This time I write a bit about how to organize your finances and also your time. Everyone heard that thing about money<=>time, time is money, money is time... So have you ever organized your own finances and time by yourself to become your own boss and not build up something for someone else's business? no? Why not try to do so now, right? Well, or at least to have that crazy thought in your head for a while about becoming a master of your finances and time... Clarity and the ability to actually see things, - numbers, figures, order, transparency before your eyes isn't so big of a task but really great benefit. It keeps you away from bigger anxiety issues, and you fear less... if you lose your count and completely drop off your schedule, you can go back to those, when the time is right again... and count again, right all on paper, when you want to see, how you actually are doing.
You can count your finances for months, can be for a week too. It can be an everyday schedule or you can divide it into working days and days off. Anyway you prefer, it's working, if you really think about it and live it.
Another way to put this message through: it is not about doing it my way or anything but doing it in general, meaning - creating sheets about the most important areas in your lives about things that are essential for you also including things that are temporary as, say, to look at your progress in particular project or activity. The reason for doing it is this: you might evaluate things completely differently than the way they actually are and it's nobody's business to prove to you that you're wrong... You know guys, who can go for years in one and same place like stuck or circling. One of them knows, they go in stages (like a spiral) not circles (like 2D circles), others can't see that because all they know is to trust intuition... And to trust your guts (intuition) is awesome and needed, those are your natural instincts talking sense to you. But!! There is always this -but- :D I'm so sorry, so the life's "butt" is that intuition sometimes fails and only facts naked, cruel or not, just simple facts can lead you to a better solution than you used before and lead you out of your 2D circling problems... That's how so-called "blind spots" are crashed, of course!!! before crushing them, you have to notice them, they have to be revealed straight into your face and, when you start to see them, - that's already halfway done before getting free of them. So... please write those things: achievements, downfalls, spending, income, hours for work, hours to rest up, feelings you feel, places you want to go mentally, reminders, of who you are, doubts, insanities, confusion so on... please, write them.
Myself, I use office sheets for this but whatever is working for you, just keep on doing it :)
Ok and another area that needs to mention is exactly about mental/emotional development and building up the awareness of one's own self is journaling. Writing, recording audio, or even video - all possible formats are just as good. You can paint, you can dance, you can sculpt so on.. whatever works for you to get to actualize and understand, what is going on within you - that's the point of any form of journaling. To see yourself and to know you better, who you are, what you feel, what it looks like, and what you see around you. Believe me, you don't know most of the info you contain within... it's hard to know another person, so it's hard to know yourself too.... + think about what kind of capacity would you develop to understand another person, if you would really be well trained to do that for you. I think the benefits are enormous and still.... no one will get you as you can get yourself. ;) So all the best in the sexiest and most exciting journey you can ever find :) oh, and endless :D it can only end with yourself in the set, so even this crucial point is covered here.
P.s.: rereading and re-listening to your older journal entries is a super exercise too, you can also go to the public some of your creations and testimonies, this way you can get the opportunity to view them several times as well.
