Week 13 – Never allow the day to end with a failure…

A shorty this week.

I found a key phrase in Scroll 3 was to never allow a day to end in failure. I suppose we should invert that to read “always end your day with a success”. Og offers to keep focusing on your DMP driven task or goal until you have succeeded. I think that is a wonderful suggestion and path in achieving what you set out to do that day. However, I think there comes a point that if, as an example, you have set out to make calls until you find the “yes” you desire, it may just get to be an inappropriate hour to call folks. Not everyone lives by the compass rather than the clock ;-).

From my chair, to  only acknowledge success in a single area of your life is setting up a very narrow existence. I don’t think it’s practical to expect recordable successes in every corner of our world every day. We strive for perfection, we should be grateful for excellence.

When less than desired outcomes may be the reality in one or more of our life centres on a given day, recognize and reach out to achieve something wonderful in another area. It’s almost never, ever too early or too late in the day to be of service to someone in some small way. Folding some laundry, wiping down the table or counter, organizing a video collection, reviewing a child’s homework, writing a love letter or email can bring deep satisfaction. If you have an opportunity to close your day with the embrace or kiss of a loved one, or to offer a moment of encouragement to another traveller on this journey, your day will end well.

I hope everyone had an excellent Christmas. Time to start tooling up for a fabulous 2016. Thank you for being part of this excellent adventure!

  1. Enjoyed your post coming from your heart. Your take on the end of the day can be successful in other areas of life and not necessarily have to be work related. Compliment, helping to do things you see needing done, loving others and just being there sometimes when someone needs you. Love shown through. Blessings on your continued journey.
