I usually do but today I have no motivation. Some days I am just not grateful for lessons learned.Today is one of the first beautiful days of the year. It is 80 degrees outside! I have NO need for a coat. I want to go outside & play. I stood for a moment with another entrepreneur friend & we watched the easy going slow pace that so many on the hot city streets are moving at today. For only few moments, we stopped. A quick shake off of the feathers & we were back to work mode. I’d rather lazily wander the streets of this city. I do not want to work on the costume or, market anything or return e-mails or create the rehearsal work plan or anything else I need to work on for that matter. And yet, I will.
In spite of how I feel, I will still do what is on the ‘to do’ list to be done for this day. Today is not one of those days where I am not mentally overshadowed. I can actually choose to work in spite of what I feel like doing. How I chose to do it however, is at a much slower pace. I am not trying to finish everything quickly so I can move onto the next list item. I am working on one thing at a time. It does not lessen what needs to be done. However, I feel much calmer doing it.
Here’s to taking deep breaths & slowing down the pace. There will always be more to do. I have accepted that the list will never do done. It simply gets adjusted.
These moments remind me both of the need to slow down & take a full stop sometimes as well as the ability to keep it moving in spite of mood.
Here’s to a great week! What is everyone up to?
