Lo sforzo sia con voi

Seth Godin ha scritto un bel post sul rapporto tra "sforzo" (impegno) e "fortuna". La premessa è semplice: se guardiamo a politici, sportivi, attori e vincitori del superenalotto, sembra che sia molto più importante la fortuna.
Peccato che non possiamo fare nulla per avere fortuna! Mentre possiamo sforzarci.
Molto carina la parte in cui propone una ricetta semplice fatta di cose concrete.

1. Delete 120 minutes a day of 'spare time' from your life. This can include TV, reading the newspaper, commuting, wasting time in social networks and meetings. Up to you.

2. Spend the 120 minutes doing this instead:

  • Exercise for thirty minutes.
  • Read relevant non-fiction (trade magazines, journals, business books, blogs, etc.)
  • Send three thank you notes.
  • Learn new digital techniques (spreadsheet macros, Firefox shortcuts, productivity tools, graphic design, html coding)
  • Volunteer.
  • Blog for five minutes about something you learned.
  • Give a speech once a month about something you don't currently know a lot about.
3. Spend at least one weekend day doing absolutely nothing but being with people you love.

4. Only spend money, for one year, on things you absolutely need to get by. Save the rest, relentlessly.

Provare per credere!
