Motivational Monday, September 28th, 2020

Every action has an action not taken.

Good morning,

Why is my Successful Sunday blog being written on a Monday? Because of my choices. There is an adage that you can have it all. I am uncertain that you can have it all at the same time. There seems to be a tradeoff. I spent yesterday prepping for a work project. I knew my week was going to be packed and I did not want to spend another week playing catch up. The cost was not writing this blog.

I am trying out a time tracker app this week to get an idea of the choices I am making. So far, I still decided to play games on my phone, but because I am tracking myself, I did not start up a second round. Actually I am supposed to be doing Spanish now if I stick with my usual morning routine. However the thought of not writing anything since I have come out hiatus was not sitting well with me.

What are some choices you have to make this week? How will you prioritize? What are you willing to forego? If I am making my choices based on my goals, then I am going to choose to be kind to myself. It is easy to beat yourself up everyday. I find shame to not be an effective motivator. Think about the last time you accomplished something. How did it make you feel? Do you want to feel that way again? If yes, go accomplish something else. I am not going to let the perfect get in the way of the good. I am enough. This is enough.

Unless, dear readers, you have been anxiously waiting for this post since yesterday. If so I do apologize. Like the group The Black Sheep raps, "You can get with this, or you can get with that." If I can help you ask yourself about the choices you are making, feel free to reach out. Namaste.
