Watchmen of Overwhelm

Watchmen of Overwhelm

Exhausted, I posted that one word on Facebook last night. It has been quite the week of highs, lows and overwhelm. That is the nature of overwhelm. That is the point. Let me explain.

Curiosity and Excellence

Curiosity and Excellence

Curiosity and Excellence support one another, not unlike two wings. In Endurance Today, I shared “What are your dailies that will allow you to breathe and practice Patience? Let’s explore.

Endurance, Today

Endurance, Today

Endurance is not achieved in the future. It is not found in holding our breath. It is grounded in a deeper sense and practice of Patience. It is achieved in the day lived, today.

Fixity of Purpose

Fixity of Purpose

I am calling out on “resolutions”… at least our misconceptions of same. Just yesterday, I offered up on A Meaningful New Year. Today, I simply focus on Resolve… as virtue; a “fixity of purpose”. Most resolutions are not actually born of Resolve. Hence, they are not true resolutions.

A Meaningful New Year

A Meaningful New Year

Rather than simply wishing a Happy New Year, I am considering the notion of wishing one of meaning. Just yesterday, I posted on exploring the juncture of past, present and future. Here now, I want to look at what I call the TaCtical approach to meaning for ’22… and beyond.

Habit Seeding

Habit Seeding

Over the years, I have been introduced to the notion of 21 days to build a habit. Whether a myth or not…. I have found that Mindfulness (our awareness of habits) matters, as does the notion that it is less about breaking a habit and more about changing them.

Day One, Again

Day One, Again

Burn the Ships

Burn the Ships

I have prayerfully reflected and it is time to burn the ships. Just today, I posted on Leave your Mark and The Character of Business. Yesterday, on The Character of Teaching. All of that is to say and manifest on that which I must let go, hold to and pick up. What ships must be burned?

Dare to Decide

Dare to Decide

I have sometimes been been prone to waiting on people and things when I sometimes would be wiser in not doing so. That is not a criticism of others but an awareness of alignment, or lack thereof, in a given circumstance or situation. You?

The Real Control

The Real Control

“You will never get it all done”. These are words that constructively haunt me. Priorities… it is all about priorities. In truth, time management is a bit of a myth. Our time is finite. What we do with it is our best influence and control.

Runnin’ Down the Dream

Runnin’ Down the Dream

For me, these 90 days coming are about me running with Grace flat out… towards something. That matters. Knowing where you are and where you want to be helps in that kind of running. It matters. Flat out is less the issue. Direction is.

When the Swords Flash…

When the Swords Flash…

Getting clear on purpose is a powerful force. It is the weighty thing. But momentum is a combination of weight and speed. That ton of stone has ever more force rolling down the hill. Here I go… walk with me. Nay, run.
