Daily Cupcake #7: Taking Charge
Reminding myself that we all have the same amount of time each day gives me a jolt to get creative with my day.
I can achieve at least a version of an awesome, fulfilling, ideal, productive...insert your adjective of choice...day everyday.
With creativity and a little moxie to take charge I can make it happen.
Discipline is paramount to taking charge. It sounds stuffy and entirely unfun, but it is what gets me out of bed at 6:50 instead of 7:20. It helps me avoid time sucks that are less valuable ways to spend my day.
The gist is to:
- Be creative to identify the essence of what you want out of your day
- Be disciplined to bring it into the fold of your day
Which leads me to this #DailyCupcake about Taking Charge that follows the Pilates principle of "control". Depending on what you need in your day you can take:
Just a nibble: “Hell, there ain’t no rules around here. We’re trying to accomplish something.” Thomas Edison
A few bites: Innovation is about being creative. Can you problem solve your schedule to better make use of your time?
Every last bite: Keep a journal for a week of how you spend each hour of the day and use it to shuffle your activities to meet your needs (and what may seem like wants!).
