The Fundamentals Of Time Management Spirituality Information John Harricharan S Interview With Terri Marie Q4 The Simple Secret To Wealth
There are many fundamentals in life, things that we need to make our lives work well for us. Time management is one of those fundamentals. Without it, it is difficult to get anything done, or have time to enjoy anything in life.There are also no guarantees in life. It’s nearly impossible to know exactly what will happen tomorrow, we can only plan to a certain extent. Planning is an essential element in time management; still plans have the ability to change. This is why prioritizing the things you need to accomplish is important, and completing what you can in a manageable time frame crucial. Finishing one task paves the way to completing the next one. You can begin by taking notes and making lists, in order to sort through your tasks to be completed.
Dealing with Emails at Work for Time Management
IF your job requires you to do a lot of your business through email and the Internet, then you know how excessive emails can get. There are certain messages, such as customer contacts, contracts, and other important communication that you need to retain, and a convenient way to get this stuff done is through email. Where you get in trouble is through spam, or junk email. This can be avoided by not using your work email address for personal communications or Web surfing. Be sure to organize your email inbox using folders, in order to prioritize your various types of messages, and for quick reference. And back up any information you want to keep for the long term, and delete messages you no longer need. Many companies have a managing program that works to save time. Databases often store valuable information, and should be maintained. If you store information on the database, be sure to delete or store old files in a different area, so you can save time.
Taking notes is a fundamental part of making time management work. But the notes should be short and direct, and not require too much of their own organization! Having good notes helps us to stay organized and on task, especially if you attend a lot of meetings. You can stay ahead of the game if you take notes before and after the meeting, and you will always be able to convey your ideas to co-workers.
The fundamentals of time management help prepare you for the demands of work, as well as every other aspect of your personal life.
Terri Marie: Well, that was a very interesting and insightful answer as always, John. And I’m always happy to hear what you have to say about the questions that — I’m thinking and I’m hoping other people are thinking. That brings me to another question. There’s been some talk about and people are looking are looking for a purpose in life. But some say that there is no purpose in life. We create our purpose. What do you believe about that?
John Harricharan: It’s similar to when people ask me “What is the meaning of life? and I say life doesn’t have any meaning and they are shocked — absolutely shocked. Because everyone thinks that life has meaning. No, life has no meaning. We bring meaning to life. Life has no purpose except to live it as brilliantly as possible. We bring purpose to life.
It’s like having a bunch of an artist with a bunch of paint. He has his paint brushes and has little things of paint. And there is a big canvas in front of him, and he sits back and he looks at the brush or the brushes. And he looks at his little containers of paint. And he looks at the canvas and he says, “What is the meaning of this canvas? What is the meaning of the paint? They really by themselves have no special meaning. But as he takes his brush, he puts it into the paint and he starts painting on the canvas, out comes a beautiful picture. There could be a painting of the Mona Lisa or any of the great artists could have produced that.
The meaning is in the thing produced and what we bring to it. The artist brought an invisible part of himself, which flowed through the paint, through the canvas. And there is something, which although it’s a painting would influence hundreds and thousands of people forever more. So, so it is with a purpose.
We don’t run around looking for a purpose in life, because the more we do so the more we get it mixed up like the little fish in the ocean. Can you imagine the bunch of little fishes around the big mummy and daddy fish saying, “Can we go find some water, numerous water? We have heard of this great place where there is so much water. We’d like to go. Mummy and daddy fish, can you take us little baby fishes along the search for this great adventure for water?”
It is as almost as ridiculous as that, because our purpose is all around us. The very fact that we are here, the very fact that we breathe, we exist, that is purpose. And I think just to simplify it and put a little laughter into it . The purpose of life is to live it as brilliantly as beautifully as possible.
Terri Marie: And you just gave a brilliant answer to the question, John. Thanks once again. And I loved the little fishy story. All right. You have got into me some superheroes in life and become good friends with them, for instance, Elizabeth Kubler-Ross and Foster Hibbard. What did you learn from maybe Elizabeth or Foster that you’d like to share with the listeners?
John Harricharan: Another question, Terri Marie, which has been asked to me a lot of times. People have said, “Oh, my goodness. You must have learnt so much from all these great people in there.” Absolutely right, except it’s not a one-way street. And I would like to rephrase that and said, “We all learn from each other.” And some of the things I learned were very interesting.
I think what are the most important things I learned from the great people I have met is how human they are, how very much like you and me and everyone else. They are subject to the same forces and same laws of the universe as everyone else. They hurt. They laugh. They cry. They sing. They play. They are happy. They are sad. But there was something else in them that I did not find in the ordinary person.
They had decided to serve, to help others, to love unconditionally, to give up what they think would bring them a lot of good and do things in the service of others. Foster Hibbard was certainly such a person. He would serve people. He would help people. And in doing so he precipitated the tremendously powerful law — The Law of Giving and Receiving, because it says, in as much as you give so shall you receive. You cannot, just as it’s true that you cannot receive without giving, you cannot give without receiving….
And so that made Foster Hibbard a fortune. It put him in touch with some of the other great people. And do you know he went to school, his — one of his schooling or schools, some of his classmates were people or schoolmates were people like Jack Lemmon, some of the Rockefellers, the first President, Bush, and others. That’s the type of people he was led to. And he was a very ordinary person, but yet extraordinary in what he had done with his spirit.
So it was with Elizabeth Kubler-Ross. Elizabeth was my friend for many, many years until she passed on a few years ago. She was a wonderful, wonderful lady who brought so much understanding in this world to the thought of dying; the way people treat it, dying people. And she brought dignity to that and made a total change to the entire hospice situation at the United States. So much so, that her book, the seminal “On Death and Dying” has become required reading of almost all good medical schools on earth, if you will. And so, Elisabeth and I sort of met many years ago through another friend of mine, Brad Steiger, who is an author of over a 150 books.
And in a, kind of, a network with these people we find — we found is that we liked one another, that we loved the same life of firmers and disliked the same life destroyers that we wanted to help people, but not by telling, actually by showing and doing. Because some of the people I have met and know and this includes people like — you mentioned before Foster Hibbard, who was an associate of the great Dr. Napoleon Hill, people like Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Deepak Chopra and many others, Dan Millman.
They all seem to have this desire to look into the future and bring some joy to the current situation in the life of human beings. And that’s what I learned from them. They are just like I am. I am just like they are. And that they don’t teach and I don’t teach. We all learn. We generally meet people for one of two reasons and maybe a combination, which is even better.
One is to teach them something the other is to learn something from them, or the better of the two, the combination of the two, which is to learn and teach. Somewhere in there is an answer to what you ask me.
Now some of you might say “Hey, there is no simple way to wealth” but I disagree and let me tell you why. First of all I would like on encourage you to watch the movie called “The Secret”. It is really an eye opening experience and what I am about to tell you here is just a small part of it. The movie covers a lot of different aspects but the plot can be said in very simple terms.
Thoughts Become Things
What this means is that whatever you focus on will come true for you. The key is for you to see the future in advance. Feel it like it has already happened. I am not saying that this is easy to do but if you can manage to get it done the outcome will be absolutely phenomenal. If you want abundance and you see abundance it clearly come your way then it is abundance that you will get.
To see and feel the future in advance in not something that people normally do and that is why people often live the lives that they live – without abundance. If you spend some time listening to personal development coaches or you are attending seminars or reading books, you will know that everything happens in you mind. All the outer things are formed by how you picture them in your mind.
This might sound a bit strange to you at first and I remember that it was very far from the reality that I knew of but as I learnt more and more it began to make sense. Have you ever misinterpreted another person’s intentions? Have you ever reacted in a certain way in response to the intentions that you though the person had? Maybe you got angry or you got sad, but in reality that was not the person’s true meaning and the feeling that you had was caused by your own interpretation and not by the actual person’s actions.
You can control your own mind and you can decide what you feel about anything that happens. You can decide to focus on all the bad and negative things and in return feel bad and negative about it all. Or you can decide to look for all the positive things that are in everything that happens and by focusing on positive and nice things you shift your mood to being positive and nice.
As I said in the beginning, this is only a small part of the “thoughts become things” philosophy and there is much more to learn. The law of attraction can be an extremely powerful force if you know how to use it and apply it. Go see the movie The Secret or read the book. It is worth it..
