Sometimes, it pays to not pay attention. That is, the intensity of the news, the media, all the outside “forces” can distract from your vision, your mission.
It’s oh so easy to be sucked down into the abyss of negative news that you get pulled off track. Your energy and drive gets dampened,even destroyed.
2010 could be the most amazing year. Yes, things are messy everywhere. No one needs a PhD to know that politics are as messy, and as screwed up, as ever; no one needs a PhD to know that the economy isn’t spectaular; and no one needs a PhD to know that people are still doing amazingly stupid things.
With said, What’s working for you? (Hey–waking up and breathing could be the big one today.)
What brings you energy? (My daughter has a new puppy–can you spell energy?)
What do you get excited about? (A new book, movie, seeing a friend, meeting friends for dinner, just having a day off could be #1 today.)
What would you like to start doing right now, if you had a magic wand? (Read that book you got for Christmas, take a trip, hunker down and start that project that has been beckoning for two years, have someone ring your doorbell and announce that they will keep your refrigerator clean for the next year.)
What would you like to stop doing right now, if you had a magic wand? (My job, going to useless meetings, faking it around people I don’t like, wasting time.)
You get the picture. Now, look again at the 5 questions I just asked. Seriously.
