I subscribe to a daily email from Box of Crayons, and this was today’s thought:
Ulysses asked his crew to tie him to the mast, so he couldn’t be tempted be the songs of the Sirens that would lure him to his death.
What structures might you put in place to stop you being tempted by that which doesn’t serve you?
I have a pretty comfortable daily routine.
I also have three large goals that I’d like to accomplish in the next 5 months.
Those two facts are in direct opposition.
So I’m rethinking my daily structure, considering the ways in which I might be able to make the path to accomplishing those three things a little easier. I’ll admit, there’s a part of my brain that is throwing a huge toddler tantrum about the whole thing. “But I neeeeeeed to decompress after work! And I don’t waaaaaaaant to get up any earlier! This is going to be tooooo haaaaaaarrrrrd. I hate this!”
But if I can actually get into a new routine? I might have something very cool to show for it.
And if I don’t? Well, the world will likely continue to turn, but I have a feeling that I’ll always wonder “what if?”
If you’ve restructured your day to great result, please share your advice! (I can use the help.)
