What’s Your One Thing?

Mine right now is struggling with keeping going what lies ahead.. recently, I’ve been focusing on the lessons of The One Thing by Gary Keller.

I’m really resistant to this. Sure I’ve trained for marathons, practiced aikido, even learned tango – all hallmarks of my ability to sticking with something. Yet, I don’t know.. what is it about blogging? or focusing my business for that matter?

For me freedom remains one of my greatest values. I used to think that the quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson was “Consistency is the hobgoblin of feeble minds.” Instead, he said, “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.”

So in reality he too was saying that freedom belongs to those who can handle it.

That’s not to say that this gives me the excuse to just drop this. But what IF I give myself permission to simply stop if this no longer serves me. Hmm.. maybe then it doesn’t feel so much like a obligation.. more like a responsibility –

That is, I have the ability to respond.. to choose..
