An Experience that Shaped My New Year's Resolution:
To avoid the usual and get into a different frame of mind, I avoided the internet for a week. You can’t imagine all that you will accomplish when not caught up in reading the news, sending emails, and staying up-to-date on the social networks. In addition, I got involved with something that ate up my time: I became a licensed health and life insurance agent in Florida.
If you decide how you will spend your time, you'll find that you can devote time to other things: the things you choose to do versus reacting to what everyone else places before you to inspire a reaction. All these extracurricular activities contributed to me not following my original plan.
Imagine being Invictus, the captain of your soul, the master of your fate, possessing an unconquerable soul. Doesn’t this sound like a self-made person?
Traveling the road less traveled can be invigorating. For instance, I found a park that not only has a walking and jogging trail; it has exercise stations along the way that allow one to perform long forgotten exercises. WHEW!
This week of respite helped me decide to make a resolution for 2012:
- Limit internet time
- Avoid responding to issues in which I truly have little to no interest
- Shape my own days, weeks, and months
- Write the next novel
- Complete The 3 Hour 3 Step Strategic Plan
- Publish Elevator 37
Have a Happy New Year
