And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
An eternity in an hour.."

time management

  • have separate week-, month- and year-scope planners to keep track of the big picture amongst the hectic of your every day experiences and tasks.
  • make a (manageable) to-do list every day. rank items based upon priority.
  • schedule distractions: try and work 45 minutes for every 15 minute break. breaks should mean physically removing yourself from your work/study environment.
  • schedule at least one, three-hour block of studying at the library every week. try to let this be a reading block and avoid technology if possible.
  • plan your meals at least a few days in advance to accommodate a busy schedule. make lunches the night before to leave more time each morning to manage your to-do list and morning routine.
  • facebook should be avoided during working...

  • master your thoughts through understanding. consider their origins by asking yourself questions. "why do I think this?" "why is this valuable to me?" "what is a healthier alternative to this way of thinking?" be vigilant in this effort, but kind to yourself.
  • refuse finding personal identity/worth in material things. deny the power of capitalistic living. deny the power of the purely decorative.
  • understand dependency as a human being upon the rest of creation. find humility in this, show respect for the other beings that provide for the human population. reject a hierarchy of life in which humans sit atop.
  • work to understand the natural world and it's processes. respect the sovreignty of other beings and adjust self processes to reflect this respect.

  • "Two years he walks the earth. No phone, no pool, no pets, no cigarettes. Ultimate freedom. An extremist. An aesthetic voyager whose home is the road. Escaped from Atlanta. Thou shalt not return, 'cause "the West is the best." And now after two rambling years comes the final and greatest adventure. The climactic battle to kill the false being within and victoriously conclude the spiritual pilgrimage. Ten days and nights of freight trains and hitchhiking bring him to the Great White North. No longer to be poisoned by civilization he flees, and walks alone upon the land to become lost in the wild." — Alexander Supertramp, May 1992
