11am meditations

To truly have 100% focus you need to take care of or eliminate if possible, the distractions.

What is your underlying fear that you are not aware of that prevents you from taking action?

- experience with coasters.com.au > great product > great service > good seo yet no substantial sales? what is missing? marketing, sales tatics, business/marketing relationships with the right people

- no sales yet of new servicing offering - need to review pricing, try ozbargain

Criterias for successful collaborations?

What do they have at stake?

If they can't get it done, what have they got to lose? their livelihood? children, family, house, food
What environment are they working under?
Have they undergone hardship and understand the true nature of having nothing?
What are you learning from them, is there a pushback on your efforts?

what do you care about?

notes to thyself...
So I got upset about something this morning, and as a result felt agitated, had a rush of emotions and continued onwards with my 11am meditations.

Increasely distracted by the influx of information data - I have been slightly addicted to the need for constant data feed. Which results in a lot of knowledge floating around in my mind. Which in turns contributes to decision paralysis, inaction and procrastination.

Having too much to think about is a bad thing, as business requires quick instincts from a constantly faster changing environment.

I care about what other people think about me, my efforts sometimes a bit too much. I care about making things work, creating beautiful things that I would happily look back with a smile.

I care about the suffering that goes on around the world, my social network, my family.

Change the story, change the emotions.
  1. Awareness
  2. Acceptance or Action
  3. Change
