Inner Journey:


“Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.”
— Don Marquis

Most of us struggle with procrastination — the ‘I’ll do it later’ syndrome. If this is one of your key time wasters, take time to become more aware of your behaviour.
• Identify what you are procrastinating.
• Identify why you have not done these things. Seek out your deepest reason.
• Is there a fear underlying your reason? There is for most people.

We typically procrastinate because of unclear goals, lack of information and/or skills, fear of moving into new territory, fear of failure or success, feeling overwhelmed, lack of time due to over-commitments, poor timing, and general disorganization.

“Much of the stress that people feel doesn’t come from having too much to do. It comes from not finishing what they started.”
— David Allen

And, just for fun: “The best labor saving device is doing it tomorrow.”
— Source Unknown


A Note from the Universe

There was a time in the life of every hero, champion, master, and tycoon, when they said to themselves, “I will not wait any longer.”

And no matter how near or far away their dream then seemed, they began to take action, every day, no matter what.

No matter what

Daily Wisdom
October 14, 2021

“The better part of happiness is to wish to be what you are.”

-Desiderius Erasmus (1466-1536)

There’s an old saying that “Happiness is not having what you want, but wanting what you have.” When we know who we are, when we understand the truth of our greatness, we will know happiness because we will never wish to be anything other than ourselves.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: Wheel of Fortune

Restlessness and boredom could slow you down and take you off on some unintended tangent. If you can’t break free of the usual routine today, do what’s necessary and perhaps schedule more delicate tasks for another time when it will be easier to be precise and attend to details. Know your own limits and if possible don’t take on something that will only frustrate you. If you must, start slow.
