The problem with the 9-5 job is that, first of all, you are only maintaining. And you are doing the same thing every day - not only that, you are
working for someone else's will. But it can be worked around, and the advantage of the job is that it provides stability.
You could start projects in your free time, and if you have no free time, create it as I explain in a minute, and maybe use that free time to just
have free time and do something fun.
What I do, is I keep a notebook containing what I own in it so that I know. If I want something else, I write it on a buy list, and then I purchase
it. This is practiced goal setting - it is even a very practical and real type of manifesting - it is important to visualize the goal clearly -
writing it down helps - and then do it. I do this because I have a hard time relaxing if I don't know things are in order. It compensates for the fact
I have a hard time relaxing.
Where it gets a bit hazy are the things that I have to do on a monthly basis in order to maintain my lifestyle, for example, go grocery shopping,
clean, fill my car with gas - I have been isolating those to certain days of the month, I have a box for index cards, with each day of the month
having a little folder and I plop the relevant index cards (Clean Apartment) (Grocery Shop) in there.
The whole idea is to have this situation where I am living in an apartment, and I get to go out in the world on an adventure to collect things and
accomplish goals or maybe just relax and have fun using my own will, while not worried about other things, and then come back to the apartment with
whatever I have collected.
That means that when I leave to go on an adventure, I don't have a time limit - there are no such thing as time limits. IT also means that I can focus
on what I'm doing and not be rushed. But for me, I still get the structure of coming back to a place where I know things are in order, and a schedule
where I know my # is getting done.
The Chinese do a similar thing with their very successful businesses, although their approach outmatches mine. They make a major goal, and then don't
micromanage. Instead, they free up the time for years at a time to pursue what happens as it comes up. Think of how freeing this simple concept is!
In America, we are obsessed with so much that doesn't matter - and literally, it doesn't. Do you want to know how I determine what matters or not? You
take your end goal, and then you see how efficient your actions are in getting there. Also, how comprehensive is your end goal?
Let's say your end goal is have your kitchen stocked with food. Min-max that #. You can go grocery shopping once a month, you might even get better
deals buying in bulk - and think of all the time saved, especially if you are able to isolate other, and dare I say it, maybe all, of your other
more-than-likely ridiculously sporadic and inefficiently met desires - but don't worry about isolating all of them. Only a few might make a big
Think of the shopping. So you isolate that to one day a month. What do Americans usually do? Spend their whole day running errands, work, errand, have
to pick up this, have to pick up that. Well, analyze and isolate. A month is a good time frame because it will cover most routines.
The goal is to have GIGANTIC blocks of free time. Once you have a large block of free time, you can actually do something important with your life -
maybe be happy, maybe play, maybe do something major - most things that matter don't have time limits, but are instead the kind of thing where you
explore an issue thoroughly, so it is more spatial in nature, and then it comes to a natural end when it has been fully explored for the moment.
What I usually do with a project, even this post, is I go through with it in a quality manner so that I can leave it satisfactorily in the past and
move to the next thing. And it isn't even necessarily in the past, it has simply been posted on the net now.
Time can be a fabrication that enslaves us. However, in our society, and in this universe, it is rather necessary to do things to maintain one's life
- we don't live in a universe that prevents decay.
Choose the job you want, you can literally do anything you can envision - and that is, believe it or not, still limited - there are limits to what you
or I can visualize, and those limits are usually what we are capable of or not.
The 9-5 can work out, if you reorganize the energies in the right manner, and think of it similar to school (I like this) - when you come home, it is
over, and you get to play. So go back to your high school days, the greatest ones - where you go to work, come home, have friends over and are
In the best sense, you might end up living in moments, traveling from room to room or place to place and when you get there, having things or people
to interact with and the freedom to stay or leave as long as you wish.
I tried to articulate what I could for you while I was able to - I put a lot in there. Hopefully some of it helps.
