As of late, I’ve felt like I have been falling short in a lot of areas of my life. Phone calls aren’t being returned as quickly as they should, requests from friends and family are being put on the back burner, the quality of my work is subpar, and Mr. Harvey has spent one too many hours entertaining himself while I stare at my computer screen for yet another hour.
I’ve made so many personal claims that “I will change, I will correct, I will be more focused,” but I’ve backed out of every promise. Typical.
So as we enter the new summer season, I declare it a fresh start and clean slate.
As you downsize your to do list, you leave more room and time to become focused on the projects and tasks that matter most. This post from Build a Little Biz (via The Veda House) really helped to set things into perspective for me. It’s not about jumping from one task to another like a game of hopscotch. It is now a game of paying close attention and improving the quality of my work, and in turn, my daily life.
My dad always used to tell me, “It’s not worth doing unless you try to do it well,” and I think it is about time I apply that to my life…some 20+ years later. Good thing my mom always told me “better late than never.”
I hope it is a thought full weekend for everyone!
