You don’t have to know. But then the day may meander and sometimes, that is ok. But when you add those days up, you will have to wonder what it then adds up to.
I plan my time. I can’t help it – I am organised as opposed to spontaneous. I am meticulous as opposed to big picture hazy. And I find that if I just let go, let it flow, then I let whatever happens, just happen. The only problem with that is that things don’t happen. By that I mean that lots happen but not the lots of stuff that I need to have happen.
If you have goals, and places you need to be, and things you need to have, it just simply doesn’t happen simply because you wish it so, no matter how matter times you put it out in the ether. You actually have to work at it, day after day, week after week.
If you just let things be, then things do just become, the day passes in a flash and before you know it, it’s gone.
You don’t really want to live your life, and at the end of it, say that you really wanted something yet didn’t find it in you to make it happen? That you expected that it would somehow all come together for you?
If you want something to happen, you have to make it happen. You have to put in the time, energy and space to make it happen. Not once, not twice. Everyday. For many days. Until it becomes second nature. Until it is ingrained in muscle memory. Until it becomes easier to do than not to do.
And so you have to ask yourself – what of all the things you want, do you want to spend this kind of time and energy on, to make happen? Because you simply cannot have it all. You must choose. And focus.
I know what I need… more importantly, want, to do tomorrow. I know because I know where I am going.
Do you know where you want to be?
Do you want to do what it takes to get there?
