Why You Should Have a Field Manual for Your Life

To be effective, the manual should follow three key principles:

  1. It should be simple and fit on a single page, e.g. as a bulleted list of operating procedures.
  2. It should be prioritised in a strategic order that you can start executing tomorrow.
  3. It should be reviewed, evaluated, and understood by everyone crucial to the mission.

Flow / Flow State

Flow State Article

What is “Flow” State?

In positive psychology, a flow state, also known colloquially as being in the zone, is the mental state in which a person performing some activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterized by the complete absorption in what one does, and a resulting transformation in one’s sense of time.

“Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”

To fret about things outside of your power is like trying to whip back the tides or yell back a typhoon. An exercise in futility. Far better to disregard events that are very real but are ultimately beyond our control, and use the saved time and effort to double down on happenings we can actually influence instead.

Practice letting things go. Practice letting things flow.
This is how you live a life free of undue worry.

Keep in mind that thousands of brave Greeks died in vain trying to storm the tall walls of Troy, but all it took was wily Ulysses one night with a wooden horse to burn the city to the ground. Another great example would be this: If you ask a high-level martial artist what his favourite punch is, he will likely answer, “The one that connects.”

Be easy going and adaptable, but also be forceful when needed…

Change your focus from doing everything to doing one small improvement every day. Kaizen.


The Japanese word kaizen means “change for better”, without inherent meaning of either “continuous” or “philosophy” in Japanese dictionaries and in everyday use. The word refers to any improvement, one-time or continuous, large or small, in the same sense as the English word “improvement”. – From Wikipedia


Athletes train seriously year-round for YEARS before they peak & hit their top #’s. It takes years of dedication.

Step by step. Inch by inch. One inch today, one inch tomorrow…They don’t just show up one day and expect to be the best in the world. They do show up everyday & expect to hit their training #’s.

For every # hit in training is one step closer to the next PR.

“Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying- I will try again tomorrow.” Do what you can today- fight & recover properly. Then, repeat that knowing consistency is the key. It takes time.

Set your goals daily & achieve those. Repeat.

Rome wasn’t built in a day! But, it was built every single day for years and years.

Patience, your time WILL come.

Avoid burnout utilzing Yin &. Yang 

Yang energy is about doing, building, outward focus. Very American, western vibe. Conquering, growing a buisness, Hustle, etc…  (Aka: Performance)

Yin energy is the opposite, receptive, creative, relaxing, inward focus, making yourself better. (Aka: Potential)

Without both energies in your work, you will find no matter how much you create it will begin to fall apart without the other side in place as well. Build with the full equation in place. 

Example: Recovery should be just as focused and executed as the effort you put into your workout. 

How do you find balance and “flow”. 

There is no hack, don’t fall for short-term tricks and hacks. You need to practice wholeness every day. Every human interaction is an opportunity to practice Yin/Yang. Stop, breathe, think, then respond. Even in the small mundane everyday interactions.
