Ease and Endeavor

"A small daily task, if it be really daily, will beat the labours of a spasmodic Hercules." -Anthony Trollope  


 

I wrote about this the other day, and it's still running around my mind. Daily habits are a powerful, powerful tool. I'm working on my list, here's what I have so far:

 

Pray and meditate

Practice yoga.

Be grateful; notice what's working in the world.

Review and develop my CPP, which stands for Career Path Planning. It's a planning tool that contains all my long and short term goals.

Work on my business plan for Detroit.

Check email, get to an empty inbox.

(Work on the Knowledge Legacy.)

 

The Knowledge Legacy is in parenthesis because it's a temporary project. It'm my main responsibility at work and it's a very big project, so I work on it everyday.

 

I often feel caught in the circle of planning my life and living my life. I so badly want to implement all these lovely self improvement techniques in my head (like a daily habit list) that I can become anxious and distracted, neglecting the present moment.

 

I'm committed to constant improvement, and I'm not quite sure yet how that fits into a life of peace and content.

 

Content in the moment, endeavoring towards the future - are they mutually exclusive?

 

I don't think so.

 

I do think it takes a lot of wisdom, wisdom I'm developing, slowly.
