The more we hone our productivity skills the more rigid we often become. We determine which routines work the best and allow maximum results with minimum effort. Yet we are always going to be faced with unforeseen circumstances that keep us from sticking to our daily plan for success and this is when we need to regroup and make the most of what we have to work with.
As a little bump in the road, I had to stay home for the morning to take care of Tyson while Liz got back some of the sleep she was unable to receive after an unusually active night. At first I was a little thrown off, but I quickly saw the silver lining as I was able to spend this time with one of my most favoritest dudes.
So I just wanted to use this as an opportunity to remind myself as well as the Motivate Thyself readers that there’s always lemonade to be made with the often abundant lemons that life deals us. Don’t let these unforeseen circumstances throw you off or keep you from reaching your goals. Just accept the situation, make the proper adjustments and appreciate what you’ve been given to work with. Then, at the end of the day, you can look back and see the strides you made in spite of, as well as because of, these unique events.
