November 26, 2012 - Are you feeling uninspired by the same old work and life happening day after day? Are you feeling unenergized by what you currently must get done or keep progressing? Instead of focusing on what it "isn't" to you, focus on what you would like it to be. Instead of focusing on what makes it uneventful, uninteresting, and ungratifying, focus on what is missing and then do something about it to bring the missing element into your reality.
Take an MM&I Moment to note anything that would make what you are currently doing more inspiring, more energizing, more interesting, more gratifying and more of something to look forward to doing each day. Then note one action you can take in each instance to make it happen. Too often the rut we are stuck in is because we are allowing ourselves to stay stuck in it, being caught in all that it currently is versus all that it could ultimately be.
