The Choice to Move Forward

Mortgage and Lending with Cherry Creek Mortgage Illinois Residential Mortgage License LMB #0005759 Cherry Creek Mortgage NMLS #: 3001 NMLS ID# 158606

So I'm not perfect.  Kind of a bummer as I always thought I was.  But, seriously, since I'm reminded almost daily of my faults and the fact that I'm just not as perfect as I thought I was, my memo to myself today, and every Monday, is that today is another fresh start.

Frustrations occur when we get sidetracked from all of our goals.  I have a lot of goals and when I set my goals, I make them massive.  This way, even if I fall short, I'm still light years ahead of how I planned them.  In any event....falling short does lead to some frustration.  For me, I need to remind myself, that I'm still further along that I was prior to setting my BHAG (or Big Hairy Audacious Goals).

How's your Monday?   Down in the dumps?  It's cold and rainy here, but I know that every Monday provides a fresh start!

Larry, I seem to be very busy and on the verge of failing to accomplish "must do's"... but I am somehow accomplishing all I need to do and a little bit more.  Have a good week.

This is a good attitude to have on a Monday ... and every day!  Each day we're given another opportunity to work towards and achieve our goals -- and the chance at a fresh start!

Larry -- sorry to hear you have rain and gray skies today.  However, that is great incentive to get things done in the office.   Here, we are having a sunny Monday, and it makes one want to be outside (where very little office work would be done.)

Choice is a wonderful thing to have and I've often marveled at how my day can change just by changing my attitude and outlook.

I hope this evening is a nice one for you,

We all get slumped towards the end of the week. But you are right Monday is a chance to start over!

My Monday was fabulous and yes...set goals but keep them realistic, dream big but give yourself time to reach those things in your life that you are striving for.  Enjoy your Tuesday.

I was just listening to Ester Hick and she feels that there isn't any disruption in those times, it's more just a new direction that life is taking you. What's your take?
