The down site of this week was that when I had some open time I was totally unproductive, feeling empty, without any drive to accomplish any MKE stuff … although scroll 3 resonates so much at this time of the course! I believe the cause is that I have so much to do (for people in my life, my business, my house, my daughter, my daily life) and so much I want to move forward with besides MKE that I simply end up being paralyzed and do nothing. The other type of sabotage is like tonight finishing my days at 2am or later, what impacts of course more or less negatively the next days or the following one when I keep the same pattern.
I however had few small successes against other debilitating habits: I turned in my survey on the day of the webinar instead of the last or before last due day (felt very good and freeing). I also read once Haanel mid-afternoon instead of dragging it till the very end of the day when I’m falling asleep on it and my brain is not as functional especially when I am already deprived of sleep. Another small habit change was to contribute more to my tribe. And lastly I worked out 3 times so far (against in average once or less weekly at the most in the past 2 years!)
So again I’ll conclude this blog with Og Mandino scroll III:
The prizes of life are at the end of each journey, not near the beginning; and it is not given to me to know how many steps are necessary in order to reach my goal. Failure I may still encounter at the thousandth step, yet success hides behind the next bend in the road. Never will I know how close it lies unless I turn the corner. Always will I take another step. If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another. In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult. I will persist until I succeed. Henceforth, I will consider each day's effort as but one blow of my blade against a mighty oak. The first blow may cause not a tremor in the wood, nor the second, nor the third. Each blow, of itself, may be trifling, and seem of no consequence. Yet from childish swipes the oak will eventually tumble. So it will be with my efforts of today. I will be liken to the rain drop which washes away the mountain; the ant who devours a tiger; the star which brightens the earth; the slave who builds a pyramid. I will build my castle one brick at a time for I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking. I will persist until I succeed.
