Self-Coach Sunday 68: Do Or Do Not

Trying is a waste of time. As Yoda said, “Do or do not.  There is no try.” Have you ever tried to pick up a pencil? Here is an exercise: place a pencil in front of you. Now TRY to pick it up. Do you have it in your hand? If so, you have failed the exercise. The instructions were to TRY, but you successfully picked up the pencil. You did it. You didn’t try. Trying implies that it isn’t done. So either do or do not.

I challenge you to change your language. Instead of try, do. Just remember, doing can have two outcomes: it will work or it won’t. If it works, great! If it doesn’t, discover what went wrong.

Trying is a waste of energy and goes against the natural flow of life. Shift your perspective and do or do not.

Self-Coach Sunday 60: Get Some Perspective

Still trying to find your path in life? You may need to take a retreat from your current life and get a broader perspective. Go outside of yourself to see what really fills you up.

Here are some ways to take a retreat:

  1. Pack your bags and head to a B-n-B or cabin in the woods
  2. House sit for a friend
  3. Get out of the house – go to a cafe, restaurant, park, library, etc.
  4. Go on a yoga/spa retreat or to a ranch
  5. Go to a monastery or abbey

Try to go away or at least leave your house during the day for at least three days, if you can. Even one day can make a difference. Be sure to pack a  journal to record your thoughts. Keep it simple and don’t pack too much. During this time, get creative and find some way to get perspective on your life.
