Joseph Yeager, "Battle
of New Orleans, 1817"
The Most Productive Thing
By: Paul Joseph, G.N,
The one main thing
I want the next generation to know. . .
if they live by this creed
and truly do this in their hearts. . .
and believe it. . . and
can look in the mirror in the morning. . when they're young and brushing
their teeth or they're older and shaving as they grow up. . .
if they can go through life with the philosophy and the belief
that. . . "I must do the most productive thing
possible at every given moment," then
they will succeed in life in everything they want. Whether its doing
the most productive thing could be laying on the beach in Hawaii, if that's
deserved. It might be, having religious study, it might be practicing
your musical instrument or studying or going the extra mile. But,
it's certainly not just sitting on your bottom watching cartoons or smoking
pot or thinking bad thoughts. I must do the most productive thing possible
at every given moment. It might be eating the right foods. It might
be resting your body and taking care of it. Or enriching your mind,
whatever it is. If you can honestly say when you reflect back at
any time during the day that this is the most productive thing possible
you can be doing then you will be truly successful in every aspect of life.
People waste too
much of their time. They don't live to their fullest. And if you
want to live it to its fullest, its greatest potential and bring it all
out and completely blossom. . . you need to live by that creed.
And if you can look in the mirror in the morning and smile and say, "I'm
doing it. This is the most productive thing possible for me."
Then there'll be no boundaries . . . no boundaries mental or physical no
aspirations or desires ever imagined that you won't reach. Because,
most people don't live by that. And the one's
who do, succeed beyond all expectations.
This is the whole thing in a nutshell. And its it's not limited to
work, work, work at any given moment. That's not what it means. They
have to understand it could be total relaxation or family, or whatever.
But it's it. Not I will do. I'll try to do. I might do.
I'm gonna do. It's I must do. There's no grey area there.
It's clear as can be. And then the last
thing I will say is you must set goals for yourself and write them down.
If you don't write down your goals, they're only dreams. Until they're
on paper they're just dreams and hopes and wishes. If you want them
to come to fruition and reality you need to write them down and read them
