempts to conquer the first free solo climb of El Capitan's 900-meter vertical rock face at Yosemite. Guess what Alex did during his preparation? Via journaling, he tracked his training and progress, reinforcing his intention.

Another example: The author and speaker Jack Daly (a guest on this podcast) tracks everything about his goal-setting and achievement.

It's a theme you'll begin to notice over and over with successful goal achievers. 

Listen in for more on the powerful importance of tracking in goal achievement and how it focuses our energy and intention on the big prize -- and how the Habit Factor methodology makes it impossible to fail.

Enjoy the episode!
