Inner Journey:


“The indispensable first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: decide what you want.”
— Ben Stein

A Hot List is basically a to-do list with one key difference: it only includes topics or tasks that really matter to you, those that genuinely affect your quality of life. You know — the ones you never get around to! The ones that will make your life your own!

Keep a prioritised Hot List handy to remind you to claim 5 to 15 minutes to focus on and write about what counts in your life. Even 5 minutes is better than nothing. Start small and the momentum will build.

“You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage — pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically — to say ‘no’ to other things. And the way you do that is by having a bigger ‘yes’ burning inside.”
— Stephen Covey

Daily Wisdom
October 6, 2021

“I’ve learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances.”

-Martha Washington

I think it was Abraham Lincoln who later said: “We’re about as happy as we make up our minds to be.” Events and circumstances change all around us, all the time. And yet our spirit remains present throughout. In difficulties, it doesn’t retreat to wait on more ideal times. We can choose our attitude. So why not choose to garner insight and make the most of any condition?

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Magician

You might be set up to be the smart one and solve a problem or two for someone else. While it might be your idea of fun to perform and be clever, try to keep things simple, especially if this is a work-related issue. It will cost you little or no effort and win you a lot of admiration, and maybe some monetary reward later.
