The Zen of Useful Shortcuts and How To Quit Smoking
As we both know, "how to quit smoking" is not the easiest task.
When people, personally, ask how to quit smoking, the steps are easy enough,
whether you quit smoking cold turkey,
or you can succeed by smoking less each day,
no less than eighty to ninety percent of your success in either quitting or not,
is found within the desire and decision.
The deisre to quit, and so much more, the decision to take action,
the decision to not only learn HOW to quit smoking, and how to quit smoking forever,
much more than that it's the decision to take the first step. Not the second, or third.
Any human being who succeeds at the first step has demonstrated and proven,
with nothing more or less than a single decision and a single action,
that the next step is achievable. That first step is everything.
AFTER you make the decsion to quit smoking,
then and only than are you likely to succeed.
The Zen of Useful Shortcuts applauds,
and cheers, your determined to look.
Now let's act by skipping 1 smoke.
Is that reasonable enough?
Excellent - that's progress.

Stop allowing others to run your life.
Even when we work for other people, we still have quite a few personal hours per week,
hours that belong exclusively to you and your dreams and the music inside you.
For crying out loud, stop letting other people step on your dreams!
There is more inside of you; much more.
The Bodyscan Health Route hopes you bring more out in healthy, natural ways.
The Bodyscan Health Route is free because it's already inside of you.
Here, we just try to nudge a bit more from your untapped inner potential.
The Zen of Useful Shortcuts is used to open the doors that await your entrance.
If it's only two of those discretionary hours per week, USE THEM PROFITABLY!
Whether it's a personal interest, family, community, or gneerating income,
those one hundred or more minutes per week will pay you plenty,
in fact, if you actually enjoy what you in those minutes,
they will most likely provide you with more than...
are you ready for this? ... no exaggeration:
those discretionary minutes are very inclined
to bring you more than all your other hours... combined!
Writing essays, poems, or books, hand-crafting with art,
singing, improving the lives of other people who have less than you:
there is no known limit. WHATEVER you do with passion pays you off the most.
It's a perfect rule of life, in comfortable symmetry with your rules of the Universe,
or as the more pragmatic among you might realize, the physical laws of Isaac Newton.
FACT: What you know means little and produces less to those around you and yourself.
What you DO with what you know fascinates us. Do more with what you know.
The returns are fast and many.
The Zen of Useful Shortcuts loves you.
As a result, so does the Bodyscan Health Route !
