Clouds. They are sure around a lot early in the morning in our part of the world. This helps us appreciate the various colors of silver that are present. Today was a showing up kind of day for our sunrise 90 day goal.
We came out and grabbed our shot as you can see.
As we typed this out for you, the clouds broke literally for a minute. Just enough for Mr. Sun to emerge and offer dark contrast against the clouds.
Then the clouds shifted in front again.
The key goal getting lesson here is that:
crazy good things happen when you show up consistently
You have those days where you don’t feel like doing the work. You see that the conditions are less than optimal.
These are the days to simply show up. You agree with yourself to just be present for the minimum effective dose just as a doctor would prescribe.
This could look like for you agreeing to a 10 minute workout when you are dog tired. You get to your desk and make 3 sales phone calls instead of the 18 you normally do. For me, it’s going to the dojo 15 minutes late rather than skipping the training because of a traffic jam.
These show up days add up and count towards your goal achievement.
We beat Mr. Sun this morning before he crested the hill by the pond. It seemed like he was taking forever to rise for the shot. But we got it. Interesting contrast this morning. The faint clouds moving in front of Mr. Sun acted like a dimmer switch. The light was awesome how it shifted and changed.
The other excellent aspect of this morning was the chorus of ducks and geese battling for position in the pond. But this required listening.
