AYD - May 15, 2013 - Don't be a Slave to Goal Draining Routine

"In the absence of clearly-defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily trivia until ultimately we become enslaved by it. "
- Robert Heinlein

Out of sight, out of mind. 

Sometimes we need a kick in the pants to remember the things we know, and to see the obvious pattern we continue to fall into.

Picture the deep impressions in the asphalt from popular truck routes.  Over and over they travel that route.  Same lines.  Now...imagine that is us.  Walking in the same circles...over and over... like the ponies at a county fair.

I am not saying we are not happy.  But I am saying, our heads are down looking at the path more than they are looking up to see what is new in the light of the sun.  What have we been missing while we focus on putting our feet in the existing impressions? 

While we enjoy the comfort of our routine ... I say this morning we need that kick in the butt.  Just to make sure our eyelids open up and we take in a deep breath of fresh air.  Look at our own stone carvings of the things we do in a day and ask ourselves...

"What do I do, because that is all I have ever done?"

And then.... picture if you will, a clean slab of stone, waiting for a chisel to start a new idea.  Or a freshly laid concrete sidewalk... waiting for a new set of foot impressions to mark a new route across it.

If you were not limited by the daily trivia ... what would you do differently?  What would you try?

Consider this a fun game this morning. Go thru your routine, and become aware of what you do each day, because that is how you always do it.  What could you change, if it meant bringing a new perspective?  What could you change if it meant you could add to your routine, some attention or baby step to a goal, that could become achieveable ... one new trivial step at a time.

Good Morning, Great day.
Greater you, means a more influencial environment for others.
