Default Re: Getting business stuff done - the Power of Routines...!

"Small steps over time" - man - 4 small words but so big when it comes to results.


In the concept of small steps - one of the things I have wanted to do for many years is memorize scripture.

My favorite book of the Bible is Hebrews.

So on Jan 1, my 2015 goal was to memorize the whole book of Hebrews.

So far, I am almost finished with chapter 3.

IF I keep going, I MAY have the whole book done by the end of the year.

I'm 62, and looking back - it really bothers me that I wanted to do more memorizing over the years, but always was going to "get to it tomorrow" - and "tomorrow" never seemed to work out.

So - that was one of the non-negotiable tasks I made a card for.

The difference has been the plan - the cards - providing small daily FOCUSED times to "get'er done".

I remember thinking during those firsat few days - "man - I'm getting nowhere".

But NOW - 99 days later, I have almost finished 3 CHAPTERS of the book.

The days of focus has paid off.

I'm now periodically having to deal with the regret of - "if only I had been doing this years ago".

But - that's part of learning I guess.

I have 11 children (9 girls - 2 boys) - and jusy about the time the last one was marrying and leaving home, I FINALLY felt like I knew how to be a parent.

Oh well - it is what it is :-)
