Great Looking Effort, No Real AccomplishmentA Zen Thing . State of Mind . Training notes
Being busy does not always mean real work.
The object of all work is production or
accomplishment and to either of these ends
there must be Forethought, System, Planning,
Intelligence, and Honest Purpose, as well as
Perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing”
– Thomas Edison
Given the measure of accomplishments Thomas Edison made in his lifetime his words bear listening to, in every arena of your life. Many of us are simply robots going through the motions of life, busy like bees in a hive, yet what do we accomplish? We approach everything in this manner. We workout for 22 minutes because that is what someone told us, no forethought, no real goals. Take a moment today and think about what you want to accomplish, meaning figure out what your goals are. Look at how you are going to do this (system and planning). Make sure your system and plan make sense, not a pie-in-the-sky unintelligent plan but one that is realistic. Be honest with yourself and your abilities. It doesn’t take that long to go through these steps! Now all you need to add is perspiration!
