Planning For Eternity

963.1Question: The discipline called time management includes some tips and rules. The first rule is: “Feel every day as if it is the last.” Is this correct from your point of view?

Answer: You can relate to time in this way,  or, conversely, feel everything as one eternal day.

Question: In order to identify important things, is it advisable to take each day as if it were the last? If I felt this way, would I only do correct and important things?

Answer: Yes, but this is very conditional.

Question: The second rule is: plan and set goals. Is it worth making plans for more than a day or a week? Does it make sense to plan for a month, for a year?

Answer: I make plans for infinity. I am saying this quite seriously.

I make plans as if I have a life ahead of me, an unlimited number of years. If a person thinks about the end, he cannot properly program himself.

Question: The most important thing is the final goal and everything should proceed from it?

Answer: Yes, even if it does not fit into this life.

Question: How do you determine what is important now at the moment? Suppose there are several cases that need to be resolved. What method do you use to solve this? Is there any criterion?

Answer: Life itself determines it by putting huge responsibilities in front of me: giving lessons from three to six in the morning, participating in filming programs from ten to one in the afternoon, then meeting with my group three times a day, and so on. My day is practically full.

Question: But when a person has to perform several actions at the same time, he has to prioritize what is important and what is not. How do you do it?

Answer: Only based on one criterion: is it more important for the world or for me.
