Almost Let Myself off the Hook
You’ve probably heard it spoken to you, or maybe you’ve spoken to others the phrase “I’m too busy.” Well the fact is, if you have prioritized your life and business, you may very well be too busy. But don’t let yourself off quite yet. What is it you really want to be doing? Have you made time for that or are you “too busy” to work on it. I know that I do this frequently. There are projects that are pressing, such as writing for this blog at least once a month, that I almost let myself off the hook today.
As I thought about being “too busy” to put up a post here, I pulled back for a minute. Why am I too busy to do a blog entry? Isn’t this what it’s all about? Of course it is. You can motivate yourself even if you are too busy to do so. How? Put everything into perspective and look at the stuff that matters. Family of course matters first and foremost. Friends are up there. Business is too. So why would I want to write in this blog?
“Good Morning” is the Priority
I’ll let you in on a little secret, I motivated myself to write in this blog using a technique myself and my brother talk about frequently that we call “Monetize your life.” The premise is simple. There are things you do and could well have to do, that could be used in some kind of product, service or art piece. Keeping a blog at one time or another has either been one of these or even all three. I turned “being too busy” into a motivator telling myself that doing this blog is important to me. And it is! Excuse me now as I go and say “good morning” to my family!
