“You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.” ~John C. Maxwell
Do you say yes to all requests for your time? Are you doing the things that are most important to you?
What is the difference between what you do on a daily basis and your mission statement? Are the things on your “to do” list focused on your mission?
So if you say that being fit and healthy is part of your mission (your destination); why aren’t you fitting in fitness regularly? If you are looking for a new job; what did you do today toward that goal?
In her book “Stop Screaming at the Microwave!: How to Connect to Your Disconnected Life” Mary LoVerde proposes a way around the barriers that often prevent us from doing what we know is best. She says “…microactions, these teeny, tiny steps propel us forward without threatening our sense of control. We all hate to be told what to do- even if we are telling ourselves. We need to outfox our resistance to change.”
So where are you headed (have you written your mission statement yet)? What is the first little step can you take today toward your destination? Me? I am putting on my exercise clothes…
“Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned.” ~Peter Marshall
