I've heard it said many times, if you enjoy what you're doing, you'll never work a day in your life. As many, many, many people take a day and recognize some event, like TGIF, the weekend, or even a holiday, they are possibly giving up a little bit of their plan. I'm not saying that I don't coordinate my activities with others. I do make plans together, so we can accommodate each others schedules and desires. But I live my life like everyday is a special event. I weave all of the positive emotions throughout my day as much as I possibly can. And, the sweetest times are those spent helping others do the same, and, greatest yet, when theirs is much greater than mine. Oh what a lift it is to feel their joy!
But. I have to have a plan.
My Daily To-Do List = ordered list of have-to-do's (just for example):
- write lesson plan,
- call prospect
- - one habit-making or habit-breaking exercise.
- - eat (ok, those sounds I've been hearing should be quieted, I think)
- - sleep (or am I sleep-walking again? maybe I should have had food earlier than I did, so I'd have more non-adrenalin energy?)
- - breath (yeah, sometimes I actually have to think about this one - it helps me relax, when I take a couple of deep breaths)
- - etc
I try to "Manage yesterday's decisions daily". I'm "all in", so this is a quick process:
- on track,
- Easy, #1. on track.
But, if I stop too long to evaluate the situation, I need to go back and assess my why.
Distractions - see habit-making / habit-breaking (ok, so this habit-making / habit-breaking list is wa-a-ay too long, already; I'll just have to settle for being perfect, just the way I am, and move on, now)
OK, life happens. You just have to "... pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again ..." Everything happens for a reason. Next.
Multi-tasking - who are we kidding? I can only, really, do just one thing at a time. FOCUS!
If the radio station in MY mind is tuned to the "you suck" channel, _I_ have to recognize this NOW! _I_ have control over the ONLY dial. _I_ can switch it to the "you rock" channel. NOW!!
I have already layed-out the organized plan. There is no time to put anything off until later, or tomorrow. I am counting on me. People are counting on me. The world is counting on US.
My desires are DESIRES. They're not fanciful or unimportant wisps of thought. I already have them fulfilled, in my mind, and I WILL have them in my hand and the hands of those that I love.
in gratitude and service,
