Wednesday Pep Talk

Dear Self,

In the midst of your busy schedule, so far this week you seem to be on track to meeting the one weekly goal you gave yourself: to finish editing chapter 2. At some point you are going to have to prioritize your time. What is most important? You say writing, and yet you load your plate with a zillion commitments. Probably not the best strategy.

Upon reading the article It’s Their Day Too, it would behoove you to think about the ideas of considering somebody else’s day. This doesn’t just apply to your own children, although certainly they are a big part of it. It applies to other people on the road, your students, your friends, family, the mailman, your boss, literally anyone. It’s so easy to get caught up in your own feelings. Let your observing ego out of the shackles more often than not, step aside from yourself, and objectively analyze situations. You’ll find more to be positive about in life with that approach.

It looks like it may be time to go back to the drawing board. Create some fresh goals. Resolutions and re-tooling of resolutions doesn’t have to happen once a year.


Your Observing Ego
