Last week after gathering inspiration from various corners I eventually wrote down what my ideal day would look like - complete with exercise, focused single handling and early mornings. I was proud of myself smile emoticon
Then the accountability buddies stepped in and started talking about how next year we would do some things based on the plan and reminding me of what I should have been doing at that time and I was like hold up, hold up, hold up!!
The 'status quo defender' in me came back with all sorts of smart mouth answers about how this was just my'dream' and I could make adjustment and changes along the way and I had my whole life to change it.
Yet in the silence of me time I was reminded how I would never actually grow if I kept perceiving my dreams and personal growth as an option that I owed no one an explanation for and had my whole life to get to!!My whole life? Sweet mediocrity!!
I probably was not going to die because of my serial distraction, procrastination and 'not-a-morning-person' badge. But how was it affecting my work, my relationships and how I felt about myself. I do not like how it feels and it sure won't work and will cost me more as I become a become more of a whole woman with a business and bambinos to balance in there.
Your personal growth is not an optional hobby that you could eventually get to when you get around to it. Its critical and its urgent!! It may seem like you are getting away with it now but trust me as life changes the costs will be magnified and the longer you nurture your bad habits, the harder it will be to stop them.
So yes, well done you have finally written down the goals, attended the workshop, bought the equipment, opened the savings account and got the application forms but get started on the execution already - with accountability and urgency.
