In Heed the Watcher, I noted how my body is sending signals for my own personal reset. Our health is an indicator of things; and mine is screaming in a whisper… and I am responding. That is Responsibility. I humbly recommend the read and reflect on that post. That said, today, I ever understand better what that reset looks like for me. Let me explore and explain.
In The Productive PIEEEE, I noted that “I am ever thankful to understand that productivity and production is neither straight line nor metric laden.” And… I articulated that “As I just finish my last class with my latest class of graduating students, with a bit of tear in eye and heart, I am reminded that I do not know where my work achieves any impact, but that my daily effort and intent matter. As does yours.”
Succinctly offered today, my thought is this. My Core Four are known to me. Faith, Work, Health and Home. They manifest in 5 clear advancements with Epic Engage and CNA, BOXsa, my Baha’i Faith and my own concept of HOME. This is my intent and plan; to place daily energies into these four, nay five… for life. It brings a gladness to my Soul. The plan is simple, and offers Flexibility too. It is a simple plan for a Simple Man. Taking care of these is taking care of me, and taking care of me enables me to ever better take care of who and what matters most to me. It is my Freedom. I cannot tell you how free it feels to have burned the boxes, knowing that these are my four, for life on Purpose. But, I can let my life be its own statement; letting deeds, not words, be my own adorning. Find your FOUR. Name them, Claim them. Then Champion them. I will. Peace. 😉
