Investing in money or friends is a false dichotomy – of course we should invest in both. But which gives more security?
“Outsight, much more than reflection, lets you reshape your image of what you can do and what is worth doing.” – Herminia Ibarra
Did today matter? Why or why not?
“If I have no issues at work and no issues in my personal life, that’s a perfect day. Whatever I do goes smoothly.”
“Consistency. I do this [dance] everyday. There is no more plan or steps, it’s just a feeling. I have to do it until I reach a feeling: ‘Yeah, I’m good.’ It’s a release, a deeply soulful activity to me. That’s a perfect day. Everything else is icing.”
When I’m not living my perfect day, I’ve learned to examine the context surrounding my behavior, and question the assumptions behind not only my perfect day but what conventional wisdom says is good, right and acceptable. Most of all I’ve learned to forgive myself.
“Having the feeling of achieving something. Then rewarding yourself.”
“I’m a project based person but I need a clean process… My perfect day has to be different everyday. It has to have flexibility to support my interests and necessities at the time… Having a process allows me to introduce variety and spontaneity in a much more specific and clear way and allows me to assess it.”
“To create something is to add to the world” and “I’m the happiest when I’m connecting with people who elevate my consciousness and make me feel connected and with purpose.”
“I think there would be some drugs involved to be honest… and some elements of hedonism and a lot of music. I think I would enjoy a mix of those 3 things.”
