Thursday’s Thought: What Are You Waiting For?

Ezra Pound Quote - A slave

Today’s Thought: What Are You Waiting For?

Key Question: What if they don’t show up?

Waiting is a pathology often influenced by faith. Faith that one day, some day, up ahead, then, when — everything is going to be. If it’s not, it must mean it wasn’t supposed to be, or, it isn’t time yet.

That type of thinking will burn through years of your life before you wake up and realize what you’ve been waiting on has been waiting on you.

Today’s the Day

What would you do different if what or who you were waiting on showed up today? I suggest you go to work doing that right now just in case they don’t show.

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.” — Ezra Pound

Don’t Mistake Movement for Progress

Just Because You're busy (3)

Wednesday’s Wisdom: Don’t Mistake Movement For Progress.

Today, take a look at where you are spending your time and energy. Just because you’re busy doesn’t mean you’re getting anything done.

Reprioritize.

Spend major energy on major tasks. Spend minor energy on minor tasks. At the end of the day, examine your results. Celebrate honest productivity. Learn from complacency.

Pay Attention To Avoidance.

Pay attention to avoidance.  Avoidance is often instruction incognito. The things we avoid, are usually the very things we need to pursue.

While we are away from our office all we can think about is getting that huge project done. The moment we are back at our desk, it seems we are consumed with doing everything but what that project requires us to do.

It’s easy to see it. It’s harder to do it.

Celebrate Authentic Accomplishment.

Make a list. Check it twice. Celebrate authentic accomplishment – the things you wanted to do, and did. Reward yourself only for authentic genuine effort that resulted in progress.

Keep it real. Just because you’re busy, doesn’t mean you’re getting anything done.

How Tall Will A Tree Grow?

How tall will a tree grow? As tall as it possibly can. Have you ever heard of a tree growing half? No. A tree doesn’t grow half. A tree grows as tall as it possibly can.

How tall should you grow?

How much money should you make?

How much should you accomplish?

How much should you learn?

Answer? As MUCH as you possibly can!

You weren’t born to just get by, you were born to succeed; to do all you possibly can.
