Here’s a quick “video” tip we created during a ride on Rachelle’s Dutch bike this morning (Saturday). Have fun riding down the hill with us, then enjoy the brief thoughts on creating more “white space”, margin, and unscheduled time in your day and your week. Would love to hear your own experience with this — or your intentions for the coming week — in the comments below. Enjoy!
Today I have two questions for you that can significantly impact your effectiveness and enjoyment of today as you create a life you love:
1) What’s on your “intention list” today?
By “intention list”, I’m actually referring to something different from your “to do list”. Your “to do list” may include all kinds of tasks, major and minor, that you have on your list to get done, but your “intention list” refers to the “big things”, the most important things that you want to sow in your business, your health, your relationships, your life today to have a fulfilling day and move your life forward.
Perhaps it’s a blog post or video you want to create, 3 new connections or appointments you want to set, or a key meeting or presentation you have today.
On a personal note, it may be a walk or connection time with a loved one — your spouse, partner, son, or daughter; dinner together as a family; or reading to your kids before bed.
What are the few “big things” that you really want to sow today to create a fulfilling day?
Put these on your “intention list” — and ideally set a time or at least a segment of your day when you plan to carry out each intention.
You can always adjust as you go through your day, but it will make a big difference to be clear on your intentions and have an initial plan for when you’ll accomplish them.
Otherwise you have more of a “wish list” than an “intention list”. 🙂
Next to assist you with choosing what to put on your “intention list”, here’s the second question:
2) What would be “enough”?
See yourself at the end of today — looking back on today, what key actions, accomplishments, or experiences — what key sowing — would actually be “enough” and feel good when you reach the end of your day?
This is key from two perspectives: first, it helps you clarify what really is important to you today and second, it helps you decide ahead of time what would be “enough” so you can actually feel good as you navigate your day and particularly when you wrap up your day tonight.
Otherwise we have a tendency to just keep going from task to taskt to task, always having more to do, and never feeling at peace.
So practice these two questions today:
1) What’s on your “intention list” today?
2) What would be “enough” so you could feel happy and fulfilled at the end of your day?
Feel free to share one or more of your answers in the comments below, and here’s to creating today as the next step in creating a life you love!
Ever feel like your time just got “hijacked” and all of a sudden you don’t know
where it went? When that happens do you feel frustrated and “off-track”?
Here’s a quick video tip to get back “on track” — eliminate that frustration and
overwhelm — and feel good at the end of your day. Enjoy, and feel free
to leave your own questions, insights, and feedback in the comments below!
Just posted this quick video tip on a practice that’s been a powerful way for me to begin and end the day, and wanted to share it with you – let me know your own tips & experiences in the comments below. Enjoy!
Here’s three keys to creating new results in your health, business, and life
that I recorded for you while waiting for my wife in the car this weekend.
The laptop was on my knees, so the video moves a bit – if you’re sensitive
to motion, you can simply listen to the content, then ask yourself — what’s
the next step you can take to create new results? Enjoy!
Good morning! Just uploaded a quick one minute success strategy that if you practice it a few minutes a day this week and every week hereafter, you could revolutionize your experience and results in an area you choose.
So here you go – enjoy – and feel free to leave your comments or questions below!
Many of us experience areas of our life where the changes and
results we want to see aren’t showing yet…
Here’s some thoughts I video’d out on the back deck yesterday
afternoon – the camera is a little jittery – but I believe you’ll
benefit from the content.
And for those of you who like to read, here’s a couple thoughts
I shared in an email with someone I’m mentoring last week that
reflect lessons that I’ve been walking out as well:
Are you familiar with some of the Old Testament stories of the
Children of Israel wandering in the wilderness? Moments when
there seemed to be no water or food, and the next moment when
God brought them water from the rock or manna to feed them?
One of the “tests” of this life is learning to hold and affirm
what’s “true” and “there” even before we see it with our eyes…
The problem is we keep looking at what we can see, getting
discouraged and/or expecting more of the same…and so not much
but at any moment things can change as we shift our expectations,
starting with practicing different thoughts…and affirming and
giving thanks for every little seed and sign along the way – even
when it’s just an idea and a possibility and nothing visible yet –
so it can grow and expand into our actual experience.
Here’s a verse that reflects this profound spiritual principle in
a poetic way, regardless of your particular faith background –
“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the
word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things
which do appear.” (Hebrews 11:3)
Would love to hear your own stories of holding the vision and
belief of something “not yet seen”…and taking action toward it…
until it manifested in your own experience!
Here’s to your expansion into new possibilities and results this week!
