I am an achiever. Always have been, probably always will be; and while that’s not a bad thing, like anything taken to excess, it can be detrimental. Where my achievement mentality steers me wrong is when it takes over my weeks. It’s Wednesday and I have found myself doing three weeks worth of work in one week. The problem is that I did this to myself last week and have scheduled next week to look the same. As I would tell my clients, it’s not acceptable. So, today I’m taking ownership.
I don’t have anything ground breaking to share today other than sharing with you that I am focusing on simplicity. There’s something so very beautiful about simplicity, it’s the kind of beauty that can evade you if you’re not paying attention. I haven’t paid attention much recently, and in turn I have suffered. I haven’t gotten to write as often as I like, I haven’t felt well, and I have found myself looking forward to the end of the day instead of relishing in the joy of living.
It stops now. I take ownership and living IN the day starts again for me right now.
Pay attention. Take ownership. Slow down. Simplify.
