Routine Routines

There is a danger with some routines.  That danger is that they become, well too routine.  They become mindless things that we just go through the motions to complete.  Now with some routines this is perfectly fine.  My morning routine is one that I have on autopilot, which is exactly its purpose.  To make sure […]

Men Who Stare at Trees

One of the first things I do when I get into work is to pull out my Inner Balance sensor and fire up the app to do some Balanced Breathing to get centered before I start work in earnest.  But I got to admit some days I cheat.  I will fire up my computer and […]

Goal Crusher!

Well it’s a start Just wanted to briefly check in and report that last week I did in fact run on three separate occasions.  Once on the treadmill at work and twice on the road.  I can tell you it felt good to get the blood flowing again albeit at a slow pace. This week […]

So in the previous post I started to elaborate on what it is I exactly do to stay on task and focused.  The first step, often the hardest, is recognizing when I get distracted or off task.  Most often, I notice it happening after lunch.

Sunday, Fun-day3

So yesterday on our day 2 I busted my wife.  No harm, no foul, this is tough.  Especially, giving up things that are as much as a routine as anything else.  Her coffee routine is pretty well ingrained and coffee creamer and sweetener is the toughest “change” we have both had to make.  I was […]

Saturday, we can do this!

Oh how I love Saturdays! I love that I get to sleep in on Saturdays.  Instead of being woken up by my fitbit at 5:30 on Saturdays my daughter wakes me up by ‘singing’ at 7:30.  After many smiles from the little girl and an 8 oz bottle of formula its back to sleep for […]
