Embrace Your "To-Do" List

The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones. ~ Confucius ~

How many things have you been putting off?  What kind of excuses are you using?  "I'm too busy."  "I'm to tired."  "It's too hard."  "I'm overwhelmed." "I don't like it."  If you look at all the things you have to do as a negative then it will harder to get done.  If you are overwhelmed break things down into smaller chunks.  If you don't like a certain aspect, figure out a reward or do it first before doing the things you like.  A wise man once said, "When you sit down to eat.  Eat the food you detest first then you can enjoy the rest of your meal without having to agonize." If something is too hard. Get help.  Leaders look at their to-do lists as necessary to success.  Even those things that seem unrelated to your goal are important.  They create learning opportunities.  As a leader, your tasks and responsibilities are not obstacles but stones in the path of your journey.  Some stones will be more appealing than others and some will be heavier but you will need to place them all.

1. Close your eyes
2. Breathe
3. Empty your mind
4. As thoughts come in, acknowledge and whisk them away
5. Focus on your breathing
6. Think about the affirmation:

"I will embrace, with contentment, all that I have to it is part of my journey."
