the never-ending tick tock of the clock does not always press me into action
i’ve felt crushed by time and lost time, wasted time and filled it to the brim with unnecessary busyness
But, there “comes a time” when you just have to tame it and use it to the best of your ability.
I’m at that time in my life.
I read an article in Psychology Today – (and recently wrote a little about it here .) -The article spoke of a study that was conducted revealing the danger of daydreams… those who vividly daydream are less likely to achieve their dreams, (according to their research.) Failure comes because dreamers are able to so fully imagine/visualize -the whole ‘been there, done that’ freezes them into not bothering. (seriously paraphrased)
Hmmm, I can totally see their point….even if I do not always believe their conclusions – my blog post “Livin’ la Vida Loca” snarkily disagreed with “big science” …..but this time – this time – is different.
the idea that I might be complacently daydreaming my life away shook me into action.
Okay, okay I am AWAKE – now let’s get on with it.
Prioritize – and get to work – doing what matters – everyday- with a smile –
because actually living my dream is much more fulfilling
(and inspiring to my kids-friends-strangers)
than simply imagining.
Nothing will work unless you do.
