I am really enjoying this course and the topics that were covered.
For this day, my take away was to schedule a time for taking care of personal or business activities that aren't the most appealing I found was a good strategy to add to the scheduling time on your calendar.
I do have a question regarding scheduling. I rarely write schedules. Since my days are consistent, the ones I do put into my iPhone calendar, they are usually 3 weeks to 1 month out. What suggestions would people have?
With regards to toxic people and situations, I'm good at cutting ties if I need to.I had a situation where I had a friend who took advantage of my time. He was addicted to alcohol and more than 1/2 the time he would call me when he was drunk. No matter how much I try to cut ties,situations would always arise(all negative). He would call me multiple times in the day and night leaving messages on my voicemail. I would ignore these calls since they occurred past midnight. This relationship reached the "I will only do so much as a friend" line 3 of the 8 years I've known him. Finally a few years ago I saw an out and I took it since the other situation(s) I saw would not have been a clean break. Once this situation was over, the comparison I make would be of Atlus when he had the world on his shoulders and it got to the point if he had a choice he put the world off of his shoulders and no amount of shrugging would have helped. This situation felt like that to me.
For the places that range from Thrive, Neutral, and Survive, 90% of the time most places I am in survive mode. While in the course you have those who are extreme extroverts, I'm on the opposite end.
To start this section off, I'd like to say, I'm an adrenaline junkie, so most of the places I would thrive in would be such places as my local DropZone in Arizona, theme parks(I love roller coasters, and zip lines), the gym since I like to workout. Working with and juggling kettlebells are one of my all time favorites, although Skydiving is how I prefer to relax.
Phone, FB, concerts and comedy clubs, and restaurants
Things I do to refuel:
I enjoy reading books on psychology/Dreams, philosophy, and metaphysics.
I have an interesting story, Not too many people know this about me but I have a fascination with studying dreams. When I was 11 or 12 I decided to look up some sleep labs in AZ that caught my interest. found a lab that interested me I called the lab and asked if they do sleep studies since I was interested. I was rather disappointed when they said no though I'm I'm not sure if they were lying to me since sounded young.
Other times I can think of nothing. I heard a myth that guys can think about nothing more easily than the ladies, although I'm not sure how that can be tested. The only reference I can make with nothingness the book "Introduction to Metaphysics" by Martin Heidegger who covers 4 chapters of nothingness by asking this question, "Why is there essence rather than nothing". Heidegger supports this reference of nothingness or rather essence, through the use of linguistics. I found it a great read for those looking for a challenging read(well fun by my definition, although I obviously have a different definition of fun).
On to Day 3
