It happens so quickly doesn’t it? One minute we are feeling purposeful and in control and on top of things and the next it feels like we’re chasing behind our to-do list and wondering if we’ll ever catch up. The temptation is to just do more, move faster. The problem is, going faster is often not the answer. If we’re stuck in a vicious cycle of too much to do, going faster is just like speeding up a hamster wheel. We work harder and harder but we don’t get anywhere—and the faster we’re going, the less likely we are to be creative enough to figure out how to do it differently, in a way that works better for us. I’m not a big horoscope reader, but I noticed mine today and it made me smile: “Give yourself an extra 15 minutes to do each thing you have to do. Moving at a slower and more careful pace, you will be more confident, loving, and powerful.” What a great thought for the day.
Take good care,
