Let’s kick start our Summer goals off with a bang! We all have our own dreams and aspirations for the few months when the sun is in full force. Yet we let opportunities slip through the cracks. Laziness settles in, and the half-to’s become the Coxswain of our daily lives. The cell phones (sorry I ment smart phones) start chiming, emails begin to pile up, and family members plan our lives away.
We miss out on a lot of great moments in life because we don’t plan for it and learn to say no. Now I’m certian that when we were all kids we got the same speech about the saying no. I look at it differently, learning to say no in a positive way can benefit your life in a completely new way. Set aside some personal time to do what is most important to you, whatever that may be do it! And make sure to not let anyone take that time from you. Say no to the phone, email, and even family members. But do so by letting them work with your schedule, not the other way around.
I read ( and listened to a audio tape) many years ago that helped me change the way I spent my time. How I scheduled the have to’s, and personal time. The book was by Stephen R. Covey, the famous businessman that introduced the world to the 7 habits of highly effective people, and was titled “Focus: Achieving Your Highest Priorities”. Still to this day I struggle with this, but it is an amazing book.
Back to Summer goals, which is the discussion of this post (and photos of achieving my first small step). I have come to realize that I thoroughly enjoy life, the whole great adventure part. Meeting new people, exploring the world, and sharing those special moments with people. I will be continuing to explore what I have in my backyard, Colorado that is! I plan on summiting more peaks! I plan on honing my photography and hopefully getting some prints made! And most importantly sharing these moments with people, and making unforgettable memories that will last a life-time!
