Interview with Survivor Later Today - Today, Have the End Goal in Mind

Good morning. It is a great morning. We have some exciting things happening today. First, I have a holiday party to go to. A midday drink never hurts. Later today, we will be having our first guest. She is a very good friend of mine and is one of my sister's best friends. We were talking the other day and she just revealed that so much had transpired in her life as a child. I did not know she suffered so much trauma. Her life story is one of life or death. She has brushed up against death a few times. I am grateful for her strength to even talk about it. But, I do not want to give you to much information. She will join us today.

On another note, we are holding a Candle Light vigil today at the Capitol from 3 - 5 p.m. We will be on the First Street side of the Capitol, right across from the Supreme Court of the United States. We will show our solidarity today for the victims of violence. Hope to see you there.

Now, I would like to leave you this morning with a bit of inspiration. As I mentioned before, I am usually inspiring myself by writing too.

Having the End Goal in Mind

We can never think about this enough. Everything we do has an outcome to it. Our every step on earth is about an outcome. So, why not plan for it?

Planning on the planning end will help to eliminate planning on the execution end. Less planning during execution will give you time to just roll out your plan and implement. But, you have to set the goal and be steadfast in order to achieve it. Also, productivity matters. You will need to set your goal and then go for it. Easier said than done right? Well, having a goal is "half the battle". If you continually think about and put effort into the goal you have, there is a huge possibility that you will achieve it. But, having the end goal in your head gives you the opportunity to see it accomplished. Today, do not go about your day aimlessly. Think about the few things you would like to accomplish and order your own steps. Stay on task and on path.

At the end of the day, take a look back and feel good about your day. You have accomplished what you set out to do. Now, do not try to add things on today's list that can only be handled tomorrow. What do I mean?

Your daily list is your daily list, not your weekly list. Adding things to your daily list can confuse and overwhelm you. So "keep it simple stupid or silly" (KISS) is what I use sometimes to keep me on task. However, do remember to plan for tomorrow at some point today. Only accomplish today what you can reasonably accomplish.

Thanks for reading.

Til next time.
