"How the Internet is like a Small Town"
...Twitter is coffee shop of the world... the whole world can now know about the good or bad thing you did just like it's always happened at the small town coffee shop.
Its easier for me to talk like the self discipline I have comes from my time in the Marine Corps... really it doesn't. I have more pride and focus in trying to have self-discipline because of the Marine Corps, but it comes from the way I was raised.
It comes from my parents making me except personal responsibility for the mistakes and dumb shit I did as a kid.
I think about it in my head quite a bit... "What do I need to be better at?"
That's the biggest question that needs to be answered before one can even start to improve their situation.
I suck at alot of things...
I am inherently lazy... I really enjoy just sitting and talking to people. I used to try and fight it, I still need to fight it some more. But I also realized... maybe I should just try to get some what better, but also maximize this trait and see if I could actually help people enough that they would pay me if I "sit around and talk with them" about the right things and produce a set of results. It worked... it worked real well.
Here's the point: everyday I discuss with the voice in my head things that I want to change about me and my status quo... then I use the logic behind the serenity prayer.
Fix what I can muster the self discipline to fix...
Don't stress the stuff I cant fix right now...
Constantly assess which one of the 2 the shit that bugs me in my life fall into.
The Key Elements:
1. Knowing/admitting that I suck at some things and that's why my life isn't exactly how I want it.
2. Knowing/admitting it's gonna take my whole lifetime of trying to be a better me, I will never be done.
3. Being ok with number 2... but continuing to not be ok with number 1
This stuff seems so much more interesting in my brain...
