THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME
Many of us feel that we are
not fully in control of lives.
We slip from day to day, event
to event, dealing with what comes,
or what happens next.
Many of us have never
been trained on exactly how
we can take control of our lives.
And this is a critical issue,
for personal effectiveness is
directly linked to our happiness.
We can change this from today,
by implementing a daily system
of ritual, routine and priority activities.
We can create this daily system
piece by piece, starting with an early
morning routine (to take ownership of
the day), and then building our own
scaffolding of purposeful reading, writing
in our journal, walking, reflection,
exercise, projects that are important
to us, silence, prayer or affirmations.
This is all about personal ownership.
It is taking control of our time, our
thoughts, the messages we tell ourselves
(and tell others), our skills, our experience,
our hopes and our potential.
It is this personal daily system
of ritual, routine and priority activities,
that enables us to shape our day.
For this in turn is what
shapes us, and who we are.
