Just a minute

Glacier National Park
GNP. Chief Mountain.

It is difficult to live in the present, ridiculous to live in the future and impossible to live in the past. Nothing is as far away as one minute ago.

Day To Day

Never plan on perfect days

Leaky faucet
If not for taking a short cut through the backyard yesterday, would have never seen this cracked metal faucet. The repair took an hour that interrupted last night’s plans.
Amazon truck driving across front yard
Delivery truck drove across our yard to lessen the walk to the front door.
Glacier postcards
The number of cards and postcards sent out this week is astonishing.

The paperwork of life. 

Having intentional margin in each day allows for unexpected events to be handled without going into crisis-mode.

When Your Life Changes

Being on time is a challenge for everyone

behaviors trump intentions
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.
