When you first wake up every morning, what is number one in your mind? What is the first thing that you do when you get out of bed?
Does your mind wander unintentionally to the work that you have to do that day? Do you immediately check your phone?
Albert Einstein once said:
SO the question we all need to ask ourselves every morning is this:
Is the world you live in a hostile or a friendly one?
Every single day we make that decision. No matter yesterday's success, the decision still has to be made, each and every day.
So tomorrow what if when you wake up, you take a few minutes to think about the things that make you happy? Like the kiss your little boy or girl is going to give you before heading out to school, the hug your partner will greet you with when you come home, or the fact that, even though you may not have everything you want, you're doing just fine?
We live in a world where busyness has become a disease. And because it is such a prevalent disease it has become more acceptable to simply not be present. We validate our busyness with each other by sharing our weekend war stories about who's life is filled with more meetings, more distractions, more "busyness."
A week, 2 years, a lifetime from now, what moments are you going to recall as the ones that defined you on your journey?
Because more "busyness",... it just means less of all the good stuff. You know, all that stuff that holds true meaning.
