You are what you do. Did you know that?
Some people don’t like to hear that. Some will argue, saying, “I am so much more than what I do!” Really? How so?
The way I see it, a person who spends time teaching is a teacher. One who spends time writing is a writer. One who spends time complaining is a complainer. (Keeping it nice.) And one who spends time restoring art, is an art restorer. (Yes, Anne, this one’s for you!)
We all have struggles and messes and issues and mouths waiting to be fed and bosses who suck and spouses who whine and okay, you get the drift.
But within each and every day, the one thing we have control over, for the most part, is what we choose to do with our time. Where do you put your focus? Tell me what you focus on, and I’ll tell you who you are. There are 1,440 minutes in every day. That means that there are 1,440 decision points in every day. One thousand, four hundred and forty opportunities to be who you want to be.
Yes, planning and preparation are important, as are thinking and reflecting. But action is the critical, rate-limiting step for reaching your full potential. Those of you who have been following my blog for several years know that I am an advocate of personal strategic planning. Well, maybe it’s time for a post about personal strategic execution. Ah. Yes. That sounds nice, doesn’t it?
So I’m off to write another blog post because, well, I’m a blogger. That’s what I do, and I L-O-V-E it! Granted, it’s only one thing that I do, but that’s another post. Stay tuned . . .
Until next time,
