Alertness – 2017
So often, we go through the day on autopilot, doing those things we habitually do every day and reacting to those things that are variable events. Picture a small boat being gently tossed around in the waves. Alertness requires us to live deliberately, to be looking for that next wave so that we can hit it head on, to put up the sail and harness the wind for our advantage. How often do we fail to recognize signs of the wind shifting and are unable to react appropriately, especially if it is because we put off doing something important?
This month, practice Alertness, by choosing something that you procrastinate doing and hitting it head on.
