The timeframe gives it focus and yields potency. The scope is purposefully broad to observe the effects of applying the lesson to various situations. Since the common denominator in every situation is always me, I get to experience more of myself in relationship to the lesson from those various perspectives.
My motto for this week: good day, bad day, same day. Everyday counts.
I'm a chronic procrastinator. In the absence of a parent, teacher or boss breathing down my neck, I have to motivate myself to work to my capacity. To apply the lesson of the week, it is my aim to do what I can do tomorrow, today; and in so doing, reverse the cycle of procrastination.
Beyond the scope of "work", this concept adds tremendous value to everyday when everyday counts.
In my last year of college, I took on a challenge to live the next year of my life as though it was my last. I resolved to make that year count. During that following year, I moved to Hawaii, learned to surf, started practicing yoga and took advantage of every opportunity to challenge myself. In that window of a year, I acquired a taste for seizing the moment and living life to capacity.
When everyday counts, the days that count add up... into weeks, months, years, decades; into a lifetime that counts.
So what's your motto?
