This Week's Quick Tip
This past week, I was more productive than I've been in a long time. Exercising right. Focused work sessions. Tasks done in half the time than they would have taken in the past.
All thanks to a tweet I read the other day. And it went something like this:
“There’s a version of you that woke up at 7 am without snoozing your alarm, hit the gym, walked 10k steps, got 6 solid hours of work done, read 50 pages, and still had time to watch your favorite TV show.”
Now, I don’t know about you... but this hit me hard.
Why? Because it made me realize that I can accomplish all my goals for the day (and then some) if I just take the time to prioritize what my ideal day looks like. And then go do it.
The thing is, most of the time we underestimate what we can accomplish in a day. I know I do.
So this upcoming week, I encourage you to map out what your ideal day looks like. Then prioritize everything you need to accomplish to make your day a "success." I think you’ll be surprised at just how much you’re able to accomplish when you set your mind to it.
This Week's Find The Good Story
This week’s find the good story is from an anonymous member of our community. Hope it inspires you as much as it inspires us!
“My father passed away last year and it wrecked me. It was the darkest and hardest time of my life trying to navigate my new normal and my life without him.
For weeks, I was functioning on autopilot. But it was through this process I found what helps me find the good. My father was a huge fan of nature, and two months after his passing, I decided to go on a hike in memory of him. I remember hating it at first, second guessing my decisions and wondering if this was my version of a "midlife crisis.” But once I got to the top, I just sat there.
I sat in silence and looked out into the mountains learning to observe and appreciate the small things. I took in the sounds, sights, smells of my environment and it let me feel connected with myself. I remember finally feeling at peace.
That moment was a turning point for me. Since then, I learned to just take it all in and appreciate things for what they are, that there is always a cup half full perspective, and that happiness can be made from the smallest of experiences. You just have to sit and watch.”
