Lesson: Decide to Use Your Time Better

“I call this book The Art of Taking Action, because, like all arts, we can only improve through practice. We become skillful at taking action by taking action. What do you need to do next? The Art of Taking Action isn’t simply about keeping busy or checking things off your to-do list. It’s about choosing what to do, how to do it, and the development of character…

It’s not just about doing more and procrastinating less. It’s about your dreams, your passion, the risks you need to take and the opportunity to forget yourself and simply disappear into the moment as it unfolds. It’s about less talk and more action. It’s about less blaming and more appreciation. It’s about less mindlessness and more presence. You just need to figure out how to work with your life — with your circumstances, your feelings, your family members, your challenges, your dreams and your disappointments. You have to figure out what you need to do, when you need to do it, and how to do it to your best ability. There’s nobody whipping you from behind. Your life is in front of you, waiting for your next move.

Use your time wisely. It is a gift and it is only temporary. What is it that matters? What should you be doing?”

Azam’s one sentence summary:

How to use Japanese based ideas like gradual improvement over time to create positive changes in all areas of your life.

Krech is an author and lecturer on Japanese history, culture and psychology – Badass Stuff…

Lesson: Just Get IN MOTION

“It’s not really the feeling of excitement itself which is the culprit here, it is the loss of excitement which then prompts us to abandon our efforts towards fulfillment of our dreams — dreams which were, at one time, very exciting to us. If anticipatory excitement moves us to action, the loss of excitement often prompts us to stop. Action dissolves into inaction. Meditation teacher Eknath Easwaran tells us of a Sanskrit word — arambhashura — which means ‘heroes at the beginning’ — people who take up a job with a fanfare of trumpets but soon find that their enthusiasm has tiptoed down the back stairs.

… Here’s Newton’s First Law of Physics: An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by some outside force. Sir Isaac Newton was one of the most extraordinary intellects of his time. He realized that when an object is at rest it will basically stay at rest unless something influences it. It’s also true that when an object is in motion it will basically stay in motion. This is what we refer to as momentum. This is why small steps can be so valuable. They offer momentum at a fairly low cost. In other words, it takes very little effort to create momentum. One pushup, one dish washed, one photo organized, one paragraph written in your novel-to-be. Have you gone very far? No. Do you now have momentum? Yes! And once you have momentum (you are in motion), you are more likely to continue — in motion.”

Lesson: Gradualism Can Move Mountains of Achievement

“In June of 2006, Harriet, a giant tortoise, died at the ripe old age of 176. She was reportedly one of several giant tortoises that Charles Darwin collected on his visit to the Galapagos Islands. Harriet was a domed tortoise. She lived on an island that was fairly wet, where a domed tortoise had an easy time finding and munching on local grasses. Harriet had cousins called saddleback tortoises. The shells of these tortoises evolved in such a way that the tortoises could stretch their necks upwards and graze on above-ground cactus plants. This was necessary because the climate on the islands where they live is much drier, so ground grasses are not readily available.

This adaptation didn’t happen instantly. It happened over millions of years. That’s a timeframe that probably isn’t well suited to most of us when it comes to making changes in our lives. We want to lose 20 pounds, not over the next year, but over the next month. We want to meet someone and fall in love with him or her and have a wonderful, romantic relationship, not sometime in the next 25 years, but during the next few weeks. We want to become proficient at a martial art, or foreign language, or watercolor painting. But that proficiency must happen quickly, for our minds have very little patience for gradual learning and gradual change. Yet the general principle of what Darwin called ‘gradualism’ — incremental changes over time — may give hope to those of us who have consistently tried and failed to make colossal changes in our habits or lifestyle.”

So the next time you consider a goal or dream, come back to the present circumstances of your life and take a constructive step forward. Make your effort the focus of your attention.”

Lesson: Send Ripples That Outlive You.

“So when we are confronted by indecision, we need to take action despite our doubts or confusion. We need to move forward, even if we’re only taking small steps. Those steps, regardless of which direction they go in, are likely to give us new information and experience. Our actions send ripples into the world. The situation may change or reveal itself in a new way once we have moved to a new vantage point.

Think of your life as a movie you are watching. You are midway through the movie and you don’t know what is going to happen. But you’re not supposed to know what is going to happen. The movie is not over yet. This is the challenge posed by the demon of indecision: Can you move forward in the face of uncertainty? Can you co-exist with confusion and not-knowing and take the next step?

What will you create that will outlive you? How many hearts and minds will be touched by your deeds? Use your precious moments wisely. Do what you came here to do.”
