14.24: The Key to Your Life
What's so special about 14 minutes and 24 seconds?
That's exactly 1% of a full day (24 hours).
And why would spending 14 minutes and 24 seconds each day perusing this site be the "Key To Your Life"?
Because it could ensure you never run out of seed corn for having a great life.
Because it could be that ever-strengthening and increasingly integrated foundation (removing the conflicts between your Now and Next, between your Oneself and Others), a foundation that supports and makes possible having everything else that you want.
Because it would consistently help ensure that you're using the energy of your fear to empower you, rather than stop you.
Because it could give you that fulcrum and a place to stand to move your universe.
Because it could be that one fundamental difference in your life that makes all the other differences.
Because it would become that "rising tide that lifts all ships," supporting and enlivening everything else you do in the other 99% of each day.
1% of each day would be a small price to pay to make your life infrastructure the best, would it not!?
A key infrastructure of your life is that interlocking network of knowledge, ideas, beliefs, and attitudes (that you have and has you) that guides your every choice and action, moment by moment, day by day, and for your life time. Creating, enhancing, and maintaining that all-important infrastructure is the key that supports everything else in your life.
Consider the Internet. The infrastructure of the Internet (which few of us are aware of directly) makes possible all the websites and services that you and I use and depend upon everyday, through our computers, phones, Kindle readers, or other devices. The robustness of the infrastructure of the Internet (or, as another example, the reliability of the electrical power systems that we all rely on) is quintessential to the amazing things we're able to do everyday.
Similarly, your hyperlinked mind, consisting of all the knowledge, ideas, beliefs, and attitudes that you hold, both consciously and unconsciously, is the support structure (the infrastructure) for everything else in your life.
Consider the validity of this claim:
Devote just 14 minutes and 24 seconds each day (that's only 1% of your day) to vet, peruse, explore, review, apply, and even critique AskDwightHow. If you do this, your life will continuously move toward, not only having more of what you want, but importantly, more delight in that hour-by-hour and day-by-day journey of it all. As long as you keep this in place, this will occur almost automatically. You are feeding your infrastructure.
What a small investment (1% of your day) for such a huge payout!
Do it with curiosity and playfulness; forget about "being efficient"
Think of each day's 14-15 minutes as break time. Allow yourself all the spontaneity and freedom you'd like inside of exploring AskDwightHow. While remaining curious to see what you can understand and what you might apply, let go of thinking of it as a serious task. Click here, click there...as your curiosity leads you. Use the search bar to see what links are suggested for a one-word query. Your-Next ensures that you spend the 1% each day on AskDwightHow. Your-Now is the leader in how that time is spent.
Start small: prove me wrong or prove me right
Try it for four weeks and notice what happens. Set a recurring alarm on your mobile to remind you to do it each day. Be wary of the "urgent" pushing out the important. Doing 14:24 is immensely important, but it won't naturally occur as urgent.
So many great links to start with...
Let me suggest a few. Let your curiosity and intuition guide you.
