Proficient

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

Sometimes people don’t want to try something new because they think they it will take too long to become proficient at the task. It doesn’t matter how long it takes to figure things out; it matters that you start.

It can take a lifetime to achieve the proficiency you want.

So many times we wait too long.

The start doesn’t have to be perfect–there is no perfect time.

You don’t have to be perfect at the task.

You don’t have to be proficient in a day month year or 50 years.

You just need to enjoy it.

An Unmade Bed

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

One day a couple of weeks ago I didn’t make my bed. I hated that I left the house with the bed unmade.

It bothered me as I walked out the door and drove away but I had to get to my first customer so it was too late to do it now.

When it was time for my lunch break I came back home starved and ready to eat then remembered I forgot to make the darn bed. I knew I didn’t want to end the day with it still unmade so before lunch I made it and felt much better.

Call me obsessive, well maybe a little but the truth is I feel like life goes better when I get that bed made. It starts my day off right because that one task gets done. It gives me the feeling that I can take on the next one no matter what it is because I took the time to make the bed.

Your Task

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
