The ecstasy of an empty in-box and other things that matter

My email in-box is empty when I stop work each day. Making it so is always a good feeling.

I pride myself in responding to all emails and phone calls within 24 hours or sooner.

I do have an action file with things I can’t do today that I review and action once a week. I also have files for my research and one for each of my clients.

How disciplined are you?

It’s easy in an always on world to let our stuff and other people’s stuff control our lives. It is simple to not let this happen. (Simple rarely means easy!)

How disciplined are you?

Like everything in life being disciplined starts with an intention/purpose/reason.
It’s then a heart decision, how we feel about whatever it is.
Then it’s a mind-set, making sure our thoughts are in alignment with our feelings and intentions.
Then it’s about action and behaviour.

I call the above competing with yourself. It’s about why, feel, think, do. These result in is.

You can make a decision right now to modify or change these 4 steps to achieving more of what is and what isn’t in your life.

The key questions are Will you make the decision? Will you act on what you decide?

Be the difference you want to see in the world.
