Wise words, and somewhat of a conundrum too. Why? Because I want to do it all, NOW. My patience could use a little growth.
Inside my brain: Imagine a crowd of at least 100, waiting, somewhat unorganized, energized, excited, driven, determined...all planning to get through one single door for a free trip to Hawaii, you just have to be first.
The crowd is anxious and very VERY motivated. The countdown goes off, 3...2...1...GO!
People get trampled, the door gets jammed, the door frame starts to break...and calmly on the other side is a tropical drink (with umbrella), luau music, and a nice gentleman smiling brightly while holding the grand prize ticket to HAWAII
in one hand, a fresh coconut in the other. But NO ONE can get through the craziness to be the one and only through the door.
Ahh, patience. One thing at a time, or so they say...
If something is important enough...
Even if the odds are against you...
My goal today, one thing at a time.
The odds, well, maybe I like being an underdog, so they can remain against me if that needs to happen for a bit longer (or until I change said odds) :).
The only thing I do know, is that I CAN do it all, I just have to choose which thing to focus on first. I guess I'll focus on a slower paced marathon and just keep moving. Flowing effortlessly from one thing to the next. Zen dreams and aspirations from my innate brute methodologies. Isn't there a joke about a bull in a china shop I could insert here??
Cheers all- Have an amazing motivation-filled Monday.
