Tim Ferris is an American entrepreneur, investor, author, podcaster, and lifestyle guru. He is creative and busy. He coined the simple four word phrase, “make before you manage” to remind him to remain creative.
You’re busy too, but are you taking time to be creative. You don’t have to be as busy as Tim Ferris, but you were born to be creative. It is important that you take time to be creative and be balanced before you start managing your day to day tasks.
You are going to have bad days, bad weeks, and yes, even bad months. During those hectic times your routine can feel non existent. Find a way to stay in balance.
You may not have time to meditate for 20 minutes, exercise for 30, and journal for 20 minutes, and that’s alright.
This doesn’t mean you can’t take 2 minutes and do something creative to stimulate your mind and move your creativity forward by just a little bit.
Small and slow progress is better than no progress in every area of your life. Sometimes we neglect ourself when that is the most important person we need to take care of to effectively impact others.
The world, and the busy, can wait for a few minutes. Take a little time to set the right tone for the day so the day doesn’t immediately set the tone for you.
Make before you manage.
I’m cheering for you.
