“Either you run the day or the day runs you” – Jim Rohn.
Running the day need not necessarily mean we command and control everything. Certainly we may strive for this, yet referring to running the day here I’m thinking about making choices aligned to our priorities.
Choosing the direction in which to run can sometimes be a question of ‘moving away from’ rather than ‘moving towards’. Leaving certain things, letting go of energy-draining habits or negative connections – people, groups, mailing lists – are ways of running the day.
With our day in place, we can get on with bringing our objectives into being. Focusing energies on key items creates momentum for our day and, as the saying goes: “A steady pace takes us far”.
I’m curious to learn how you are running the day. If you’d like to share your thoughts and input, please feel free to leave a comment below. In the meantime, thanks for stopping by here today.
