Ditch time management, it’s all about priority management now

One of the things Danny and Craig are on a mission to do is to show people how to be successful, and at the same how to nurture their souls.

Everyone is looking for the right work-life balance. We have to learn how to mix business and life together so that we can achieve the best results.

You shouldn’t be looking into time management, it’s all about priority management. We have to understand what has the highest priority for us based on the consequences.

Happiness vs joy

German writer Goethe once said, “Things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least.” When you can control what you’re doing, your stress level also goes down.

There is no happy ending to an unhappy journey. Many people feel like they need to struggle and climb ladders. There is no need to suffer.

There is a distinction between the words “happiness” and “joy”. Happiness has a cause. It’s based upon some sort of external condition of achievement. Joy is very different. It’s a perky, fun state of consciousness. Joy is about enjoying every step in your journey.

Allowing our higher selves to guide us more

Craig realized that he is the one creating his own reality. He decided to take total personal responsibility.

As a monk, he also learned that he has a higher and a lower self. The higher self is intuitive, creative, joyous. The lower self, the little ego, is fearful, it sometimes shuts down, and has a lot of old school beliefs.

The third thing he learned is that whatever he chooses to put his attention on to, it’s going to increase. If he puts his mind on success and the specifics of achieving it, that’s going to grow.

The fourth thing he has learned is that mindfulness practices are actually tools to tap into his inner guidance from his higher self.

Taking baby steps

If we can improve the quality and the clarity of our thinking by one-tenth of one percent a day, in time we will experience massive personal growth.

Success happens by getting small wins, by changing small habits.
