List-making in 2012

Uncategorized

Last month at this point in time many of us were putting the finishing touches on our lists for the New Year, focusing upon goal-setting and trying to implement one step at a time. Now by the middle of February, many people are feeling overwhelmed and fatigued, unable to move ahead on their game plans.

So how about shifting perspective and start making “to be” lists before making “to do” lists? Each morning before beginning your daily activities, you can create your to be list and write down what you wish to express throughout the day. You could choose to be organized and efficient, spontaneous, compassionate, daring, reflective … the sky is the limit, and you hold the power to choose whatever is most appropriate for you in your own context.

After you have committed this to paper, next write down on another list what you wish to do as this person. Not only will this practice help you reconnect with your deeper values, but it will also produce positive emotions and renewed energy.

Going towards our highest ideals is key to maintaining motivation and enjoyment along the path in the journey of self-improvement!

Patience & Passion

Seek patience

and passion

in equal amounts.

Patience alone

will not build the temple.

Passion alone

will destroy its walls.

Where and how are the many ways you can add a little patience & passion in your life?
