Create 2013- You do what you want to change!

Sunday, December 02, 2012

The white stuff is on the ground. The holiday music is playing. There are only 28
days left in this year. Another year come and gone. Why does time seem like it flies? Apparently there is no scientific evidence that time passes more quickly the older we get. One theory is that we all just succumb to the folk lore that says
it does. One study suggests that as we age we just don't remember how time felt
when we were younger. Definitely the busier you are the faster time seems to go.

That's why reminders are an important part of staying on track regardless of what it feels like time is doing

In our busy lives it is so easy to lose track of what is important. We focus on
the to-do list of life and let slip the things that are most meaningful to us. You know we all do it.

The trick to keeping the most important things top of mind is to create a system
of reminders. Let's be clear that we are not creating reminders about the 101 things on your to-do list. We are talking about creating reminders to keep us on track with the most important things in our lives: the values we want to honour and the qualities we want to embody.

These reminders can take the form of a word, a phrase, or an affirmation. Sometimes we can use an image that particularly captures the idea. Many people find great quotations that sum up an idea in a few words.

Whatever way we use to remind ourselves, we need to change it up frequently.
We become familiar with things after we have looked at them for a while and eventually don't really notice them at all. So keep it fresh. We need to be disciplined to get the rewards from creating these kind of reminders.
