You can't doing everything everyday!

Squirrel mentality

on January 24, 2015

I bet squirrels think they are pretty busy and pretty important (to themselves, about themselves and about what they are doing). Frantically running around gathering nuts.  Ending the day feeling pretty accomplished.  For what??? They are just running up and down trees, not caring about squirrels in the adjacent neighborhood, across town, or even across the street. Cincinatti or New Orleans for that matter!  They just run around accomplishing their task for the day, not even concerned (until they learn a lesson or two) about running out into the street and getting hit by a car!  Just running around gathering nuts for their little hole in the ground.

What’s the car in your daily routine?   Interent? coffee? lunch routine? particular people?

What bowls you over and derails you or even “kills” your drive, motivation, reason for being?

Are you getting hit by “a car” daily?  Or is it just one vice that floors you, creams you, flattens you out?

You little squirrel, you!

Don’t be mindless about running around, frantically accomplishing today’s tasks. Avoid the common patterns or destructive behaviors that derail.

Keep your eye on the prize and be mindful about gathering your nuts.  There are neighboring squirrels gathering nuts too, all over the world as a matter of fact.  Be mindful of that too, when you interact with other “squirrels” in traffic, the hall at work, public places.  Be mindful of the fact that you are not the only squirrel with a mission.  When you return home to your little whole in the ground, remember, you weren’t the only one out their gathering nuts today. (Those you love have been busy too).
