I know, I know. It’s a new day.Yesterday may have sucked, but screw that, today’s here! With all the bells and whistles. Oh, you’re gonna do so much. First, you’ll get your workouts back. Then, you’ll improve how you work. You’ll see more, live more, get more done. And, of course, you’ll finally start writing. Except you’re not doing 2020-you a favor with any of this. Let alone 2030-you. God knows about 2050. But this? Forget it. It’s a charade. You don’t need motivation. You never did. What you need are rational habits. Patterns that make sense. When it comes to your health, brushing your teeth is a rational habit. That one’s obvious enough, so we do it. Sleeping 7–8 hours a night? A much tougher sell already. But it’s just as rational.

The topic of self-help has grown increasingly popular in the past years amongst both believers and unbelievers alike. There are books, blogs, podcasts, magazine, and social media accounts dedicated to learning how to take care of yourself in a loving way. Not to say self-help is bad, but there comes a point where believers need to ask themselves if they are replacing Gods help with self-help. Greg Morse recently pointed out the dangers of investing too much time in self-help, while ignoring the help that God has provided for us. “Can we learn anything from the self-help movement? Why does this placebo help some? Many will line up to testify of its cure-all power. What’s in the snake oil?” Morse asks. He expounds upon these questions and examines the way the self-help

However, these qualities can never stay for long in your nature if you are not feeling motivated. Right? You discontinue doing things in which you do not feel inspired and energised.

If you were renting Apollo 13 at your local Blockbuster in 1995, you likely had no idea the video rental industry was about to dramatically change. But, Reed Hastings had another idea. Conflicting reports say the idea for Netflix was born from Hastings being charged a $40 late fee for that very movie. While the company’s co-founder Marc Randolph reportedly claimed it began when he and Hastings discussed creating “the Amazon.com of something.” Whatever the real story is, one thing is clear: Entrepreneurs are wired differently than the rest of us. They believe they can do things better, cheaper and more efficiently. When they mobilize those ideas into action, revolutions are born. And when their marketing follows that same wavelength, magic happens. Rebellion Is Nothing New Whe
