#21: Effectiveness as Habit + Wu-Tang

***But I’m still depressed, and I ask what’s it worth?

Ready to give up so I seek the Old Earth

Who explained working hard may help you maintain

to learn to overcome the heartaches and pain***

 

Wu-Tang Clan   C.R.E.A.M.; Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) (1993)

 

We all know that the Wu is perpetually down with the realm of Eastern philosophy.  This Black Asiatic/Zen Brother approach may be too much for some but BPM says that we don’t need to be overly theoretical or metaphysical to find merit here.

This is more akin to the athletic notion of “runner’s high.”  When you run that extra mile, the endorphins kick in and all that pain in your thighs, lungs, feet and knee-caps go away.  There will be moments of doubt as you push through an agenda, but once you really get into high gear on pushing the difficulty of the process will subside.  In part it subsides because you actually are getting part of the agenda done, but in part it starts to disappear because your faculties are becoming attuned to the process.  You are getting in shape.

The more you negotiate, the longer you are able to negotiate.  The more you create sales presentations and business models, the faster and the easier it becomes to complete them.  The more you shoot for high year end sales numbers and achieve them the better and less difficult it seems.
