"Where are you?" It was a man's voice; I couldn't tell whose. "You're late!"
What had happened to my alarm clock? I opened my eyes. Wait, where was my phone? Not in my bed, or on my nightstand. I staggered to my desk. No calls had come in. Like that infamous episode of Dallas, it was all a dream.
So that panicked wake-up call had come from, well, me. And what did it mean?
I've known for a while now that 2011 would be a year of major transitions in my work life and personal life, and the rude awakening was, I think, my way of reminding myself that I needed to take action.
Part of that action is a major writing project, which this blog will be evolving into, meaning I'll be posting here much more frequently.
The other is remembering, every day, these guidelines for constructive living from David Reynolds:
- Pay attention.
- Know your purpose.
- Do what needs to be done.
(Sounds easy, but isn't. Want to learn more? Visit the ToDo Institute.)
Here's to a happy, and awakened, new year.
