Two Questions

I have two questions worthy enough to post next to my computer:

  • “Is There Another Way?” reminds me to stay nimble.  Whether I’m trying to ride a pattern on horseback in a crowded arena, or fighting to get my sleeping bag back into its stuff sack, there’s always another way. Just asking the question leads to ingenuity, pattern breaking, fluidity, and progress.
  • “Is this the best use of my time?” keeps me on task and off tangents. Sometimes the unexpected detour is where I need to swerve, but this question makes me pause and choose.

Homework: What’s posted next to your computer?

    Dodie — Love those questions!

    My note for today (when life is too busy):
    Lighten up
    Leave it undone
    Let others help

    Next to my monitor, in NO particular order:

    1) My EIN#
    2) Mission, Vision, Values (created with the assistance of Dodie)
    3) The word “NO!” Highly inappropriate for someone with a service business, but perfect for a business owner
    4) A list of quotes/inspiration. My favorite: “It is never to late to be what you might have become” -George Elliot

    My computer note is pithy:

    No whining.

      Great note, Shannon! I am actually allowed to whine twice. The first I don’t usually see coming, and the second, shows me it’s something really bothersome. After that I am required to either make a change away from what is whine-worthy, or accept it without complaint!
