Time for Your “Mind Gym” – How’s Your Balance Sheet Like?



I’d like to pay a tribute to that little “accountant” in you, today; and I randomly chose this one from long lists. Yes, you may not have noticed that part in you doing all sorts of calculations each time you choose, but that part of you exists. It hides at the corner of your mind; speaking in high and low pitch. In various decision-making it assists.

That little accountant keeps semi-invisible balance sheets issued when there’s a need; and instantly upon request. If you examine all issues that you previously addressed, you’d find that you directly or indirectly weighed pros and cons to find answers for your action-taking quests.

The cost-benefit assessment thought process is rarely an uninvited guest. It is what we do when we’re mostly distressed. Try something different, give up a pursuit, or persist until you attain your goal are but a few dilemma that could have made your mind unrest.

Pick and choose any area in your life: your job, your romantic relationship, your friends, a project you’re working on, or any other feat…. All would not get resolved without resort to that guiding balance sheet. Go on…. Bring it forward from its back-seat. Review the account of each in terms of pleasure versus pain; loss versus gain; compliments versus complaints; latitude versus restraints. What sort of a picture does that accountant paint?

“Knowingly or not, when you assess and decide, your mind runs a balance sheet script. It could be that last well-thought of entry that triggers a 180 degrees flip.” ~3Ds

Don’t forget to include the long term effects. Remember, as well, to consider other human ecological complications and defects. If these are difficult to calculate, use a lump sum as an estimate.

You may need to re-examine and exhaust all “givens” when your balance sheet shows a dilemma par. And if you remain stuck, flip a coin to allow fate to be your guiding star….

After all, and despite some previous erroneous operations, that little accountant in you is gaining expertise by the minute for all balance sheet consultations. It will continue to do all calculations for future situations.

Oh…. and perhaps you need to cross out any fear factor entry because it’s usually loaded with flaws…. It never was, or will be, a motivator to any worthy cause…..

Sending your little accountant a big round of applause,

Your Personal Coach

    Oh my, so do I need to schedule surgery to excise the little accountant?? All kidding aside, I never thought of my process of weighing pros and cons in that way, but it’s a good way to think of it. I also like the part about tossing a coin when we get stuck. I am always balancing my practical side with my creative/artsy side so after endless examination, and re-examination of the pros and cons, when I can’t make up my mind no matter what, I end up tossing a coin more or less anyway. Now I will tell myself that this is fine!!!

        It is frustrating, Dania, I know, when we work hard to write articles and nobody, or few people, bother to comment. I am not sure what the answer is but hope that there are many silent readers out there. Won’t you come forward and say something if you are one of those silent readers? Just a couple of words? Dania has so many good things to say. She deserves some feedback! I am gong to switch soon to a self hosted wordpress site with hopes that I can find ways there to engage more people with my blog.

          Yes, sometimes it is frustrating not to have readers 😦 but the way I’m dealing with it is now I have a conviction that I am writing because I enjoy it. My articles are all there if anyone would like to catch up at some point. I’m just refining my skill until I’m discovered by a bigger audience 🙂 🙂 I find it hard to beg for people to comment 😉 🙂
          The self-hosted wordpress site seems new to me. I hope it serves your purpose 🙂 please keep me posted on how it goes 🙂 🙂
          I appreciate your presence in my life always Iris 🙂 🙂 Thaaaanks for your continuous support 🙂 🙂
