Sometimes I forget about things that work well for me, those pesky, basic life skills. Seems silly, but I muddle along wondering why I am in a funk. Don’t feel quite right when nothing is glaringly wrong. Then I stumble onto one of the things I used to do regularly and get that energized, inspired feeling. Why didn’t I think of that (strikes forehead with heel of hand muttering “doh”)?
How do you keep track of what works? Wouldn’t it be nice to go there before the funk?
Here are a few I consider important:
Spend time with like minded people
Get a new perspective or some outside help in the form of coaching or classes
Practice the skills you want to acquire and keep practicing if you want to own them
Take care of yourself
Do what you are supposed to be doing (I know you know what that is)
Write it down: goals or a journal or an inspiration notebook
Do it now
Be persistent and don’t take rejection personally
Check the list and do it again
Some days I think I need to have these tattooed on my forehead, but mostly I just need to keep them nearby so I remember.
