Those on my lists (join in the upper right corner of this page) enjoy receiving a short daily strategy quote every day. I love putting them up and reading them when they land in my inbox a few days later.
Today I returned from five days of traveling with my daughter. We traded the still cool air of the high Rocky Mountains for almost 100 degree summer heat in mid-Texas. It was a good trade for those of us tired of still wearing sweatshirts and fleece. The trip, being of an intense family variety, left no time for computers or writing. The preparation left me behind in setting up my daily strategies to be sent out in my absence.
Do I feel bad? Yes. I even struggled for a time with working on the computer in the hotel lobby, rather than engaging in the here and now. In the end, I chose to be present. 100% fully present. And that, is the realest daily success strategy I can share with you.
In our busy multitasking world, it has become a rare thing indeed to stay focused on the details of each and every moment. That’s what I did on this trip. I stayed in the present; stayed in the moment. It reminded me what a gift it is to give oneself fully to the events and emotions inherent in each minute of the day. It reminded me that the same focus is so crucial in our business life, as well as our personal.
The REALEST daily success strategy? Be mindful in all that you do. Give attention the those you are with. Bring your entire self with you, when you engage with others.
