The Choice is Yours

Rise and shine 

Rise and shine 

Productivity has been on my mind as I think about my future plans and what I want to do with my life. It has also been on my mind (today) because I have pretty much failed this morning in the area of productivity. I usually enjoy my Mondays because they are one of my “weekend” days since I have Sunday/Monday off. I take the time to write and catch up on things like laundry, shopping, and cleaning. Unfortunately, not one of those things happened before 11:30am aaaanddd to top it off, I have to go to work today. 

So it is only noon and I already feel like a failure. Yayyyy.. Happy Monday to me. I should probably just give up. The day is half way through and Mondays always suck anyway, right?

Wrong. I am choosing to be productive for the rest of the day even though I had a slow start. I am choosing to be intentional with my hours, get off of facebook, and get as much as I can get done.

 I fail often but I also know how to forgive myself. 

How are you doing with forgiving yourself of your failures and moving on from them?


Seth Godin has been inspiring me lately. Here is what he says about choices….


Your choice

Habits are a choice

Giving is a choice

Reactions are a choice

Ideas are a choice

Connections are a choice

Reputation is a choice

The work is a choice

Words are a choice

Leading is a choice


…. What we choose to do next, though, how to spend our resources or attention or effort, this is what defines us.


Questions? Ask away.
