Today ~ Day 6:

My angle:
Live in time (focus, work, immersion) and outside of time (divine inspiration, don’t worry about how long or short it takes) at the same time (to achieve the finished result I want).

The mystical angle:

The Magic Tapestry:
"Still, she kept on weaving day and night. Then at the end of the third year the mother went to her sons and declared, 'My work is finished!' And there it all was—the most heavenly tapestry ever made. Flowers shimmered with threads of brilliant sunlight and little animals danced magically throughout the woven pattern. The tapestry seemed to breathe with life."

The Trump angle:

Donald Trump in
The Art of the Deal: "Think Big. One of the keys to thinking big is total focus…almost a controlled neurosis, which is a quality I’ve noticed in many highly successful entrepreneurs. They’re obsessive, they’re driven, they’re single-minded…but it’s all channeled into their work. Where other people are paralyzed by neurosis, the people I’m talking about are actually helped by it. I don’t say this trait leads to a happier life, or a better life, but it’s great when it comes to getting what you want."
