Sidchas lead to achievement like nothing else

Interviewers tend to ask me two questions:

  1. What’s with all the burpees?
  2. How did you do all the accomplishments?

They don’t realize that doing the sidchas is what achieves the accomplishments.

I wouldn’t have expected that connection before starting the sidchas. I can’t really explain it now, but I know that doing the sidchas gets the other things done.

From the outside you might see sidchas as taking time and attention from what others value and can measure.

On the contrary, what gets difficult things done isn’t time, money, or other resources. What gets difficult tasks done is the same as what creates time, money, and other resources:

  • Intent
  • Discipline
  • Inspiration
  • Dedication
  • Perseverance
  • Resilience
  • Practice

and skills like that. No one is born with those skills. You have to develop them. Anyone who has them developed them through practice.

Sidchas develop those skills. Accomplishment follows.
