Thoughts From the Coffee Table: This week I learned that you are 200 times more likely to become a millionaire if you make your bed right after you get up. Last month I learned that you will be healthier if you don’t make your bed right away and instead allow it to air out with the blankets thrown back. I made my bed this morning. And then bought a lottery ticket.
When I write in my journal every day, I am clearly focused. But if I miss even one day, my focus suffers.
When I exercise, my body is strong and healthy. But when I miss even one day, I often miss 2 or 3 or more.
When I meditate, my soul and brain operate in tandem. But when I miss even one day, I am not balanced.
Last month I started drawing a star on each day that I did all three. I got 8 stars.
Earlier this month I realized I like stars. I want more stars. Like a child with a chore chart, I want more stars! I went to Target and bought foam gold stars.
After 15 days of gold stars I think I may have a habit.
I hit the road again next week for crazy travel in different time zones. I am scared. How will I keep it up? What happens when I am sick? I want all stars!
Breathe grasshopper… Relax and just take it one star at a time.
And buy another lottery ticket.
