Musings Episode 82: Options…

Hope everyone’s week is off to a great start. I remember talking to someone about options that a person has in every aspect of their life a while back…which pretty much inspired this week’s episodic musing. Let’s get started.

Musings Episode 82: Options

We Must Dare To Think Unthinkable Thoughts We Must Learn To Explore All The Options And Possibilities That Confront Us In A Complex And Rapidly Changing World J William Fulbright, Rego's Life, J William Fulbright quotes, Rego's Life quotes, J William Fulbright, Musings Episode 82 Options, Rego's Life, Musings Episode 82 Options Rego's Life, Rego's Life Musings Episode 82 Options, Options, life options, options quotes, how to assess your options, remember you have options, life choices, lifestyle, know you have options

I’d say in today’s time we live in a world of choice – lots of it. Largely on a consumer level, but on other levels too. There’s so many different forms of education, career choices, leisure time options, and ways of getting out and socialising that you’ll have people say the amount of options is overwhelming.

I’d say that’s bull.

Then, there are some who may feel like they don’t have any options.

That’s also bull.

True, there are an abundance of options out there, but if you’ve got focus, the options available hardly seem overwhelming and if anything, you can easily filter out the fluff.

When you think about it, the amount of options you have can actually help you have a better understanding of what it is you want out of life, in all aspects of life. Even feeling like you have no options at some point in life can force you to realise the options you do have, if you stay calm and think.

This is where focus comes in. The main thing is to use that focus to stay on track with whatever it is you want to accomplish.

Filtering is easy, but staying on track can sometimes be tricky – largely because it relies on consistency. As an entrepreneurial minded person I can attest to this.

I could have a number of ideas pop up in my head a week that seem like great business ideas. Where it gets tricky is staying consistent – sometimes it’s tempting to move on all of them at one time rather than planning things out methodically, or knocking out one at a time.

Thinking of so many ideas can open you up to so many options, even outside the entrepreneurial realm.

And having options means having access to different tools that can help you move any part of your life forward.

Knowledge creates options, and options are kind of like guide books that teach you which way you can use the tools you’ve uncovered through assessing your options.

The higher the level of people's perceived self-efficacy the wider the range of career options they seriously consider the greater their interest in them and the better they prepare themselves educationally for the occupational pursuits they choose Albert Bandura, Rego's Life, Albert Bandura quotes, Rego's Life quotes, Albert Bandura, Albert Bandura Options, Musings Episode 82 Options, Rego's Life, Musings Episode 82 Options Rego's Life, Rego's Life Musings Episode 82 Options, Options, life options, options quotes, how to assess your options, remember you have options, life choices, lifestyle, know you have options

If you’re from my generation, maybe you were taught that you could be anything when you were younger – and maybe you were taught to pick a safe career option as you got older.

This was always a confusing trend of thought to me. You’re told you can be anything (including Spider-Man) when you’re younger – but as you get older, family/society tells you to “think about your future” and “pick a safe career choice”? Something like a lawyer, doctor, etc?

Forget wanting to be top athlete or pro skateboarder, and opt for a nice, quiet office job?

While I know the above “safe” options can in theory of course be smart (and sometimes recession proof), it’s the line of thinking that’s a contradiction.

I mean I can see where (most) parents are coming from – they want their kids to have stability, not lack for anything, and a financially stress-free life so they can actually enjoy the years that pass by.

But I think always opting for the safe option can be self-sabotaging.

This is where I think a hybrid approach works best.

There’s some partial truth that there are obvious benefits to choosing a “safe” career – but only if you know what type of benefits you’re talking about.

I think if a person feels more comfortable going with a safe option – with anything in life – it’s better to only use it as a tool to get where you really want to go – to enable you to do what you really want to do.

I tell people Do what you love but it can also be hard to know what you love early on But when you think about it and you describe the options which one gets you a little more excited Brad D Smith, Rego's Life, Brad D Smith quotes, Rego's Life quotes, Brad D Smith, Brad D Smith options, Musings Episode 82 Options, Rego's Life, Musings Episode 82 Options Rego's Life, Rego's Life Musings Episode 82 Options, Options, life options, options quotes, how to assess your options, remember you have options, life choices, lifestyle, know you have options

In the context of business, picking a safe option really just means picking an option that gives you a steady source of cash flow over the required length of time it’s needed.

But it’s what you do with that cash flow that matters.

One thing I’ve learnt about being an entrepreneur – if you want to move anything forward, even outside of business, most of the time it takes cash flow, and time.

This can be with a hobby, travelling, a relationship, anything.

I really don’t get why people try and separate money from the equation when it comes to a lot of things they do in life.

If you want to learn how to play guitar, you’ve gotta first buy the guitar.

If you want to pursue a relationship, you’ve still gotta have the cash to meet up with the person – whether you’re driving or using public transportation. Even if you’re walking, if you wanna go and grab a bite (or make a bite to eat) it still takes cash.

Hell, even if you want to get in better shape you’ve gotta have the cash to eat properly.

There’s an interesting quote I’m fond of…

Money is only a vehicle that provides you with options and I say there's only one thing that money can't buy poverty Jerry Doyle, Rego's Life, Jerry Doyle quotes, Rego's Life quotes, Jerry Doyle, Musings Episode 82 Options, Rego's Life, Musings Episode 82 Options Rego's Life, Rego's Life Musings Episode 82 Options, Options, life options, options quotes, how to assess your options, remember you have options, life choices, lifestyle, know you have options, Jerry Doyle options

Now this blog post isn’t to talk about money – but I can say that money, like knowledge, can give you more options.

And I can say that it’s important to realise that everyone, and I do mean everyone, has options.

The main thing is, you’ve got to pick what options are right for YOU.

Only you.

Nobody else can or should feel like they can dictate to you what your options are. It’s your life, you’ve got to live it, and you’ve got to deal with the results that the options you pick give you.

At the end of the day, you’ve got to do what feels right for you.

Choose your options wisely. Choose how to use your tools wisely.

Just for fun I’m gonna leave you with one of my favourite songs this year:

As always…

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 81: Consistency…

Hope everyone’s week is off to a good start. Lately I’ve been working towards adding some new daily habits into my life, and that made me think about how important consistency is when trying out something new that you want to get yourself used to doing on a, well, consistent basis.

Then I thought about this post. Let’s get started.

Musings Episode 81: Consistency…

Success isn't always about greatness It's about consistency Consistent hard work leads to success Greatness will come Dwayne Johnson, Rego's Life quotes, Dwayne Johnson quotes, Dwayne Johnson, Consistency quotes, quotes, Musings Episode 81 Consistency, Rego's Life Musings Episode 81 Consistency, Musings Episode 81 Consistency Rego's Life, Rego's Life, Consistency, Consistent, How to be consistent, how to stay consistent, how to develop consistency, consistency in work, how to be consistent in life, life goals, milestones, consistency and goals, goals take consistency, Episodic Musings, Episodic Musings Rego's Life, Rego's Life Episodic Musings, Episodic Musings of a Quintessential Entrepreneur, Rego's Life Episodic Musings of a Quintessential Entrepreneur, Episodic Musings of a Quintessential Entrepreneur Rego's Life

So the topic of consistency has been bouncing around in my head a lot since the last musing. I’m a big fan of the website T-Nation, and while other people may bash them about their supplement prices, they don’t force you to buy them (so shuddup), and they’ve got some damn fine reading material.

One particular article talked about progress in workouts, and how the key lies in consistency. It takes about 21 days of daily, consistent completion of a workout, for the brain to “programme” itself into forming a habit – 21 days – the same amount of time it takes for you to visibly see progress with your physique when you workout and eat right.

The key is also in the timing – doing it at roughly the same time everyday…the same way you would with waking up, eating, or going to bed.

But this whole 21 day concept doesn’t just stop at working out, it applies to all aspects of life.

I remember a year or so back I wanted to improve different aspects of my memory – so I tried memory games for 21 days. While the first week was a bit of a struggle (making myself sit down and take out the time just sit still and do something which seemed so simple), after three weeks I had a noticeable difference in memory improvement (and I already had a sharp mind before that, mind you).

Consistency is one ingredient of several that make up the whole recipe of moving in the direction that you want.

One thing guys have to remember is consistency You can't make up for three years of eating poorly in just one workout Apolo Ohno, Rego's Life quotes, Apolo Ohno quotes, Apolo Ohno, Consistency quotes, quotes, Musings Episode 81 Consistency, Rego's Life Musings Episode 81 Consistency, Musings Episode 81 Consistency Rego's Life, Rego's Life, Consistency, Consistent, How to be consistent, how to stay consistent, how to develop consistency, consistency in work, how to be consistent in life, life goals, milestones, consistency and goals, goals take consistency, Episodic Musings, Episodic Musings Rego's Life, Rego's Life Episodic Musings, Episodic Musings of a Quintessential Entrepreneur, Rego's Life Episodic Musings of a Quintessential Entrepreneur, Episodic Musings of a Quintessential Entrepreneur Rego's Life

Like I mentioned in my last episodic musing, there are a range of other ingredients involved – standards, drive, quality relationships, comfort zones – that you have to take into account when planning and executing whatever it is you want to accomplish.

But in order to get the recipe’s results right, you’ve got to make sure you add in consistency bit by bit – it’s got to be part of each phase of the process.

You can have high standards, have the drive to achieve those standards, take your confidence from your comfort zone and help yourself get ready to progress towards something better, but if you don’t stay consistent – a milestone that you may want to achieve in a year, a month, a week – can easily turn into 3 years, 3 months, 3 weeks.

It’s like learning a language – there are language courses out there that you can learn fluency in any given language to an intermediate level in 2-3 weeks; considering it takes about 1000 words to reach fluency, in theory this doesn’t sound all too difficult – and it isn’t.

If you studied everyday, for 3 weeks, you could reach this.

But if you studied on and off, took a day off here, another one there, and maybe only ended up studying once or twice a week, it’d take you significantly longer. You may even have to revise the stuff you learnt the week prior just because you’re not using it on a frequent enough basis to retain it.

This is why consistency is so important.

When you look at people who are successful you will find that they aren't the people who are motivated but have consistency in their motivation Arsene Wenger, Rego's Life quotes, Arsene Wenger quotes, Arsene Wenger, Consistency quotes, quotes, Musings Episode 81 Consistency, Rego's Life Musings Episode 81 Consistency, Musings Episode 81 Consistency Rego's Life, Rego's Life, Consistency, Consistent, How to be consistent, how to stay consistent, how to develop consistency, consistency in work, how to be consistent in life, life goals, milestones, consistency and goals, goals take consistency, Episodic Musings, Episodic Musings Rego's Life, Rego's Life Episodic Musings, Episodic Musings of a Quintessential Entrepreneur, Rego's Life Episodic Musings of a Quintessential Entrepreneur, Episodic Musings of a Quintessential Entrepreneur Rego's Life

It’s what makes all the difference in your workouts, your diet, your education, your work, your business, everything.

Without consistency, while you may get things done eventually, you won’t necessairily get them done in the time that you want, or need.

You’ve also gotta factor in other people – which is why quality relationships are important – when thinking about accomplishing what you want to get done.

You can have the drive, the standards, the consistency – but you’ve got to be around and connect with people who won’t throw a wrench in the gears, so to speak.

If what you’re trying to accomplish involves cooperation with other people, you’ve got to make sure you’re working with cooperative people.

People who think that there’s not enough to go around, that you’re competition, that you may end up acquiring more than them (not that it would matter – we’ve all got our own path), cane be the absolute bane of consistency if they are a critical component in helping you move things forward.

You’ve gotta be around good people.

It’s amazing how there are a lot of factors involved here – a lot of little factors that make up the big picture.

Standards, drive, comfort zones, discipline, competition, cooperation, consistency – you could master one but one single factor wouldn’t be the only thing to pull you through, to get things done.

You’ve got to work at each one individually, bit by bit.

I know sometimes that can seem pretty annoying or cumbersome – but it’s about maintaining a balance.

The same way it’s wise for a person to avoid muscle imbalances by making sure they train all their muscles week to week, the same way it’s wise to maintain a balance approach when it comes to accomplishing what you’ve set out to do.

The hardest thing about skateboarding is consistency The slightest flick of your foot or gust of wind can send your board flying so it's really anybody's game out there Shaun White, Rego's Life quotes, Shaun White quotes, Consistency quotes, quotes, Musings Episode 81 Consistency, Rego's Life Musings Episode 81 Consistency, Musings Episode 81 Consistency Rego's Life, Rego's Life, Consistency, Consistent, How to be consistent, how to stay consistent, how to develop consistency, consistency in work, how to be consistent in life, life goals, milestones, consistency and goals, goals take consistency, Episodic Musings, Episodic Musings Rego's Life, Rego's Life Episodic Musings, Episodic Musings of a Quintessential Entrepreneur, Rego's Life Episodic Musings of a Quintessential Entrepreneur, Episodic Musings of a Quintessential Entrepreneur Rego's Life

You’ve got to work on each factor individually, bit by bit.

But most importantly, you’ve got to remember that consistency is what keeps it all together.

It’s what turns those incrimental, small pieces of the puzzle, into the big picture.

Consistency is crucial.

Consistency is key.

As always…

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 78: Drive…

Hope everyone’s having a great week. I know, I know, I missed For The Weekenders last week. I’ve got my reasons…but I can guarantee the next one won’t disappoint.

Alright so back to the topic at hand – this week’s episodic musing. A lot of people talk about discipline, and I have too in the past, but one thing I think that should be combined with discipline is drive. Why? Let’s get started.

Musings Episode 78: Drive…

not everyone is going to like what you do or what you have to offer however if you can't see yourself doing anything else and you have the drive and ambition get the training and go for it kristin chenoweth, kristin chenoweth quotes, rego's life quotes, drive quotes, Rego's Life quotes, Rego's Life drive quotes, drive quotes Rego's Life, quotes Rego's Life, Musings Episode 78 Drive, Rego's Life, Rego's Life Musings Episode 78 Drive, Musings Episode 78 Drive Rego's Life, drive equals success, discipline and drive, discipline, standards, high standards, discipline and success, opportunity, drive and discipline, how to discipline yourself, how to increase drive, life

So drive and discipline, how are they linked?

Discipline can be considered developing a habit of doing something over time, so much that you do it whether you feel like it or not.

It’s like making something so much a part of your life that it feels like the requirement of eating or sleeping – it becomes essential and necessary.

But what about drive? Well I’d say drive is what makes that discipline actually pay off.

Think about it. You can have discipline in doing something, but that doesn’t mean you have drive to push you in whatever it is you’ve disciplined yourself to do.

In other words, you may have discipline, but may not be necessarily pushing yourself to your max in whatever it is you’re doing.

You may not be doing things as good as you could be doing them.

So going back to the food analogy it’s a bit like you may have the discipline to eat on time, three meals a day, but you may lack the drive to eat properly, with foods that fuel your body and are good for your overall health.

You could be disciplined to workout everyday but not have the drive to really push yourself beyond your limits in each workout.

Or you could be disciplined to take out 10 minutes a day to learn a language, but may just be repeating the words like a parrot rather than putting together a comprehensive and progressive study programme so you can actually become conversational in a certain amount of time.

So discipline is what can make your prepared and set you up for seeing results, but drive is ultimately what determines the quality of the results you’ll get in the end of what you’re trying to accomplish short or long-term.

Drive is also what can keep your standards high.

Just really really believe in what you're trying to do don't let people alter that let people advise you and lead you down paths to make smart business decisions but trust your instinct and trust that overwhelming drive that made you put all your dreams and everything on the line Luke Byran, Luke Byan quotes, Rego's Life quotes, drive quotes, Rego's Life drive quotes, drive quotes Rego's Life, quotes Rego's Life, Musings Episode 78 Drive, Rego's Life, Rego's Life Musings Episode 78 Drive, Musings Episode 78 Drive Rego's Life, drive equals success, discipline and drive, discipline, standards, high standards, discipline and success, opportunity, drive and discipline, how to discipline yourself, how to increase drive, life

While discipline is the furnace, drive is the logs you keep feeding it so you can produce a high quality heat.

Imagine if you just put sticks and branches into the furnace – you’re not really going to get any significant heat, now are you?

The same goes for life. Whether it’s a workout, a university degree, a career, a language, hell, even a video game you’re trying to 100% on, you can set aside and put in the time for it everyday, but what you do during that time will determine the results you have in the future.

You’ve got to constantly be seeking to get out of your comfort zone.

Things don’t really ever get easy – instead you get stronger, smarter, better, faster, etc.

But if you don’t have the drive to do what you’re disciplining yourself to do, you won’t really get any of those results.

Instead you’re more than likely to stagnate. Get comfortable. Develop a non-productive routine (a bit like watching TV – you just veg out).

You don’t want that.

You want that fire in your belly and the flame under your bum.

You want beast mode, where people look into your eyes and see a flame so fierce they look away because they know you’re in the zone.

This may just seem like I’m talking about workouts but believe me, you can apply the same fierceness to all aspects of life.

Natural ability is important but you can go far without it if you have the focus drive desire and positive attitude Kirsten Sweetland, Kirsten Sweetland quotes, Rego's Life quotes, drive quotes, Rego's Life drive quotes, drive quotes Rego's Life, quotes Rego's Life, Musings Episode 78 Drive, Rego's Life, Rego's Life Musings Episode 78 Drive, Musings Episode 78 Drive Rego's Life, drive equals success, discipline and drive, discipline, standards, high standards, discipline and success, opportunity, drive and discipline, how to discipline yourself, how to increase drive, life

I go into beast mode even in writing…with some good lofi hip hop instrumental at times, of course.

So really the key here is to not just do what you’ve disciplined yourself to do, but do it exceedingly well.

Always constructively critique what you’re doing.

Always see where you can make small but significant improvements.

Think of that drive like a steam roller…you want to crush an ineffective laziness in yourself, that tries to get in your way.

Complacency can be laziness.

But I say ineffective laziness because there are two types of lazy:

1. The “do absolutely nothing and make every excuse in the book” lazy.

Or

2. The “find a better, smarter, more efficient way of doing things” lazy.

Through drive and discipline, you can actually harness your laziness to suit your needs and make learning or accomplishing things way easier.

It’s all a matter of perspective.

Success is almost totally dependent upon drive and persistence The extra energy required to make another effort or try another approach is the secret of winning Denis Waitley, Denis Waitley quotes, Rego's Life quotes, drive quotes, Rego's Life drive quotes, drive quotes Rego's Life, quotes Rego's Life, Musings Episode 78 Drive, Rego's Life, Rego's Life Musings Episode 78 Drive, Musings Episode 78 Drive Rego's Life, drive equals success, discipline and drive, discipline, standards, high standards, discipline and success, opportunity, drive and discipline, how to discipline yourself, how to increase drive, life

Discipline yourself to set aside time for whatever it is you want to accomplish – it’ll never be time wasted.

Drive yourself to do whatever it is you want to accomplish well and with a high standard in mind.

Learn to take steps that are smart, clever, and efficient so you can maintain quality and get the results you want.

Things don’t have to be hard – if you look at them a different way.

It’s all about perspective.

Think about it…

And as always…

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 77: Travel…

I’m hoping everyone’s week is off to a good start. While I know I skipped For The Weekenders last week, it’ll run as usual this week…but for this episodic musing I’d like to throw some thoughts your way on something directly related to it – travel.

Let’s get started.

Musings Episode 77: Travel…

To Travel Is To Take A Journey Into Yourself Danny Kaye, rego's life quotes, danny kaye quotes, danny kaye, Musings Episode 77 Travel, Rego's Life Musings Episode 77 Travel, Musings Episode 77 Travel Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, travel benefits, travel quotes, travelling, holidays, vacations, holiday, vacation, culture, open mind, culture enthusiast, episodic musings

So you’ve been reading the blog for a while now. You’ve learnt about lots of places to go, things to eat, and original things to do.

This time around I’ve really decided to start focusing on travelling abroad more though. Reason being is because I think with the sheer amount of craziness that’s been erupting in politics – xenophobia in particular – that people need to be doing a lot more of this than they currently are.

But a lot more of it with an open mind.

Every time I travel, there’s a certain trend I notice at least once during the trip.

There’s always someone else who is also travelling, but is a complete ass to the people of the country they’re travelling to.

I say this not to rant, but because there’s a certain characteristic that, like I said earlier, each individual that acts like this is missing: an open mind.

When you travel with an open mind, you get to fully experience the culture. You get to taste, feel, breathe, and drink it. It goes beyond hotels and fancy restaurants, gift shops and clothing stores.

Which brings us to the point that there are two types of travellers – the tourist, and the culture enthusiast.

You might want to consider checking if you’re the latter, because you can learn a lot more when you travel if you are.

People Who Don't Travel Cannot Have A Global View All They See Is What's In Front Of Them Those People Cannot Accept New Things Because All They Know Is Where They Live Martin Yan, Rego's Life Quotes, Martin Yan quotes, Martin Yan, Musings Episode 77 Travel, Rego's Life Musings Episode 77 Travel, Musings Episode 77 Travel Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, travel benefits, travel quotes, travelling, holidays, vacations, holiday, vacation, culture, open mind, culture enthusiast, episodic musings

One’s open minded, one’s not.

What do I mean by open minded though?

Well I find the way most people travel to be rather…boring. Typical. Being a tourists usually goes like this…

You get on a plane. You check into a hotel. You stick to the touristy areas. You buy shit you don’t need. You buy more shit you don’t need. Both of which can actually be purchased at any touristy area in several countries.

You eat at the restaurants that cater to tourist the most.

You make a half assed effort at speaking the language but still really, really prefer English.

You hop on a tour bus.

You hop off a tour bus.

You stick to a guided tour.

……. 😐

Then there’s the culture enthusiast.

You get on a plane. Sure, you check into a hotel but you do a little research, find something that not every tourist and their grandma knows about.

You explore local areas. You spend your money renting a car and checking out more areas.

You look for good restaurants off the beaten path.

You get a relatively decent grasp of the language, enough to at least be mildly conversational, and discourage using English unless absolutely necessary.

You find out what the locals like to do for fun.

You do what the locals do for fun.

You meet a few cool locals while doing what the locals like to do for fun.

You learn new things.

You avoid guided tours and tour buses like the plague.

What’s the difference between the two?

I like to think of the tourist as someone who observes from the outside – like watching a fish through a glass bowl.

Yeah, they’re in a country, they sleep, eat, and spend money in it, but rarely do they ever actually touch the culture. Rarely do they ever relate, or even find something or someone to relate to.

While the culture enthusiast actually feels the culture.

They may not end up befriending everyone in the city or area, but they take a little bit of something away while leaving something behind, in the abstract sense.

There’s a saying:

If you talk to a man in a language he understands that goes to his head If you talk to him in his language that goes to his heart Nelson Mandela, Rego's Life quotes, Nelson Mandela quotes, Nelson Mandela, Musings Episode 77 Travel, Rego's Life Musings Episode 77 Travel, Musings Episode 77 Travel Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, travel benefits, travel quotes, travelling, holidays, vacations, holiday, vacation, culture, open mind, culture enthusiast, episodic musings

 

Engage with people from another country and you’ll come to better understand them.

When you begin to understand them more you begin to connect with them more.

When you begin to connect with them more, you begin to relate to them more.

And when you begin to relate to them more, all those walls, all those mental barriers that people put up, that politicians put up, that the media puts up…will slowly start to come down.

Travelling is more than just a good holiday.

It’s a chance to learn something.

A chance to connect with something outside of your comfort zone.

A chance to connect with people you might never get to connect with in your own space.

And when people start connecting with other people in a positive way, well some pretty epic, pretty significant changes to things, and the way you think, can happen.

Look out for Quote Wednesdays this week.

And as always…

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 76: Standards…

I’m hoping everyone’s having a good week. There have been a few thoughts bouncing around my head after last week’s episodic musing, one being standards. Let’s get started.

Musings Episode 76: Standards…

Set high standards and few limitations for yourself Anthony J D'angelo, Musings Episode 76 Standards, Rego's Life Musings Episode 76 Standards, Musings Episode 76 Standards Rego's Life, Rego's Life, standards, standards quotes, high standards quotes, standard quotes, high standard quotes, rego's life quotes, episodic musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur

When I say standards I don’t want you to limit yourself to just thinking of setting standards in relationships.

Instead, think how setting standards can extend to several aspects of life – health, money, appearance, intelligence, even spiritual/energy/vibrational levels.

Over the years I’ve realised there are imbalances that people build within themselves.

Someone will become really book smart, top of the class, but totally forego their health.

Another will push hard in the gym, going off bro science, but not really learn the real science behind it – diet, beyond-superficial strength, CNS health.

Some will push for financial success, but let their standards for their social circle drop – stepping on people’s toes, rubbing shoulders with ruthless (not shrewd) business associates, sacrificing having a quality social circle, all for the sake of adding digits to their bank account.

Others will dive into romantic relationships, abandoning friendships that have lasted for years – while others still will blindly follow their friends’ advice religiously without checking to see if their social circle is toxic.

One way or another, people have a tendency to fully dive into one thing, setting a standard for that specific area in their lives or themselves, while forgetting to maintain other aspects of said lives and selves.

Let us be about setting high standards for life love creativity and wisdom If our expectations in these areas are low, we are not likely to experience wellness Setting high standards makes every day and every decade worth looking forward to Greg anderson, rego's life quotes, Greg Anderson quotes, Greg Anderson, Musings Episode 76 Standards, Rego's Life Musings Episode 76 Standards, Musings Episode 76 Standards Rego's Life, Rego's Life, standards, standards quotes, high standards quotes, standard quotes, high standard quotes, rego's life quotes, episodic musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur

I understand that one should mostly play to their strengths, what they’ve been gradually mastering – it’s what moves a person forward quickly; but sometimes, it’s good to keep your weaknesses in check as well.

It’s even better to be a well-rounded person.

Life is a funny thing – it’ll teach you your weaknesses through experiences.

And sometimes those weaknesses will rear their ugly head when an experience feels like it’s busted right through your strengths.

It’s these moments, these times when you push through that are a testament to strength.

But in order to be strong all-around, you’ve got to set standards – in MORE than one area.

You’ve got to face your weaknesses too – otherwise your standards will inevitably be lower in those areas.

Think about it – you’re fantastic at being book smart, and that’s fine – that might get you that dream job you’ve always wanted…but you’re terrible at being street smart. You may suck at negotiating for instance, or recognising when that dream job is only paying you about 60% of your value.

And screw the “I’m not in it for the money” – no, you may not be, but you do deserve what you’re worth.

Because if you think like that – right there – you’ve already set lower standards for your value – even though you pushed in college/university to max out that value.

Contradictory and stupid, right?

I have very high standards for every part of life my work my relationships food love I can't just pretend Olivia Wilde, rego's life quotes, olivia wilde quotes, olivia wilde, Musings Episode 76 Standards, Rego's Life Musings Episode 76 Standards, Musings Episode 76 Standards Rego's Life, Rego's Life, standards, standards quotes, high standards quotes, standard quotes, high standard quotes, rego's life quotes, episodic musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur

Let’s try another one.

You’re fantastic at finances, but inept in romantic relationships – meaning you may not be able to see if someone’s right for you – when someone’s in love with your money, or you.

Money can’t teach you that – being a whiz kid at math can’t teach you that. The only thing that can teach you that, is if you teach yourself to set a standard.

The only way you develop a standard, is to get out there and date – find out what you like in a person.

And don’t look for the money to make you likeable either – again, that’s lowering your standard.

Keep things simple, not flashy.

Because if you didn’t have the money, would your personality be a likeable one? If you can’t answer that, then you also might need to raise your standard when it comes to your personality.

You want to think about keeping your standards high with ALL aspects of your life.

Health and fitness – what you feed your body, your mind muscle connection.

Finances – what you’re willing to do for money, whether you’re willing to sacrifice that which can’t be bought.

Relationships – the way you think you ought to be treated by someone, how much your friends have your back (in a constructive way)

Energy – how much time you take out to get to know yourself, to re-adjust your energy levels, to not let existing or living life suck energy out of you, but breathe it into you instead.

Everything in your life should have a standard.

Sacrifices? Screw sacrifices – they’re just another coping mechanism created by mankind to say you can have this but not without giving up that.

You can't please everyone When you're too focused on living up to other people's standards you aren't spending enough time raising your own Some people may whisper complain and judge But for the most part it's all in your head People care less about your actions than you think Why They have their own problems Kris carr, rego's life quotes, kris carr quotes, kris carr, Musings Episode 76 Standards, Rego's Life Musings Episode 76 Standards, Musings Episode 76 Standards Rego's Life, Rego's Life, standards, standards quotes, high standards quotes, standard quotes, high standard quotes, rego's life quotes, episodic musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur

Life isn’t about sacrifices.

It’s about balance.

And balance is about standards.

Keep your standards up, and things become easier to balance – because you’re not constantly juggling the idea of “what important thing do I have to cancel out today to get this other important thing?”

Set your standards.

Prioritise, not eliminate.

And watch things balance out.

As always…

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 75: Relationships…

I’m guessing everyone had a good weekend. Let’s just jump right into it.

Musings Episode 75: Relationships…

There's a hardening of the culture reality tv has lowered the standards of entertainment you're left wondering about the legitimacy of relationships nancy meyers, nancy meyers, nancy meyers quotes, rego's life quotes, Musings Episode 75 Relationships, Rego's Life Musings Episode 75 Relationships, Musings Episode 75 Relationships Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, relationships, friendships, romantic relationships, family relationships, business relationships, quality relationships, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, episodic musings, relationship quotes, friendship quotes, romantic relationship quotes, family quotes, life, food for thought, teamwork, time, time is an investment, sundays
When you think about socialising, the term can be defined in many ways, and is really a multi-purpose thing. It fits into our daily life on many levels – platonically, romantically, etc.

People socialise for several reasons – maintaining friendships, getting acquainted with new people for the sake of acquiring new friends; reinforcing/building onto romantic relationships, creating new romantic relationships; expanding social networks for business purposes; maintaining family relationships; socialising to learn new things – maybe a skill you want to develop or just for the sake of honing your current skill in the art of conversation.

When you look at the list above, it’s more than obvious that socialising is primarily used for the sake of creating or maintaining relationships throughout life in general.

kindness and intelligence don't always deliver us from the pitfalls and traps there are always failures of love of will of imagination there is no way to take the danger out of human relationships barbara grizzuti harrison quotes, rego's life quotes, barbara grizzuti harrison
Socialising also takes time…and time is a valuable asset that’s always wise to spend smartly.

So if you’re spending something as precious as time on socialising, naturally you want the experience of socialising to be one of quality – because you want the relationships you form from socialising to be of quality.

And when you think about it, relationships are something people have and have had throughout their natural lives. For some, relationships have consisted of quantity over quality, and vice versa.

Time, socialising, and relationships are all intrinsically linked to each other. Meaning time is the metaphorical money you invest at life’s “investment firm” of socialising, in the hopes to see a good return on your investment in the form of relationships.

relationships like cars should undergo regular services to make sure they are still roadworthy zygmunt bauman, zygmunt bauman, zygmunt bauman quotes, Musings Episode 75 Relationships, Rego's Life Musings Episode 75 Relationships, Musings Episode 75 Relationships Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, relationships, friendships, romantic relationships, family relationships, business relationships, quality relationships, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, episodic musings, relationship quotes, friendship quotes, romantic relationship quotes, family quotes, rego's life quotes life, food for thought, teamwork, time, time is an investment, sundays
But unlike currency, your focus on your ROI isn’t about quantity, so much as it is quality.

You may want a large social network, as the natural way of thinking is that knowing a lot of people can help you get a lot of things accomplished.

However the main caveat of that is while you may know of a lot of people, the relationships formed may not give you the strongest return on your investment.

And in this game called life, you’ve gotta learn to invest. So you get your feet wet, take a few losses in the beginning, and become wiser for the next time around.

I’ve noticed the older I get the more I prefer my social circle to be smaller.

i always notice the dysfunctional dynamic of human relationships because most places where you encounter it people are trying to pretend it isn't happening sophie hannah, sophie hannah, sophie hannah quotes, rego's life quotes, Musings Episode 75 Relationships, Rego's Life Musings Episode 75 Relationships, Musings Episode 75 Relationships Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, relationships, friendships, romantic relationships, family relationships, business relationships, quality relationships, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, episodic musings, relationship quotes, friendship quotes, romantic relationship quotes, family quotes, life, food for thought, teamwork, time, time is an investment, sundays
Socialising with a lot of people is a great thing – don’t get me wrong. In socialising for friendships, romantic relationships, and even business, the more people you gain exposure to, the more you realise what type of people you want in your life.

And the more you hone in on what type of people you want in your life, the higher chance you have of your time being invested in higher quality relationships.

It’s like having an essential wardrobe – everything in it complements you well, is versatile, is made with care and dedication, and you enjoy wearing everything in it.

For friendships, you want to know that your friends have your back, that they really know you – understand you, respect your time, and have your best interest at heart – in general they uplift you.

one of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood lucius annaeus seneca, lucius annaeus seneca, rego's life quotes, lucius annaeus seneca quotes, Musings Episode 75 Relationships, Rego's Life Musings Episode 75 Relationships, Musings Episode 75 Relationships Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, relationships, friendships, romantic relationships, family relationships, business relationships, quality relationships, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, episodic musings, relationship quotes, friendship quotes, romantic relationship quotes, family quotes, life, food for thought, teamwork, time, time is an investment, sundays
For romantic relationships, it’s the same thing, and an even bigger investment…more risks, more time. It’s one person getting to know you on an even deeper level, learning what your vulnerabilities are, learning what pushes your buttons, what makes you tick, and you coming to know the same about them.

I won't have a traditional marriage I don't find the value in that anymore but I am such a hopeless romantic and I really want love and I want a committed relationship so I am going to reinvent marriage for myself Halle berry quotes, rego's life quotes, halle berry, Musings Episode 75 Relationships, Rego's Life Musings Episode 75 Relationships, Musings Episode 75 Relationships Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, relationships, friendships, romantic relationships, family relationships, business relationships, quality relationships, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, episodic musings, relationship quotes, friendship quotes, romantic relationship quotes, family quotes, life, food for thought, teamwork, time, time is an investment, sundays
For family, again the same thing – but probably the most taken for granted relationships of all. It’s interesting because sometimes, in people having the underlying assumption that they are family, they also assume there’s nothing left to learn about  their family – which can actually make family relationships have a wider “knowledge gap” than when it comes to building friendships with people you’re just acquainted with.

In one way or another everybody has this experience in their lives The moment when you have to define your relationship to family and how your family's made you who you are whether you've spent your life running from your family or deeply connected to your family Alex kurtzman, rego's life quotes, alex kurtzman quotes, alex kurtzman, Musings Episode 75 Relationships, Rego's Life Musings Episode 75 Relationships, Musings Episode 75 Relationships Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, relationships, friendships, romantic relationships, family relationships, business relationships, quality relationships, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, episodic musings, relationship quotes, friendship quotes, romantic relationship quotes, family quotes, life, food for thought, teamwork, time, time is an investment, sundays
For business, the game is similar but totally different at the same time. It’s an entirely different animal, a totally different investment. Not every follower is your fan, and sometimes (like many entrepreneurs know) you’ve got to keep things close to your vest.

Business relationships shouldn’t just be focused around your customer either, but all your stakeholders – everyone inside and outside an organisation. Get the wrong people who only look out for their self-interests or what’s comfortable for them, and you’ve got toxic investments ready to slowly strangle the lifeline of your company or your milestones.

Western business people often don't get the importance of establishing human relationships Daniel goleman, rego's life quotes, daniel goleman, daniel goleman quotes, Musings Episode 75 Relationships, Rego's Life Musings Episode 75 Relationships, Musings Episode 75 Relationships Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, relationships, friendships, romantic relationships, family relationships, business relationships, quality relationships, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, episodic musings, relationship quotes, friendship quotes, romantic relationship quotes, family quotes, life, food for thought, teamwork, time, time is an investment, sundays
Overall I like to think of quality relationships as small miracles. The human race has seen and participated in a lot (and I do mean a lot) of war…and they still do.

If civilization is to survive we must cultivate the science of human relationships the ability of all peoples of all kinds to live together in the same world at peace Franklin D Roosevelt, rego's life, Franklin D Roosevelt quotes, Franklin D Roosevelt, Musings Episode 75 Relationships, Rego's Life Musings Episode 75 Relationships, Musings Episode 75 Relationships Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, relationships, friendships, romantic relationships, family relationships, business relationships, quality relationships, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, episodic musings, relationship quotes, friendship quotes, romantic relationship quotes, family quotes, life, food for thought, teamwork, time, time is an investment, sundays
History has shown us that conflict has the potential to match cooperation – and vice versa…but really, relationships – the art of caring about, understanding, knowing, and working with each other – are essential to human survival; and entirely dependent on people making the effort to get to know each other on a deeper, more quality level.

Unfortunately in the past (and still today), this way of thinking has been known to be deliberately fragmented, further dividing the human race by separating each other based on a skin colour or location.

So when you think about relationships, they’re really like small miracles. Socialising is an attraction of energy, but sometimes you can have energy vampires.

Quality relationships are literally an attraction of higher energies towards each other, which can form a bond that has the potential to be unbreakable – if said energies stay at a positive, higher level.

There's only so many variations on the basics of human relationships to me it's all about the detail and how you tell the story how you say I love you k. Flay, rego's life quotes, k flay quotes, k flay, Musings Episode 75 Relationships, Rego's Life Musings Episode 75 Relationships, Musings Episode 75 Relationships Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, relationships, friendships, romantic relationships, family relationships, business relationships, quality relationships, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, episodic musings, relationship quotes, friendship quotes, romantic relationship quotes, family quotes, life, food for thought, teamwork, time, time is an investment, sundays
And when you think about that and transfer it to something more “physical”, as people, we all wear different “masks”.

I wouldn’t say we act differently, but perform differently in different relationships.

A person can act the same, in regards to choosing to let their personality or good energy consistently shine through – but like sports, when you have to get sport specific, you work with different equipment, terrain, players, etc…you train differently.

You may still train hard, but you change your training, so you can tailor your performance for that particular sport, as you know different things can excel you in different ways.

And when you start thinking about relationships like sports teams and energy, you start to realise that you want players beside you who are in it to win it, but on a higher level.

You want players that know, and expect you to know, that by having your best interest at heart as well as theirs – that that thinking – pushes the whole team forward – it moves a whole team forward…and in moving a whole team forward, you can move mountains.

Think about it.

As always…

Stay awesome.

Musings Episode 74: Do You Deserve It…?

So I’m hoping everyone had an epic weekend. There are some thoughts that have been bouncing around in my head since the last episodic musing, in particular thoughts that revolve around what people define as being deserving of things.

You look on social media, and you listen to conversationswatch movies, listen to lyrics in songs…and I’ve realised something’s popping up more and more that I don’t entirely agree with. Alright here goes…

Musings Episode 74: Do You Deserve It?

don't let anyone ever make you feel like you don't deserve what you want 10 things i hate about you,10 things I hate about you quotes, rego's life quotes,, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Rego's Life Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, episodic musings, Rego's Life Episodic Musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, deserve quotes, do you deserve it quotes, you deserve it quotes, life, willpower, will power, free will, witt lowry, ollie music, ollie raps, witt lowry the ride, ollie product, witt lowry dreaming with our eyes open
It seems that people are starting to think it’s alright to gauge and dictate to other people whether they deserve something or not.

Now I mentioned in the previous episodic musing that when it comes to free will, no one has the right to really dictate to anyone what they should get out of life – Epictetus made this clear, and to paraphrase him once more, attempting to control or dictate another person’s free will takes tremendous effort as it goes against the natural law of things; things which are in our control, and things which are out of our control.

Is freedom anything else than the right to live as we wish nothing else epictetus, epictetus quotes, enchiridion quotes, rego's life quotes, epictetus, enchiridion, epictetus quotes rego's life, enchiridion quotes rego's life, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Rego's Life Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, episodic musings, Rego's Life Episodic Musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, deserve quotes, do you deserve it quotes, you deserve it quotes, life, willpower, will power, free will, deserving quotes, deserve quotes rego's life
As a side note, if you haven’t read Epictectus’ “Enchiridion” – it’s basically a summarised version, a “manual” of his teaching of Stoicism – I highly recommend you pick it up from Amazon.

Seriously it cost less than coffee if you get the Dover Thrift Edition. Buy it.

Getting back to the subject, I saw something interesting the other day on Instagram. I didn’t screenshot it as it made me so disgusted it wasn’t worth a save in my phone, but ironically it pissed me off so bad I remember it clearly; so I’ll tell you what is said.

“Those who think they deserve it the most, usually don’t.”

…..Seriously?

What’s interesting is I’ve heard this once or twice in some songs I’ve stumbled across when discovering new music, and group conversations I’ve been involved in in the past.

And I wholeheartedly disagree with this.

Fair enough, there are some people who don’t put in any work for something they want; and there are people who are given everything they want without putting in any work, ergo feeling they deserve whatever they want.

But there are also those out there who bust their ass everyday – for months, years – grinding and meet rejection after rejection and know they deserve what they want.

It's a great great experience to finally get the reception that you know you rightfully deserve Kendrick Lamar, kendrick lamar quotes, rego's life quotes, Kendrick Lamar, deserving quotes, deserve quotes rego's life, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Rego's Life Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, episodic musings, Rego's Life Episodic Musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur
And when I see people who state that people who think they deserve something don’t, it really gets under my skin, because when you think about it…it’s not a bold statement – it’s assumptive and asinine, a dash of ignorance, and just a sprinkle of arrogant.

When you take your attention away from mainstream – mainstream TV, movies, music, books, websites, everything…you begin to think about things differently…and when you think about it successful mainstream people don’t really elaborate on what their way up was like – not in a raw, real feel sense.

I’ve been listening to some less well-known music artists on YouTube lately when I get a chance and I’ve gotta say, some of their lyrics hit me like a brick wall.

They don’t talk about women, drugs, cars, sex, pumped up violence, all the regular bunk you hear on mainstream artists’ songs; but they talk about real things no one else wants to really discuss – things other artists probably know won’t sell as well:

Witt Lowry – The Ride

Ollie – Product

Witt Lowry – Dreaming With Our Eyes Open

And listening to the lyrics makes you realise, that the only person who has a right to ask you if you deserve it – if you deserve what you want – is you.

If you’re out there making the effort, changing your game plan when some things don’t work, learning new stuff to make other things work, and not losing sight of what it is you want – if what you want has substance – no one has a right to tell you that if you think you deserve it the most, you probably don’t.

That’s just bull.

If you work hard in real life people tend to get in your way either from inertia or prejudice and they stop you achieving things It's the worst thing about real life compared with sports where you generally get what you deserve if you're the fastest guy you win there are no other games being played Daley Thompson, Daley Thompson quotes, rego's life quotes, Daley Thompson, deserving quotes, deserve quotes rego's life, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Rego's Life Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, episodic musings, Rego's Life Episodic Musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur
And anyone who has the audacity to make such a statement in my opinion is somebody who is consciously making an incompetent statement, has never even entertained the thought about considering what it’s like to walk in someone’s shoes, or simply thinks there’s not enough caviar to go around.

Having the gall enough to even make that statement, shows that someone is already spoilt rotten with a complete disregard for humanity.

Because there are three main paths that people who go after what they want and think they deserve end up taking:

The path of attaining what they deserve.
The path of settling for less than what they deserve (read: the path of becoming complacent).
The path of giving up on the FEELING of deserving what they’ve put effort into attaining (read: the path of becoming insecure).

Every day people settle for less than they deserve They are only partially living or at best living a partial life Every human being has the potential for greatness Bo Bennett, Bo Bennett quotes, rego's life quotes, Bo Bennett, deserving quotes, deserve quotes rego's life, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Rego's Life Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, episodic musings, Rego's Life Episodic Musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur

At the end of the day it’s YOU who knows what efforts your putting in. It’s YOU who knows how much time you’ve put into going after your milestones. It’s YOU who knows what you’ve been through, what you’re going through, and where you want to go.

Don’t let anyone ever dictate that to you.

don't let anyone ever make you feel like you don't deserve what you want 10 things i hate about you,10 things I hate about you quotes, rego's life quotes,, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Rego's Life Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, episodic musings, Rego's Life Episodic Musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur, deserve quotes, do you deserve it quotes, you deserve it quotes, life, willpower, will power, free will

Because this deserves reiteration.

This is for the millennials, the 90s and the 80s kids.

You may not have the job security, the house, the car, the holidays, the balanced salary to living expense ratio, the opportunities your parents had when they were younger, you may not have all of that JUST YET

…and it may seem a little harder to acquire those things in today’s time…

…and well shit, it is, with the way multinationals are making application processes for people increasingly unnecessarily long and complex…

…bending people over and trying to get them to take it up the @ss with no lube, by offering far-less-than square deals…

….essentially looking at humans as actual resources, rather than people.

Funny thing is while others are trying to dictate to you whether or not you deserve something, if we stripped away modern civilisation and tried our hand at something like growing a garden, there is a higher and near concrete chance nature itself would effortlessly allow us to reap the harvest of the effort we put in, compared to some people these days.

Notice how the term “personnel department” changed to “human resources”? Yeah. Worse thing to ever happen…

…but one thing you do have is willpower, and the right to believe in yourself.

If you’re putting in the effort; getting those top grades in university; doing the daily grind as entrepreneur; or making an effort to make your salary work for you, for something you want that’s bigger than you, bigger than the life you have now; no one but YOU, has the right to ask…

“Do you deserve it?”

Dedicate yourself to the good you deserve and desire for yourself Give yourself peace of mind You deserve to be happy You deserve delight Hannah Arendt, Hannah Arendt quotes, rego's life quotes, Hannah Arendt, deserving quotes, deserve quotes rego's life, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Rego's Life Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It, Musings Episode 74 Do You Deserve It Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, episodic musings, Rego's Life Episodic Musings, episodic musings of a quintessential entrepreneur
