It’s a new week. Let’s GO!

I’m sure you’ve been swimming around in your head long enough. Time to lose those fins and walk on dry land. Look down, right now, right where you are. The earth beneath your feet stood under dinosaurs. And if we’re lucky, it will continue to serve long after we’re gone. To stand on it is a gift.

I heard a guy at the park the other day singing a familiar song “Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream.” For the first time, I heard the words. That simple song was talking about the journey of life, its movement forward and its brevity. A dream is a pretty short time.

Where will you leave your footprints? What marks are important? Make the targets clear. Each day we consume a very valuable, very limited resource.

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” Howard Thurman

RETHINKING

The “THIS WEEK” part of UPWORD has always disturbed me. It sounds like another “to-do” or another thing to feel guilty about not doing, so I’m eliminating it.

Here’s what I suggest. Add the weekly word to an UPWORD index card and remind yourself each morning. Set the intention to listen. Then wait and watch. Strange intersections will happen, someone will randomly mention the word or you will have a thought drop from the sky. It could be anything. The excitement of the adventure!
