Look up

“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, wonder about what makes the universe exist, be curious. However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up.”

– Stephen Hawking

Constant motion

We can be static in our learning or we can progress. If the choice is made to progress, great things happen. It opens up new doors and paths you never saw in the first place.

Our society likes things to be neat. You should be in this job for X amount of years and then retire. Well, that isn’t for everyone. Even if you are currently in that position and not loving it, then why not change?

You can create any reality that you envision. Yes, it will take some work, but the reward is more than worth it. Financial freedom, scheduling freedom, peace of mind and a work life balance. All of that is possible and closer than you think.

Be in motion, learn things that excite you. Seek out challenges. Overcome them and see where it takes you. Chances are you didn’t see that path or door just 2 days ago.

Make it the best day!

What takes more effort?

Running with a quick tempo or going slower because you are tired?

The answer is going slower. Your hamstrings act as springs and the less time you’re on the ground the more effective your running stride is.

That is bio mechanics in motion. You can still apply that to your day and tasks to get done. Know what you want to get done and the best path to get there. ¬†Be effective, be quick and don’t slow down. It will only come back to make your job that much harder.

Make it the best day!

Holidays

Holidays are fast approaching. Before they become all about gifts and travel, take a moment to realize what they really mean.

Spending time with your friends, family and living with gratitude. This time of the year can overwhelm everyone quickly. Before that happens, step back and say out loud everything you are thankful for!

This shouldn’t be a time of the year that you want to come and go quickly. Enjoy the time with your loved ones, because every year it goes a bit faster.

Live with gratitude and be thankful for all the love and support.

Make it the best day!

Listen

To your body

To your family and friends

To co-workers

To strangers

To nature

To new stories

To old stories

Don’t talk. Listen. Ask a question, then listen for the whole answer without interjecting. Hone this skill and just like having patience or gratitude you will be rewarded.

Make it the best day!

Foundation

We all start with a foundation. A base on which to build and become who we are. We also have foundations in our learning and in our health. These foundations help us get further in our career and improve our health and strength.

We must revisit our foundations to make sure they are stable. This can be with continuing education courses, reading the newest research, challenging our pre-existing ideas and evaluating to see if there should be a new route taken.

Our foundation started some time ago. However, it should always be revisited to see if it can be improved upon.

Life is about adaptation and challenging yourself to grow.

Make it the best day!

Re-ignite your fire

Has there been motivation lacking in your daily routine? Has your inner fire subsided?

Re-ignite that fire. Find your passion again. What is something you do every week that makes you excited? What makes you jump up and down and get giddy?

Sit down and think about this. What puts the smile on your face?

Find that and create around it. Re-ignite your fire in the area that you desire. Even if it only starts once per week, build on that. Make your life exciting again. Create the life you want to live and live it everyday to the fullest.

Make it the best day!
