A Personal Code

Posted on Feb 20, 2020 by in Structure, Inspiration

Mr. Joyner, developer of Simpleology, in his “The Greatness Awakening,” (I tried to get you a link to this, but couldn't find it) at day ten assigns my mission as:

  1. Write your code. Here's mine:
    1. Be the kind of person who leaves a profit.
    2. Always be learning.
    3. Always be moving forward.
    4. Take care of people.
    5. Anything that takes you off your path is actually taking you backwards.
  2. Print it out
  3. Put it on a wall where you will see it every day
  4. Memorize it
  5. Repeat it to yourself once a day before bed

I liked this assignment; so I share this also with you.

I got a bit stupid yesterday, and then got smart. I did contact someone, and that turned into a conversation, which I definitely call a win. I also made for some outside time by way of a walk with my son. I did workout, but then did got sidetracked, in one good way, and in one bad, and got to the end of my day not having completed my core activity, which is making contact with three people. So I wasn't going to go to bed without that, and got it done, which also felt good. As to the assignment, I realize it actually is present for me in the mornings, and I am not feeling the need to comment as completely as I have the last three days, but I'll work into a form that works:

  1. Smile! ✓
  2. Breathe life into Your Body. ✓
  3. Think of three things for which I am grateful.
    1. that I can still feel my toes
    2. that I can walk
    3. that I still dream
  4. Think of three things I am looking forward to.
    1. More outside time.
    2. Writing.
    3. Scheduling certain parts of my life.
  5. List three things I will do today to make my life even better.
    1. The pitch that's been running in my head, but occurs as a huge effort.
    2. Contact three people.
    3. Ironing: it still didn't get done, but I think I'll combine it with my soap opera, one of yesterday's distractions, which wasn't necessarily accompanied by fruitful activity yesterday.
  6. Then mark it off on the calendar. ✘ Just for clarity, this is obviously not that I've finished it all, just that I've done the damned planning exercise, and if I've done that, at least some of the other parts follow.

Thanks again to Mark Joyner's The Little Calendar that Brainwashes You: It might be enough for you. For me, it resides in a bigger context. I suppose it depends where you find yourself.

Training Your Spouse: Saving Your Marriage

There is something fundamental missing in the foundation of many relationships, and it is our unwillingness to go there that leads to the unnecessary termination of a lot of marriages, and a lot of heart ache.

It's like this.
