In Sanskrit the word for Non-Stealing is Asteya. The obvious is not taking what does not belong to us and we often think of our possessions but I would like to broaden that as we think of how we conduct ourselves in our business relationships. One of the areas that we need to be mindful of, because we cannot get or give it back, is time. A precious valuable asset. Examine and practice Asteya, the Non-Stealing, of Time and set this powerful Principle in motion.
We are building a solid foundation for our business…
Ahimsa, non-harming. Satya, truthfulness. Asteya, non-stealing.
I Hate Setting Goals…Again!
He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself is enlightened – Tao Te Ching
Does the idea of sitting down and writing out your goals for the next year, three years and five years make you want to scream?
I ask you this question 4 month ago, on February 28th. You know you SHOULD have done it, and here it is June 26th and it’s still not done.
Perhaps SHOULD is the problem. Trainer and motivational speaker Jack Canfield (Chicken Soup for the Soul series author) suggests that we write down our WANTS instead of our SHOULDS.
I like this concept. It’s easier to engage and I am now finding great joy in writing out my wants and desires for what I will create for myself over the next few years.
The SHOULDS? Turn them over to people better suited to handle them so you can free yourself to work on what is important to you. I have hired an experienced team to do all of the things I SHOULD NOT be doing because they are not “my thing” so I can put my energy toward what I WANT to do and that’s making money doing “my thing”.
I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how much fun this can be.
Get Ready. Get Set. Goals!
