Contemplation is Priceless

Paris - Musée Rodin: The Thinker

Do you ever take time to just sit and think? If you are like most people the answer is no. Thinking seems lazy and unproductive; a waste of time.  In reality, time to think, dream, plan and contemplate can be one of the most valuable uses of our time. How will we make friends with our inner selves otherwise? How will we conjure plans to change the world? How will we get that inspiration that takes our success to the next level? How will we discover the true gifts of life unless we take the time to turn them over in our minds and fully absorb them?

This weekend set aside some time to just think and see where it takes you. You may be pleasantly surprised to find that it the time well spent.

Never be afraid to sit awhile and think. – Lorraine Hansberry

Task Management: Simplified

Our theme this year is “Keep it simple.”  Don’t make it more complicated than it has to be!

Successful time management = Knowing

Knowing what you have to do each day

Knowing when you have to do it

Knowing what level of importance it has

Knowing you didn’t forget anything

That’s it. It doesn’t matter what system you use. It just needs to satisfy those four key requirements. If it doesn’t, then it’s not working, no matter how good it looks from the outside.

Learning is Key to Success and Fulfillment

We are not what we know but what we are willing to learn. – Mary Catherine Bateson

What are you willing to learn? It may not take place in a school or even in a book, but knowledge is all around us, waiting to be absorbed. Do you desire to learn how to more skilled at your profession? How to be a more patient parent? how to be a more considerate human being? How to practice creativity or how about a hobby? Maybe you wish to learn to be more forgiving? Wherever your thirst for knowledge takes you, follow it. That is the path to a fulfilling life.

What are you drawn to learn? Give it a try and see where it leads.

The Grass is Green Enough

Image by wili_hybrid via Flickr

If we can accept that the grass is green enough and that it is possible for us to be happy right now, then our lives will be so much easier and more fulfilling. The grass will always be greener someplace else and if you are continually striving for more and better, then you will never be happy where you are. Focusing on what’s wrong with your life, your home, your job, your car, whatever does not motivate you to improve your situation; it only robs you of your joy. Instead, focus on what is right and good in your life and you will find your attitude and enjoyment of your everyday experiences expands. In addition as one of life’s little bonuses; a change in attitude and an aura of happiness somehow draws good things and good people to you making your life even better without all of the angst.

Today look around you and really appreciate “how green your grass is.”
