Anonymous asked: What advice would you give regarding commitment? Not just relationship wise, but having the commitment to do homewrok, exercise, play an instrument, etc? And not being lazy to do things for that matter.
I’m going to quote Rory Miller on this, with a quote I posted a while back too:
"Develop the habit of doing unpleasant things quickly, efficiently and without hesitation.
If you are going to jump in the cold water, jump. If you need to get up, get your ass out of bed. Do the dishes that need doing. Finish the hard jobs at work while everyone else is finding excuses to get out of them.
Like applying force, all your agonizing should be concentrated on if you should do something, once that is decided, do it.
The ability to do this amazes mere mortals. It almost qualifies as a superpower.”
This. Always realize that the commitment to the thing itself isn’t the only thing that’s important, it’s the ability ‘to’ commit that you are training, the actual habit of being disciplined that you should work on.
Reblogging so I remember.
Amazon testing drones for deliveries
Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer, is testing unmanned drones to deliver goods to customers, Chief Executive Jeff Bezos says. The drones, called Octocopters, could deliver packages weighing up to 2.3kg to customers within 30 minutes of them placing the order, he said. However, he added that it could take up to five years for the service to start. The US Federal Aviation Administration is yet to approve the use of unmanned drones for civilian purposes. “I know this looks like science fiction, but it’s not,” Mr Bezos told CBS television’s 60 Minutes programme. “We can do half-hour delivery… and we can carry objects, we think, up to five pounds (2.3kg), which covers 86% of the items that we deliver.” (via BBC News - Amazon testing drones for deliveries)
