“The aim of this book is for you to see that change and evolution are all about breaking the habit of being the “you.” Evolve Your Brain: Dr. Joe Dizpensa.
Dr. Dispenza is a scientist. In my opinion he falls a bit short in what he says. Yet his statement is highly important.
Liberty and transformation are all about getting the “you” out of the way. The “you in you” must become Christ Jesus, or the “you” in your resurrected and eternal state.The core of all the world’s ills is our obsession with beautifying, cosmetizing and keeping alive the corrupt and sin laden “you.” The utter effectiveness of Christianity when it’s carried out according to scriptures is that it replaces the “you.”
Effectiveness is doing the things that get you closer to your goals. Efficiency is performing a given task (whether important or not) in the most economical manner possible. Being efficient without regard for effectiveness is the default mode of the world. What you do is infinitely more important than how you do it. Efficiency will be useless unless it’s applied to the things that will cause you to attain to your goals. Tim Ferris
Or in my own words, being highly efficient without being effective is just a lot of empty hard work.
If your busyness is making you effective at the cost of efficiency, it’s the Holy Spirit.
If your busyness makes you efficient at the cost of effectiveness, it’s time to repay what you are doing.The devil will make you highly efficient and poorly effective and burn you out.
Being busy is a form of laziness- lazy thinking and indiscriminate action.
Being overwhelmed by much work is often as unproductive as doing nothing.
Lack of time is often a lack of priorities. Tim Ferris
The opposite to happiness is not sadness. The opposite to happiness is boredom Tim Ferris
Evil men are busy creating, designing and implementing while good men are busy at consuming what evil men create and implement for them.
Three questions I ask God for wisdom.
What can I commercialize that will bring God glory?
If this was my last day on earth, what would I impart to it? Then live every day like this.
What can I create and design on earth? In my case, it’s for God’s glory.
As Seth Godin says, the earth is filled with copy editors. Few design and create. Are you a creator or a copy editor? God is the former.
Strive in everything that I do to make it usable for others. Ninety percent of things on earth are non-usable.
Ex 31:3 and I fill him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all work,
Wisdom comes from God. Wisdom is taking accumulated knowledge which sits passively by and making it into something so usable that it can be commercialized. What can you commercialize in your life? EW Kenyon.
I don’t think the shortage of artists has much to do with the innate ability to create or initiate. I think it has to do with believing that it’s possible and acceptable for you to do it. We’ve only had these particular doors open wide for a decade or so, and most people have been brainwashed into believing that their job is to copyedit the world, not to design it. Seth Godin
