The Achievationers Book :: Chapters I, II

Hereby I start translating an awesome piece of an inspiring read.


Achivation is:

  • to live easily;
  • don’t stop, when it’s tailwind;
  • when each and every wind is tailwind;
  • when you always have “Plan B”;
  • when changes make you glad;

Also it is:

  • to live happily;
  • when desired goals exist everywhere;
  • when you’re always carried to the goals;
  • when you’re always moving;
  • when you know the lifehacks;

‘Achievation’ and ‘achievationer’ are made up words, but pretty much the initial Russian equivalent in the sense of being based on ‘achievement’ word.

An asswrinkler is just the opposite of an achievator. [Translator]

01/ Live lightly

Achievation – is when it’s easy to live.

When it’s easy to live? When you do something and everyone around helps you with that. Or, at least, nothing disrupts you. Everyone and everything. When you don’t exert yourself. When you don’t knock yourself out. When you don’t pee against the wind. When you enter a market at an unknown town – and you’re popular, beloved and respected there already. When the life is like a jennie. Each and every intention is met openly and supported. Applauses and cheering.

What’s when it’s hard to live? Bicycle principle: whenever you go somewhere – always uphill and up the wind. Wind does not blow the required direction and desired direction does not meet with the wind.

living lightly is always like moving downhill and with the tailwind.

Just to use your own energy for your own happiness. For your pleasure.

And to achieve more in your life.

02/ Don’t stop when it’s tailwind

Achievation – not to stop, when it’s tailwind

Follow your AHA-reflex. Don’t think and don’t compare. When you have luck right now – grab it immediately. Speed is the thing, not frowning farsightedness.

Asswrinkler, when offered something “as is, for free”, rejects. As “free cheese is only found in a mousetrap”. Later, being sorry about the rejection. What if that was not a mousetrap?

Like in a joke. There was a religious comrade, which when the Flood started, prayed the Lord to save him. There was one boat trying to help him, and another, and yet another one and he rejected all of them: “God will save me” – he said. And when he finally drowned, he asked the Lord: “Why you haven’t helped me?”, and got the answer: “Dude, why do you think those boats were sent?”. So grab your luck immediately.

How it usually happens? Stuff is sold cheaply, but right now. Who reacts immediately – wins. Some will crank up on it later. When you can do it right now  – that helps. And costs less.

On the other side, “don’t stop when it’s tail wind” is also about where are you right now. Right now is the thing here. Even if you haven’t bought a toy, still, you trained your desirilator organ. Like you chose one, walking to a cash desk and *BANG* – you now think it inspires you no longer. And like two feet away from the cash desk. Asswrinkler will make the purchase, as the decision was made already! Achievationer will just turn around and walk away. Changed their mind! Unwrap the thing.

‘Desirilator’ is made up to be close to ‘desire’. Desire is the very reason to achieve things.[Translator]

You don’t need to think. Figure out.
