Live your Bucket List like a Samurai! Practice being GREAT at the small things

greyson hawe

Practice being great at the small things, not because you want to be great at the small things, but because you're in training to be great at the BIG things!

In times of stress, we fall to one side or the other ...

We either respond with POWER by drawing on our experience and trusting our instinct 


We respond with weakness borne of unfamiliarity and doubt

Which way we fall, depends greatly on the training we put ourselves through in our daily lives


(Secret: This challenge you're adding to your life is a critical component to achieving Flow.  And Flow leads to a better, happier life)

So in times of peace, we need to train ourselves.  In order to stay sharp for the tough times, we need to make our daily life More Challenging!


We need to live like a Samurai!

We need to increase intensity, precision, and efficiency in our daily lives

Samurai practiced being great at the small things.  They believed the small things ARE the BIG things.  They believed in moving through their world gracefully and with full intention 

No wasted Energy

No wasted Time

No wasted Movement

Preparing and drinking tea was high art.  Getting dressed, polishing their weapons, setting each rock in a rock garden.  They were all considered highly important

Practice moving through your world with maximum effectiveness and full intention

Do the dishes like it matters.  Quickly, efficiently and still do a great job

See if you can make a great sandwich with the fewest body movements

Mow the lawn with the smallest amount of overlapping mow lines as possible

Practice holding your breath.  You never know when that super power will come in handy!

You want to see a true modern Samurai?  Watch this Master Chef take the simple act of making noodles and create high art out of the experience.  Prepare to be amazed and hypnotized.  Every movement, every action focused and with full intention.  Nothing wasted. Not time, energy or scrap dough!

Try to do one thing a day with heightened challenge!  You'll love the feeling.  You're increasing Flow in your life and that’s always a Good Thing!

Now, go live ...

Like A Samurai!
