The Power of Reflection

 I was out shoveling early this morning with my youngest son. He said, ‘Dad, why don’t we get a snow blower?’ 

I said, “I have one. His name is David. Now get back to work.” 😊


I read an article this morning that said the average American quits his/her new year’s resolution today (01FEB2021). 


What about you? Where are you with your goals to grow and move the needle this year? What needs to be reevaluated? Re-Prioritized? 


I also read a subsequent article extolling the virtues of ‘reflection time’built into the day. The article went onto say that if we can make ‘Pause Opportunities’ a part of our regular, daily routine, our goals become that much more achievable. The pace of this life can be overwhelming. I know for me- I have an app that reminds every day at 10AM to pause, focus on my breathing- and slow my pace to gauge where I am mentally.**


I am hopeful you can take a few quiet moments today. Listen to the story you are telling yourself. Prepare your mind for the growth opportunities you have set for the year. And then, get after it. 


I am in your corner- Win the Day- pja


Without reflection, we go blindly on our way, creating more unintended consequences and failing to achieve anything useful.” ~Margaret J. Wheatley

**Just because the app reminds me to ‘Pause”…doesn’t mean I always do it. I am a work in progress. 😊
