Today I received the gift of 24 hours. I started my day with a short bike ride. Stationary of course, living in WI the weather is not always conducive to riding outside. I get a cup of tea and then start journaling. I place my mind in a good spot by writing down 3 things I’m grateful for. Then I focus on my tasks for that day.
With each day I create my life one day at a time. I choose to work at an office. I choose who I spend time with and what I do. I can choose to mentally live in the past, the present or the future.
Sometimes I have to wake up and remember to stay in the present. But each of those little choices lead to big progress. I am always amazed on how time flies by. I learned if I do the little things, they lead to accomplishing big goals.
We just completed another tax season. I made some big choices like hiring a seasonal tax preparer and implementing new software, Liscio. Both were excellent choices! I also made little choices like using labels, templates and creating tax return quotes at the beginning of the season. All the choices created a very successful season this year.
How do you use your gift of time?
