Better doesn’t matter when you are talking about something you never intend to finish anyway.
Better doesn’t matter in the real world, when you are striving or are using a yard stick against someone else’s progress.
Getting better is a personal pursuit based on demonstration of your own self-defined success.
- It’s setting and keeping your own standards vs. keeping up with the Jones’
- It’s being effective enough to complete – and then look for ways to improve things (getting things done – then better)
- It’s continually improving how you work en route to getting things done
- It’s caring about being better in every way you are and everything you do
- It’s being willing to practice to become masterful vs. just competent
- It’s going for personal fulfillment vs. just settling
When you undertake a path of “betterism” you say – “I am going to pay attention; I am going to make something really, really matter; I am going to pay attention to these specific things that really matter to me.”
So better doesn’t matter when you don’t care – but when you do, it’s everything.
Here are a few tips on how to get better at something that really matters to you personally:
Make it Sacred. When you see something as sacred – it raises your level of attention towards it. You focus on it. You are mindful of it. When you see your path towards being better as sacred – you walk with a purpose – and you are able to tell – right through your personal energy – if anything changes and you leave the path. What’s the Result? You get back on the path much faster.
See it as So. When you can hold a vision of what success looks like, sounds like, tastes like and feels like even before it is immediately before you, you can actually count the steps – to the realism of your vision.
Dreaming things as already done – helps you to feel the personal fulfillment now – and gives you the inspiration you need to pull you forward.
You see your future as a matter of practice. You are also going to be able to see every resource you will need on your path to getting things done. Every step you take – the more clarity you will make.
Even if you fail, failure is progress because you can effectively learn from failing – and make things better.
Simply Simplify. When you keep things to their simplest version, you expand your ability to hold focus on it.
When you keep things in manageable bite-size pieces – you can chew things more easily. Being overwhelmed isn’t a problem when you always have your next step right there in front of you.
What usually causes the problem is the illusion there is too much. Narrowing your focus to what is most meaningful now – helps you limit things so you can focus on important things and getting them better.
So, if you have already decided to make something better, yourself better, or the world better because it is meaningful for you – The world is ready for you and more than that it really needs you.
If you don’t care, don’t want more, and are satisfied the way things are that’s ok. You just haven’t heard the call yet. Please just support others who are ready to get things better.
