What is life?

I’m attempting to get back into regular posts..  I found that regular shares were increasing my ability to stay motivated and on track.  I have a new Nexus 7 tablet that is a wondrous tool. It am almost afraid to admit that I’d give up all my other computing devices if I could keep just this single one.

I find that life is a strange animal.  It’s easy to complain about being stressed out,  or not having enough time in the day to get through things done that we want to do.   But once we have that time,  we tend to procrastinate.  Once we have that freedom and flexibility of a steady 9-5 job,  we tend to look for distractions and excuses to why we still aren’t chasing our dreams.

So life is something that happens when you aren’t doing anything else. That’s the easiest way to demonstrate time,  as it encompasses the helplessness we expect exercise over controlling its passing.

We all want to be this person we have in our minds eye. A bit thinner,  a bit healthier,  someone who gets daily exercise,  is a whiz at the piano,  or a world traveller..

So choose one.

That’s right. Choose something you are curious about,  then break it into 12 manageable milestones.

Write down the first one, and figure out how to make it happen over the next 30 days. You might not be successful,  but that’s not the goal of the exercise. Instead,  it gets you into the mindset.

Over the next few 30 day segments,  you’ll start to visualize how to actually make your dream a reality..  By involving even 5 minutes of each day in this fascinating activity,  it’s motivation will also spill out into other areas of your routine

Go ahead and give it a go..
