Day 30 – Underground Daoist Wizard

There is a Zen proverb: “Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.”

Follow your heart but take your brain along —ALFRED ADLER

What Matters Most?

As you analyze your actions, know it is the moment-to-moment mindset that matters most. During the workday, no matter what you are doing, look at each action you take and ask yourself if it is contributing to making more and working less. The day you get it and switch your focus to the blow-by-blow mechanics while leaving aside theory and wishful thinking, freedom and wealth will begin to materialize. You’ve attained the systems mindset.

In a real business, the owner is not the one physically generating the product or service. This can be a bitter pill to swallow, but it is difficult to dispute that if you are the one creating and/or delivering the actual product or service, you’re working a job. You own a job, not a business.
