Yesterday I had a meeting at work and learned how to increased satisfaction in the work place. I'm a health care worker and I take care of the dying and support the families. What I learned is AIDET.

A ACKNOWLEDGE
I INTRODUCE
D DURATION
E EXPLANATION
T THANK YOU

I was surprise that I use all of these and did not know this existed. I also noticed looking back at my last appointments that this was used on me. I was always satisfied in how my appointments went and I felt I was listened to. When all is said and done, a lot more will have been said than done.

Single step

Friday, August 10, 2012

2009 I bicycle 105 miles in one day. It took me 8 hrs and 45 minutes. Some said this would be impossible but I broke it down into possibilities.

My possibilities were
1. I can build up my endurance and strengthen my legs. I ran on the treadmill and used weight machines.
2. I can eat well and I lost weight.
3. I can bicycle 50 to 80 miles per week all Summer.
4. Have good mind set. I CAN DO THIS. Did not listen any negative thoughts.

So it was possible for me to do the impossible. I look at all my possibilities and made them happen. I listen to my body for pushing forward and ignored my mental negative thoughts. The journey was hard especially the last 50 miles. I was physically and mentally tired, but my desire to accomplish this was stronger. On this journey I began with a single step and that was to break down the impossible.

  


Forward again

Today I started back running after taking 2 weeks off from illness. The run was hard but was able to push through and finish my time. Its amazing only a few weeks off from running how I lost some endurance. My goal is to move forward and build my endurance up again.

Yesterday I had the worst day ever. I thought could this really be happening. I spent time in prayer and slowly peace came upon me. The smoke, dust settled and today looks like a different day. I feel more at peace and happy. Believe me I still have the problem but I have a different outlook of it. You see newborn chicks doesn't know it's alive until its world begins to crumble. What seems like the collapse of my world may be just an exciting beginning. Here to a new day!!

    I love your ability to turn your view of the situation around. We are in control of our emotions - we can see the glass half full or half empty. That's what makes us different from the other animals. Good job & cheers to your exciting beginning - what ever it may be. Good Luck!!
