I have dreams and goals too! I have books in progress, clients to care for, groups to meet with, blogs to write, correspondence to answer and ideas to launch. However, I’m not sure about you, but for me there are so many time-sucking, thought-robbing, distractions that steal my attention and wreak havoc with my priorities. Then “resistance” grabs hold of me and pins me down like a sumo wrestler!
However, somewhere in between the urgent disruptions, the petty distractions and the continuous interruptions, there are openings where I can slip in and do my work. There are many days when the openings are so wide I can spend long hours working on my most prized projects. Other times the days are jammed with a heavy to-do list, or unexpected urgencies and there are no openings to be found anywhere.
Important because our time is so precious, and our goals are so important, and often the openings to get anything done are so small. However, what I’ve come to learn is that if our desire is true, and our commitment is ruthless, the openings will reveal themselves, and the opportunity to slip through the cracks and work on our dreams will be ours to seize.
