Good Days…Bad Days With Maureen Pratt

Maureen Pratt Author Pic“I’ll go to the gym instead of taking a nap – I’ll feel more energy afterward.”

“I’ll get this report done before I call a friend; I’ll have time later.”

“I take this easier class instead of the hard one; I’ll get less credit, but I won’t have to work as much.”

Each day, we make decisions to substitute one activity for another – and often, we put off the more important one, or at least the more loving one, and substitute it with something that seems better…maybe.

Once in awhile, this might make sense – work, exercise, balance, each of these and other things are important, too. But sometimes, we opt for the obvious when, if we stretched ourselves a little more, or took a bit more time to consider, we’d decide differently – accepting no substitutes for excellence in our actions.

Today, think about the things you could do to take better care of yourself, your relationships, you job, your well-being. Accept no substitutes for excellence – and go farther than you ever thought possible!

Joys,

Maureen
