Do It Right Now

"TODAY I will tackle at least two things I dread doing. I will not waste my time and energy by wallowing in boredom, worry, criticism, or fear. I will do what needs to be done even if it requires effort, risk and change."

A thought for the day from Hazelden, passed on by writer-photographer-businesswoman and regular participant here, Mamie Potter.

When I received this from Mamie this morning, I first thought: I'll post it. A second thought: I'll do it. So I added two items to my plan for today, both more important than anything already on my list.

Of course, it's still necessary to do them. But once they're on my list, it's highly likely.

If I followed through on this every day, I could really go places!

You go, girl! I feel the challenge.

Thanks! Shall we report here tomorrow on results? I will anyway.

Okay, I did my two items. Each was to start into a larger job. I made significant progress on one, and token on the other. But even the token step was useful; I now know better what's involved in that project.

How did it work out for you, Mamie?

There were two things I have been putting off: 1)call a new dentist for an appointment (I hate this kind of thing because then I will have to call the old dentist and let them know I'm leaving), and 2)put my photographs in an album so I can take them to some stores to sell them. I DID THEM BOTH! Whoo whoo! There's power in this.

Nice work, Mamie. I'm particularly pleased to hear about the photographs. I still have your picture of red shoes on display at home.

You're right-- there's definitely power in this.
