Day 70 of 100 Days of Good Karma.
Have you ever had a day that goes entirely according to schedule?
I don’t remember the last time that happened.
I don’t think it’s ever happened.
I usually have a plan for how I expect the day to go, but life doesn’t really care what my plans are. So I schedule in the things that are important to me.
Writing and running are at the top of that list.
I get the kids ready for school in the morning so I get up early to write. I used to do this when I worked, too. The practice worked then and it works now.
I work out after I drop the kids off. This works for me because I’m already dressed for it.
Sometime back I changed my nightly habits to include laying out gym clothes. I’ve found if I wake up and put on normal clothes I won’t go to the gym.
So I put gym clothes on first thing in the morning.
I build these activities into my schedule because they’re important to me. I don’t wait for conditions to be perfect.
There’s always some reason to sleep late. To leave writing until later in the day or to skip the gym.
Today’s silver lining: Productive daily habits.
They keep my priorities in line.
What’s your silver lining today? I love comments!
