Weekly Wisdom 10/7-10/13

  1. "Being comfortable making up visions of success, before the methods are clear, is a phenomenal trait to strengthen. Being willing to have ideas, good or bad, and to express and capture all of them without judgment is critical for fully accessing creative intelligence." – Getting Things Done, pg. 271

  2. Often times, the reality comes first, then the beliefs follow. Ex. One gains 30 pounds over time. This person then tailors their beliefs in order to make the 30 pounds not as alarming: " I'm getting older and this happens.  I don't care about vanity anyway." Someone grows up poor: "Rich people are unethical and immoral. Money doesn't buy happiness" 

What beliefs of yours are a result of circumstance, and which ones are a result of conscious decision?
