Do your work, and I shall know you. Do your work, and you shall reinforce yourself. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Prompt: Write down one thing you’ve always wanted to do and how you will achieve the goal. (Author: Colin Wright)
My to do list is vast and varied as are my interests. I have professional things I want to do as well as personal ones. My overall to do goal is to connect people across cultures, communities and countries. I want to engage more cross-cultural connections.
How do I do that? What is the one thing I want to do that will help me achieve that goal? I want to learn yoga. If I learn yoga, I learn how to exercise my mind and body in new ways and fill myself with the energy needed to fuel creative concepts to reach my goal.
By writing this down, step one is accomplished; I admitted the one thing I’ve always wanted to do. Step two, find someone immediately to jump start my yoga learning process. Find a local teacher. I have yoga teaching DVDs and books that have never been used. I have access to television shows demonstrating yoga that I never watch. Clearly, I need in-person, human contact to push me. Step three, take lessons at least once a week starting now. Step four, keep doing it. Step five, release myself from my teacher and go it alone. Step six, check “learn yoga” off my to do list. Done.
Next step, go with the flow: connect, create and continue discovering and doing new things.
