April 4, 2011 - How do you begin each day? Is it immediately focused on the tasks at hand or do you ease into the day awakening to its possibilities first? Is it feeling as though you are already behind or are you excited by how much further ahead you are going to be by the end of the day? If you get too bogged down with all that you have to do, you can easily lose sight of why you are doing it in the first place.
Take an MM&I Moment to focus on the opportunities that you are going to leverage or create each day this week. Then start each day thinking first of the possibilities that could result from these opportunities. What you will find is that by thinking of the possibilities first, it will open to you even more options and ways to truly turn those opportunities into desired outcomes ... those possibilities into probabilities ... and best of all, you will dive into your list of tasks with a great deal more excitement and anticipation.
