When Your Life Changes

Being on time is a challenge for everyone

Behaviors trump intentions. You can (and should) organize your mantras.

Being on time is a challenge for everyone.

It’s not impossible to be on time.

But you do have to change the way you live your life.

Some starters:

  • Leave early.
  • Plan travel time based on the speed limit then add another 10 minutes.
  • Make 10 minutes early as “on time”.
  • Make “on time” as late.
  • And make “late” unacceptable.

Clear expectations and predictable accountability always yield much better results than unclear expectations and little to no accountability.

Sometimes, the obvious is too unpleasant to think about and too challenging to put into habitual practice.

Carving Out A Life

Like the unstoppable movement of the Ocean’s tide

Logi Circle home security cameras
Each company offers something slightly different. It’s interesting to experience it rather than reading about it.

 

Philips Hue digital home life systems
Philips Hue home systems offer wireless lightbulbs. Wow.

 

Like the unstoppable movement of the Ocean’s tide, our to-do list ebbs and flows.

But mostly it flows.

Why?

Because we are creative thinkers, and we never cease to have ideas – ideas that can make our life’s challenges get better or go away.

And in this never-ending idea generation, we forget the basics and we forget simplicity.

Because we forget, we continuously overwhelm ourselves.

And so it goes.

PS. Just look at your inbox or desk if you need proof. The basics? Keep our in box empty. Keep our desk uncluttered. Everyday.

Ps. There will be exceptions. Be extremely cautious though, exceptions have an insidious way of becoming the standard.

Organized to stop and watch on the way to Magic Kingdom meeting

Florida Sand Hill Cranes
The other day leaving our driveway for an errand.

 

Heading to Magic Kingdom for lunch. Was not in a hurry and had time at the end of our driveway to watch this Family for two minutes. The parents have red heads. The juveniles do not. The one in the middle was applying clay (water puddle at it’s feet) to it’s feathers.

Had i not been organized, i would have been in a rush to make the meeting on time, and there would be no photo of this encounter. In fact, there would have been no encounter.

Make It Simple

A growing to-do list with no end in sight?

A growing to-do list with no end in sight?

The paperwork of life doesn’t end until we die.

This can be overwhelming.

Simplicity is an uphill battle.

What are you convinced is worth defending?

What are you convinced is worth defending?

Being decently organized?

How organized is enough?

Enough to survive day to day?

Enough to be able to thrive daily?

For 60 consecutive days i’ve taken on a new challenge of not having any emails in the inbox, sent, and trash folders when i go to bed.

Zero.

To start the day with a clean slate would feel like __________ to you?
