One of the biggest challenges I have found in Internet marketing is actually getting on with the work you need to do without getting distracted.
The snow this Christmas has been fantastic, with the children having a wonderful time sleighing down a nearby hill. Having broken totally the normal patterns of daily life and joining in with their fun and laughter I found myself thinking over my own actions of the year and thinking about what actually makes for success. It started with being a little tired of all the ‘guru dependence’ that I have personally wasted my time on, but thinking about why it works for some and not others.
Of all the equations known to man I think Einstein’s equation of E equals m c squared to be one of the most famous. Now this article is nothing but an exercise in free writing and using the equation as a focus. I love the equation and what it means but I will not pretend to be a scientist or tell anyone that I see profound things within it, I am just using this as a simple exercise and seeing what comes up. Not having the ability to know whether the equation is in fact 100% true means only that I must accept it and think through what any of the implications are.
Like a flickering candle in the solar wind of a dying star the terms are created.
However, caught in the ice of time the candle appears steady, radiating peacefully the false hope of eternal abundance.
A flame is frozen peacefully from the storm by the coolness of a universe ticking slowly from one consequence to another.
Billions of lives shoot up in this fire, self-important and noisy, achieving and striving but eating itself in absence.
Christmas is coming as you finish off the last things bits of shopping you need to take you into the New Year. The shops begin to look a bit beaten up now with the many that have traipsed through all their aisles and certainly the bargains of the season are left only with bright decals below empty shelves, showing once what was there. The weather turns, giving in to the snows of the season and adds to the shivery festive feeling of what promises to be a really happy time of the year. You imagine the faces that light up on the day of giving; you imagine the warm conversations with friends not seen for a while, the parties, the music and the fun. You wrap up well, comforted by the images of all these possibilities knowing that you have prepared for it as best as you can.
I don’t know why I am writing this but it is something that I have always strongly felt, but I never really knew what to do with it. It is what I wish for everyone, everyone I know, and everyone I don’t. It is a feeling that I believe in with all my heart and I think my soul, though the definition of where it comes does escape me.
