Get focused forward

Let’s disintegrate that reality.

 

Too easy to get too careless.

Too easy to become distracted.

Too easy to act on a thoughtless

impulse and say or do things

you later regret.

 

But it’s not hard to take accountability.

Not hard to step up to what happened

and make amends if and where you can.

Not hard to relaunch, and once again

get focused forward.

For your number one fan

Scratch your own itch

 

Write the book you want to read.

 

Produce the performance you want to see.

 

Create the product or service you want to use.

 

Scratch your own itch.  Start as the change agent for you.  Do it for your number one fan – you.

 

And with some effort and good fortune, you can become the change agent for many more.

First seek to understand

Learn to listen.

 

We spend years learning to read and write.  Years more to speak

and express our thoughts and ideas.

 

But the art of listening is rarely part of our life’s curriculum.  We’re

under-educated and ignorant in the life skill of paying attention.

 

Learn to listen.  Ask good questions. Be sensitive to another’s point of view. To

be understood, we must first seek to understand.

Leave home

Leave home.

 

Get out.  Go beyond your everyday  sameness.   Leave your comfort zone.

 

You need distance and difference to charge up your creativity and ignite

your imagination.

 

Cut the bars.  Break out of your cage. Find your bigger world.

 

Do it.  Do it for you.

Choose the best

You become the average of

your top five friends.

 

Choose the best.

 

Choose those who bring energy.

 

Choose those who inspire and enable;

who expose you to possibility.

 

Choose those who challenge you to push

through what you once thought impossible.

 

And while you’re at it, don’t forget to let go.

Let go of the toxic, the naysayers, and energy vampires.

Let go of the dream-stealers too.

 

It is, after all, your wonderful life.

Which lie is yours?

“I’m okay the way I am.”

“I don’t really need to change.”

“Things aren’t so bad.”

“I think I can live with this.”

 

Which lie is yours?

Let go

If you want to be cramped and crazy  all your life, be a perfectionist.

 

Perfectionism is the fear of failure disguised as procrastination.  It’s

the voice of the oppressor convincing you that you’re never quite ready.

 

Let go.  Break the bonds of the oppressor. Embrace uncertainty and

imperfection, and in the process find excellence.

But don’t stop there

Build the dream.  Create the vision.  Write the affirmation.

But don’t stop there.

Many do.  Many get stuck at the beginning.  They fail to

finish.

They fail to finish because fulfilling the dream is hard

The hours are long.   Failure shows up.  The work sucks.

Keep going. Those who embrace the suck are those who win.

Measures of gratitude

The best predictions are but matters

of probability rather than certainty.

 

The only future certainty is death.

But the future is not here.

 

What keeps us from happiness today

is our difficulty in fully inhabiting

the present.

 

Rather than fret about tomorrow,

why not find measures of gratitude,

and live completely in today?
