This week really spoke with me. I have a few amazing days in my week – exactly those where I complete my homework first thing, look at my A, and DO IT NOW! I feel amazing once it’s complete and the rest of my day is set up to succeed.
Then one or two days in the week, my comfort zone takes over. A gets replaced by E and F (something that keeps me ‘busy’ but is not where I should be spending my time). The day ends where I’m beating myself up and disappointed in me. Even more so because I know my fears are unfounded and that I’m limiting my own potential.
I am beyond excited to learn how the five words can be used as tools and know to leave yesterday in the past and focus only on the immediate day. I also know to not be so hard on myself; each amazing day is a slight improvement from the one before and it is doing its part to increase my comfort zone. I’m definitely a work in progress and fill focus on my new index cards.
At 49, I’m just over half of my 90 years on this earth. Only 41 more summers here, and even less of those will I be able to enjoy riding my motorcycle on the open road. How many of those beautiful days will I have to spend sitting in front of my desk because I’ve wasted the days before not completing A? And how long will I need to wait to enjoy the summer days because to took me so long to get started??
When will I begin?
