Inspiration - Life Hack -How do you make every day Count -By Bobby Dsouza
It was just as if yesterday was 2nd January 2017...The day I sat down with my blue leather diary, writing down my goals for the new year...writing down my dreams as the New Year was to unfold....! I forget to tick most of it!
It was as if it was yesterday that I wrote down on my fancy mobile the plan for me to spend time reading a great book.....It is still lying there on the shelf of my dusty bookshelf, It was supposed to be the 24th March as the registration date for an important learning certification that would enhance my existing career & business!
It was the 30th of April that I fell off my bike... hurt badly due to a drink and drive accident that stopped most of what I do for one month lying on the sheets of my so very familiar apartment bed!
It was the 12th of May that I was to register for a passport to travel for international opportunities... I guess I could not find the right time!
It was the 15th of November that my beloved lover left me as I was too busy working & talking to people who seemed to be mine but are not for the now! Now... I have no one to go to a New year party .....will need a Stag Entry I guess?
What you read above are list of 'wish list & regrets' of so many men & women ..boys & girls ...mothers.. dads.. housewives..businessmen & women...me & you & the many entrepreneurs who thought I will take that step ahead tommorow..they put it on the paper ...on a digital iPad ...however that's where it is still there....untouched !
30th November you had registered for guitar lessons with Mr.Gomes ...haven't you gone yet for your third lesson?
How many of your own goals, action items that you listed on your diaries have been ticked as done! How many of your actions have led you to move forward!
Or are you too busy to achieve your highest call?
How many of your steps of faith have you taken that makes you feel 'Yes I did it'
How many of your 'Busy' tasks..actions & routine have led you to be proud & has taken you closer to doors of your dream!
When was the last time you sat down with mum & dad without any agenda & laughed with them?
How many of your steps do you feel delighted about? ..what are some things in 2017 that you unfortunately regret?
How many of us are rusting away our physical self in things that temporarily delights but murders our health, goals, family hopes & ultimately us!
Now you would say ...why do you ask so many Questions Bob.....the purpose is simple ..to help you my friend identify how has your 2017 been & to boost you to move forward?
You know we all desire to reach our greater heights ....to that prized possession that would delight us ....to that change in size or ambience ...however to receive the medal of life .. you & I got to Make our every day count!
Think about it ...Rome was not built in one day as the famous proverb says...! true ...
However, think about this...Rome did not fall off in one day too! ...it slowly fell ...slowly struggled... & then decayed to ruins.. and now it is only an amazing history!
(The once glorious fallen Rome- in the picture above)
Your health...dreams...charecter....aspirations...family time & relationships is killed slowly steadily ..one day at a time...!
May I suggest ..build yourself for the bigger picture........make every day count!
Sometime aspirations are buried when you &I Keep living in the past stories of 'what didn't go too well!
This is my desire for you my reader & friend...make your new year count ...!
You will not even know when the wrinkles will appear on those selfie-taking radiant faces....as if it was yesterday!
Each moment you and I are either building something....or decaying something......we are either moving forward or going back to our past ! so make your day count ...by asking yourself this..... the actions I am taking today ..... is it building me or destroying me & my loved one's dreams & hope?
This does not mean you should not have fun ...! of course you should ....for happiness is important...but you are called to have a longer lasting fulfilment..& that you will receive when you grow....when you contribute to the greater good beyond yourself ...to accelerate.....to be a miracle for someone ....to grow up to your potential that has been birthed in you !
So Stop right now...whatever you are doing .....& ask yourself ....'Am I making my today Count?
How do I want my 2018 to look like?
Do I want it to be like the last year & the year before that?
So for heaven's sake ....! stop wishing & start doing ....! Make your today count! make your dream count!
Don't settle for what you have today in the comfort of your workstations, sofa & bed! ...build your self up..through the monotonous of work days... through times of tight schedule ...through times of pain ...through times of delay ....through times of joy ...through times of uncertainty ...look up to your larger life purpose & dream... .smile ...live ...laugh ...learn....serve someone...bring value to someones life....grow...& you will not have to sit back in 2019 ...regretting !
take actions each day & make your everyday count!
Are you too tired of familiar things in your life ? do you feel a sense of 'I have done that .....been there'? then its time that you take a plunge into uncertain territory ...to jump off a cliff of safe shore & sails into the bliss of a new island that you need to explore!
.........You are far bigger....larger, better ... then you can think or fathom....!
Make your day count ....for your Rome (dream) is not built in a day ...each day counts!
