I am about 12,000 kms from home at present. Tired, not grumpy. Thinking – “now keeping up with my posts will be a challenge”.
Then a thought came to mind – something i promote to others – create space.
So I have options. Struggle and persist to get a high quality post out, or refocus the post within the time I have to keep the quality and keep my commitment – and honour yours.
So much of our life is about being organised. Organised to do not what needs doing but organised to do things that will help transform the present.
It is that shift in thinking that makes the difference. Not what needs to be done, “what will transform and am I giving it time?”
I read recently of an exec who rises at 4 a.m. to do an hour of meditation, and hour of exercise and an hour with family. Then he is charged – or recharged for the day.
His space, his senses of organisation isn’t just about ‘sleep’ in fact it is almost the opposite.
It is about creating space to do the things which best add up to free you as a human being with enormous potential.
So think about space, think about organisation, think about being so close to being at your potential that it hurts. Because that is what I’ll be thinking about this week while i am away – and something tells me that is where all the joy is.
tomorrow I hope to blog about joy or despair – given that in 8 hours I’ll be touching down in Amsterdam – about 2 hours before the world cup kick-off.
thanks everyone for sticking by me. I’ll honour that commitment with pleasure.
PS no photo unless my wonderful partner puts one up for me 🙂
