had some interesting comments to make about my last two posts, bringing up the distinction between discipline, which I'd been discussing, and energy. I think both topics are actually necessary, and in my case directly related via the problem I'm trying to address.
Discipline is structure; the energy is what is contained and focused by the structure. If the structure has a hole, or is misaligned, it can't hold the energy, which leaks out. End result: I have no energy, and I have this weighty structure to carry around, which takes even *more* energy. And now holds none.
It takes energy to rebuild the structure. Rebuilt, it can store and focus energy. Bootstrapping problem. Need to find activation energy. Must remember to use the energy to rebuild the energy structure rather than using it directly for immediate work, or the problem will remain.
I need to talk through what kind of structure to build and how to build it. Anyone here with expertise in that? I work better by phone than email; call me at 732-249-4034 or email your number to polydad8 at yahoo dot com if you can. I've had comments on the subject from England and Australia, and yes I *am* willing to make international calls if it'll help address this problem.
