Bumps and Interruptions

Once upon a time; I read a book called “7 Habits of Highly Effective Families”! So, In this book, Stephen Covey compares a successful family to an airplane pilot with a flight plan. For the pilot, the flight plan identifies the destination and outlines the path to getting there. But during the course of the flight … things like wind, rain, turbulence, air traffic, human error and other factors act upon that plane. Throughout the trip, there are slight deviations from the flight plan. But barring anything too major, the plane will arrive at its destination because the pilot is constantly adjusting to get back on course and get BACK to the flight plan. He used a statistic saying pilots are off their flight plan like 90 – 99% of the time, due to bumps and interruptions etc. – but the reason they arrive at the correct destination is because they are constantly working to adjust for such and get back to the PLAN. 

I believe that this principle can be used towards your fitness and wellness plans as well. We need to make sure we have a unique “flight plan” that reflects our values and principles … and one that that enables us to successfully handle bumps and interruptions and thus reach our desired “destination.”  Because let’s face it … no plan is perfect and there will ALWAYS be obstacles, bumps and interruptions, right?

I always say ‘A Goal Without A Plan Is Just A Wish’ ! I even got an artist friend of mine to paint it on a wooden sign so I can hang it in my house. I love this daily reminder to constantly adjust my course to stay on PLAN and reach my DESTINATION. 

SO do tell; how do YOU stay on course?

Curiosities

Curiosities
By: Debra Sue Higginbotham

Curiosities, perplexing.

Dead cat,
not withstanding.
Questions … sought.
Answers,
fought.

Riddle me this.
Tease me that.
Curiosities.
Seek
truth.

Perceptions, entangle.
The same
is never
the same.

So curious,
so reaching.
No intimidation;
when seeking.

Random inquiry.
Often mysterious.
Strange or taboo …
makes you curious.

Tell me what
— you see.
Show me ~ what you know.
Engaging curiosity
daily…
because …
Knowing this;
and learning that…
has never really,
killed
a cat.

If I can lose over 170 pounds and keep it off for over 5 years; I am reasonably certain you can do the thing that it is you are trying to do for yourself. At any rate; whether you think you can or think you can’t … you are indeed correct. Carry on.

Are We There Yet?

Success is the journey – not the destination – or something like that.

Enjoy every milestone.   Learn from every failure.  Rise from every fall.

Friction polishes the diamond, or so they say.

I am not where I want to be yet; but I am oh so very far from where I started.

Are we there yet?   Probably not.   Just keep swimming my good peeps.
