My formula for living is quite simple
“My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between I occupy myself as best I can.” ~ Cary Grant
How do you use your day? Do you just keep yourself busy in some fun activities, do you let life happen hoping for the best, or do you strategically plan for clear results?
I like this quote because it shows how each of us has the same tool available (24 hours in a day), but it’s how we use it that can make a huge difference in our daily life and in the life of others around us. It could be our family, our friends, our clients or customers.
I am constantly planning for my clients’ future and success, but I am more flexible when it comes to my personal life. I’m definitely type A for important things (planning is my best friend) but I have to admit, I tend to let go and sometimes to let things happen. What amazes me, though, is that letting go often opens doors, brings opportunities, and gives me ideas and inspiration for my plans. I think this is a great thing! It’s also a way to give your body and mind a little rest from the to-dos and breathe, look around, feel what surrounds you. It’s important to be in the moment and appreciate who you are, what you have, what you can do for yourself and for others. Always working and running and being “busy” in your day doesn’t always mean you’re doing it right. Leave some white space in your day, leave some room for absolutely nothing, and you will see how much more you can accomplish in your 24 hours.
