What does your morning (routine) look like?

giphy

Oh dear, I have no morning routine, except that getting up is like tearing myself from heaven and plunging myself into hell, until I've had a cup of coffee, at which point I have the slightest bit of motivation to get about getting the kids off to school. Then it's to my desk, and dealing with the day.

Purpose is:

Oh this is a long question.

Evolutionarily, biologically, it's to reproduce. But if you want something a bit broader, here is my take:

There is no purpose except the one you want to create. Purpose is teleological, so "meaning' might be a better word. What gives you meaning?

Meaning is of course meaningless, except within the context within which it is defined. So for instance, a table is meaningless at an atomic level (it's just space), and a table is meaningless at a galactic level (it's atomic in size). BUT - at my level - the table that I sit at while I write this is very meaningful because it provides a rest to my arms, and if you hit me over the head with it, it could kill me, which would cause my children great pain.

So meaning is found within context.

What context matters most to you? For me, it is my children. I live because of them. My meaning, and my purpose, is to be a father. Anything else is a bonus.

This law should exist:

§

You should not be able to be verbally abusive to kids. When I see a parent doing that in public, I feel like it's the worst thing in the world.That, or, outlawing Android. Sorry, but it's so BADLY designed, it hurts my eyes. And no, I don't care if you customise it, because customising bad design still makes it bad!

Perseverance is giving up tomorrow, but not today

What are three things you want to learn next?

1. How to build a business. Like, I need to shift from being an artisan to a business owner. I find it hard. I'm trying.

2. I want to learn what I want, and then vocalise it. I find this hard as well, both parts.

3. How to swim. I'm bad at it, and want to be good at it.

Which items should people scratch of their bucket list immediately?

1. Working day and night to get that thing you want, while neglecting your family... "A man who does not spend time with his family can never be a real man" – Don Corleone
2. Disneyland. If you get the chance, take it. But no need to break your back or credit card to get there.
3. Visiting London. I live in the UK, but London just isn't worth it IMO. I'd pick anywhere on the continent over anywhere in the UK.

How can you measure whether an idea is good or bad?
