VII: Personal Rituals

Posted by Danny Khaos on

I talk a lot about going absolutely balls-to-the-wall here, but I don't talk a lot about slowing down. Truthfully, I rarely have time to truly slow down. Doing everything that I do requires most of my time to keep it all together, avoid mistakes, and solve the problems when I eventually do make a mistake. Between my day job, The Apocalypse Order, and my familial obligations, there's not much left to just take time off unless I'm stealing it from one of my efforts. Of course, that doesn't mean that I never take time for myself.   Hit Reset At...

VI. Get Up and Fucking Fight For It

Posted by Danny Khaos on

We've all heard about it, but we never seem to have it when we need. Some days, we'll be super motivated and we'll actually finish all of the things we need to get done. Some days, we have none of it, and we're lucky we made it out of bed to get to work. "Adulting, huh?" we say, as if doing the shit we need to do is somehow below us.   "I'll finish the cleaning if I can get motivated!"   "I don't see how you do it. I know I need to get in shape, but I just...

V. Mind Your Mind

Posted by Danny Khaos on

Mind Your Mind

Every decision is a new opportunity to become a better person

Every wasted second is a second you can never get back

Every wasted ounce of effort is a goal left unattained

Take your time - live consciously - live deliberately

Make every decision with purpose, every purchase with thought

You can't take things with you to the grave,

But,

You can leave a lasting legacy on this world

And none of them will come from arguments

Or your possessions

They will come for your actions and your impact

Mind - Your - Mind

Posted by Danny Khaos on

Supremacy of Self is an attribute one should cultivate, but only few, if any, will ever perfect. This supremacy allows you to maintain control of yourself in high-stress situations, whether you're lifting heavier, running wild through the forest, or faced with a life-or-death challenge. Building toward Supremacy of Self makes it easier to attain your goals, by keeping you on track, no matter what else may be happening around you. In the storm that is your life, you will learn to become the eye of the tempest.

III : Set Goals - Crush Them

Posted by Danny Khaos on

There are going to be days you don't want to do the things you've laid out for yourself. Right now, as I'm writing, I don't want to be writing. I stayed up too late last night and I hardly slept. I over-celebrated my extremely successful week. This has left me tired, unmotivated, and unwilling to work, much less work out--but I'm going to do it anyway. I'm going to scale back my heavy lifting for the day because I am exhausted, and I'll only succeed in hurting myself if I push myself in the condition I'm in, but I will do the work I committed to before I made a series of stupid decisions last night.
