What do you do when you make it to the end of the day and the majority of your daily goals are unmet? You work until you get done what you can get done. That day was today.
We attended the funeral of a very sweet lady today. We stood with family and friends and said goodbye. It was a time I would not have missed.
We got home this evening at 7:45. Seven of my eight daily goals were still unmet. I thought about blowing them off. I thought about curling up and going to sleep. However, I said I was going to do them. So, I got up and got them done.
I have found a lot of freedom in this. Yeah, I know. That sounds like it shouldn’t make sense. You have found freedom in having 8 daily tasked to achieve. Yes. Let me explain.
I am a citizen of the United States. I live in a free country. I can do what I want as long as it is not against the law. To accomplish this, I have to have a pretty good idea of what not to do. When I know that, I am free to do everything else.
I have eight daily tasks/goals that I have set out to achieve. Some of them involve not doing specific things. I can’t follow a nutritional diet and also eat a tub of ice cream a day. So I keep the diet and eat the ice cream in moderation. It is a boundary I have set for myself.
All this to say, I did what I needed to do today. I spent time with the ones I love. And, I was still able to get what I needed to do done, because there is freedom and flexibility that come when operating inside guidelines.
Day six is in the books.
