When you are awake and energetic it’s somehow tempting to watch movies and not to write-blog and read books because the feeling of watching movies with your full attention is nearly passive or static in some degree at the same time visually and audio stimulating unlike the experience of writing-blogging and reading books combined.
I have nothing against watching movies with your full attention because I love watching movies with full attention.
I just don’t watch movies with full attention on a day-to-day or night-to-night basis and weekly basis.
Me and Mr. Jack Ma of Alibaba have something in common when it comes to watching movies with full attention, we find time to watch movies with full attention by scheduling them because we get a lot of life-changing ideas when we watch movies with full attention but not on a day to day or night to night basis and weekly basis.
That’s the beauty and magic. You develop the strong habit of delayed gratification and you get stronger with discipline.
Writing-blogging and reading books with full attention and watching movies with full attention but scheduling them in a more resourceful, productive, and disciplined manner is highly rewarding and fulfilling.
You can try them if you are determined to do new worthwhile changes in your life. Be creative, innovative, and resourceful.
