Think It, Be It
Are you really what you think?
I do not mean; “I want to be a pilot”, and bam you’re a pilot!
Nope, I am referring to the idea that you are the sum of your thoughts.
See, I work a lot, I think a lot about work, and I seem to have too little left to talk about or focus on.
I could write all kinds of creative stories about customer service experiences.
Maybe even throw in why having a process is so important to make life more efficient.
But that is not what we are about here…
We are about finding ways to shift towards a lifestyle that supports being active, eating for health, and cultivating mental fortitude.
Lucky for me, mental fortitude is something that can be developed and talked about regardless of what you do.
Sometimes it is difficult to meet challenges if you feel run down by lack of sleep, meals that have less nutrients than needed and less activity than you are accustomed to.
It all plays together and it either builds resilience, or slowly wears it away.
I notice by not giving myself time to do other things, my mind keeps staying focused on work.
This does not let me really step away and get a break.
It starts to feel repetitive.
Wasn’t I just here? Didn’t I just do that?
It also feels strange to not have a partner who can cover for you, if you need time off, or get sick.
Thinking It True
If I start thinking of ways to be less at work and more doing other things, maybe I will find a way to think it into reality.
Obsessing about that may lead to solutions for better work and life experience.
Ignoring the details I can not control while in my down time or sleeping, and focus on a small step I can take right now to make stepping away easier.
I am heading to Denmark for another round of training next week.
It seems like my schedule is jam packed. I will need to create down-time, to let me soak in what I am learning.
Walking away with better systems and processes would be great.
What do you think? Is what you think who you are?
Think about training and then become the training. Cheers!!
