AYD - April 1, 2013 - Be Ready to be the Artist

Inspiration can find you anywhere.  What better place to open that door for a greeting than on Opportunity Monday?

I glanced at our family calendar last nite.  One of those big ones you can put everything on for the family so everyone's events and appointments can get captured so our hectic lives can have some order.

Ironic then for me to see a simple quote right there at the top...

"All great changes are preceded by chaos."
- Deepak Chopra

So not only does this apply to the life you see laid out by appointments and schedules right there staring you in the face on the calendar, but it is a common denominator spreading it's truth to other often overlooked moments.

Monday mornings.
Packing before a holiday.
That important meeting.
Going back to school.
A financial planning meeting.
Announcements about that project at work.

My point is ... hold on, it gets better.  The chaos before great things taking place is like the countdown to lift off, the fuse being lit.   Energy runs rampant, ideas and tasks and What If's all compete for the same single sane brain cell we have left.

Be ready, by knowing this is, dare I say .... normal.
If you can hold on, recognize the signs... and know that something good will come of this - then you may very well be one of the elements that gives shape to the good outcome.

For example... "It's always crazy on Monday,"  is something you often may hear in the work place.
What if it was followed by your peers saying..." He's Always on his game on Monday!"

Be ready to be the artist of change when chaos is doing what it always does.

Great morning, Greater day.  Great you, a better day for everyone else.
