When I’m focused, I’m super focused. The amount and quality of work is great. It’s a trait I could really utilize more often. I gave myself a tough schedule for the upcoming weeks. I want to push hard and achieve something,  amaze myself to no possible doubt. Give everything 110%, stay focused. Awesomeness is on its way.




Glorious: possessing or deserving praise, honor, or distinction extended by common consent; synonyms of magnificent, distinguished, honored, outstanding.

Glorious is not a feeling that come all too often in my generation. Are we complainers or are we just over-achievers? Are we not there for common consent or are the expectations set too high? Are we just being millennials or the baby boomers don’t understand? Of course curing a disease or being the next Steve Jobs deserves praise and recognition, but that’s not going to be the majority of us. Feeling good should not be that hard. Find it.

Something that really stings: knowing I could have done better but didn’t, especially when I was just distracted or trying to get it done. 

So the goal I have been working on for last month or so: make that few minutes of interaction with the patient my centre of universe. It’s all I care about, it’s all I have to be accountable for, it’s where all my energy goes. 

I’m sure today’s prompt sting can be interpreted in so many other ways:

Get it done.

Still getting used to going back to work after having 1 week off, the energy and mental resources is just not there at the end of the day to blog. Given it doesn’t take long, I should just do it to get it off my mind, and perhaps start the flow to start doing actual productive things. GTD #1, if the task takes less than 5 minutes, just get it done and not add it to the to do list.

Prompts I wanted to write a post and put off forever, but luckily related so I can just bunch it all together to now: Elevate (Sept 5), Anticipate (Sept 6), Finite (Sept 7), and Overcome (Sept 9).

We have a finite window of opportunity to make a difference or get something done on a certain thing before it just takes its own course. Despite understanding the theory and experiencing the consequence on multiple occasions, I am still the worse for this as I continue to continuously procrastinate on the important things. Prime example would be trying to focus on getting school done, when work is less crazy, when I have more time, when I work less. When and ifs are obviously not happening, so it’s time to make it happen. I need to anticipate the situations better, prepare myself to elevate above the circumstances, and overcome the obstacles. Otherwise, nothing will ever get done.

So short tasks, just get it done. Long tasks, find a way, do it, and get it done.


A Chinese quote from a Taiwanese marathon runner that recently stuck in my head: 心沒有放棄,身體就會跟隨 (if your heart hasn’t given up, your body will naturally follow). 

Just don’t give up and you’ll keep going. Continue is that easy.
