The GS Scroll 5 continues to resonate with me. Especially the statement, “ I will live this day as if it is my last.”
Initially I thought the mere suggestion of having to draw my time/life-line and how long I anticipate living, was a bit morbid. However, as I continued to focus my thoughts on the assignment, I determined that just as I had no control over my birth, I don’t know the hour or the day I will transition from this earthly body to my total spiritual body. So, it makes sense to live each day as if it is my last, because I may not see tomorrow.
As we go throughout life, we tend to make plans and set goals for the future, when in fact, we may never see the plans come to pass or accomplish our goals because we’ve passed on.
I know I’ve gone through periods where I regretted not doing something or kept putting off things I knew I needed to do but didn’t. Now I realize that I wasted a lot of time thinking about things that happened in the past, when in fact, I can’t reclaim that time. If the thing that didn’t get done is that important, I can commit to getting it done NOW. Knowing how precious time is, is my incentive to get things done NOW.
My mother use to say, “tomorrow is not promised to you” and “ there’s no point in crying over spilled milk.” Now I reflect on- I may not live to see tomorrow and I can’t put spilled milk back into the bottle- Move on and take action.
I’m committing to focusing on things that are important to me, like keeping in touch with family, having some “me” time to have balance in my life.
On Sundays, I would fill out my calendar with activities I believed I need to get done during the week to move my business forward and become over whelmed after a time of constantly trying to keep up with everything I had on my list. After Mark when over the Hedge Hog Concept, my mouth flew open as I realized I have been work as a fox all these years.
The great thing is I recognized what I was doing wrong and did the exercise to prioritize the tasks/activities I need to do to effectively work smarter, not harder in my business. I’m finding that as I get my priorities in order, I have time for myself or to do something to help someone else out.
I’m excited to know that if I just stay committed and consistent, my business will take off and I will be overwhelmed with success.
