It’s been said there are 1440 choices in a day, which correlates to how many minutes there are in a day. You don’t have to wait for the next day, the next week, the first of next month to make a change and make a difference.
Start with that next minute out of 1440 in the day. Take stock of where you are in life and decide three things. What am I going to start? What am I going to stop? What am I going to continue? Write them down. Put them on a mirror in your bathroom so it is the first thing you see when you wake up and the last thing you see when you go to bed.
I’ll share first. One thing I’m going to start is if it takes more than three text messages back and forth, I’m picking up the phone and calling the person I am communicating with. The written word is so misconstrued sometimes and that’s not what we want our communication to be with anyone, especially if it’s someone you care about. This is vitally important, especially if you can see your text communication is taking a downward spiral.
Engage them face to face, let them hear the tonality in your words and theirs to you so you can truly communicate.
Stop is something I wish for you. Stop dwelling on things you can’t control. Half of the things we worry about never come to pass. There’s too much else at risk…your future, your health, your time. Focus on what you CAN control.
Continue. I’m going to continue to do my best, to make a difference. Writing articles on my blog and continuing my #LiveAt755 video series. I implore you to do to continue one thing that you currently do that makes you a better you. Pick something, stick with it and move yourself forward.
Take this minute right now, this one in 1440. Decide what you are starting. Commit to what you are stopping. Continue that which propels yourself as an individual forward.
