Quote of the Day
“What you measure you are positioned to create.”
Thought of the Day
Are You Measuring Up
The things that you measure will be the things you create because that will be where you are putting your focus.
What are you measuring?
You can keep a list of all your woes or you can keep a list of how you are overcoming the woes – the difference makes the difference.
Both provide accountability for what you are going through. One focuses on the problems and the other focuses on the possibilities.
If you know that you are going to grow where you are measuring then make a determined effort to measure up.
Challenge for Intentional Actions
Take time to measure up.
Make a list of all the problems or struggles you are facing.
Define what it will mean to overcome them.
Come up with 3 – 5 ideas that could help remove the problems or begin to reduce its pressure.
By measuring up you see the problem but focus on the way to overcome.

Review Your Position
The second step for living a balanced life is to review your options and you start that process by looking at your position.
- Where are you? Define your current situation – the moment to moment reality of your day.
- Are you stagnant or stuck? Determine if you are comfortable in your uncomfortable are locked in a box someone else built.
Where do you want to be? Describe your perfect day – one that you would be content repeating over and over.
Do you want to float or do you want to fly? Consider if you would be happy just getting there or just getting by or if you want to reach for the stars.
What can you do right now? Think about the move or moves you can make in your current moment.
Reviewing your current position makes it possible to get your balance for the next step.
