Time flies, doesn’t it?
Recently, I sat down to look at my progress for the new year (2017). While reviewing, I am reminded of the story of Maui (source). Maui tried to stop the sun’s relentless progress every day so the people in his village could get things done.
And he failed.
While working on a blog post for a business, my friend referenced an interview in Forbes where a CEO explains how he runs two companies (source).
One thing he said stood out the most.
He found a way that works for him.
In other words, there’s no such thing as a perfect solution. You have to find the solution that works for you. In the race to get things done before the sun sets, I realize many “get things done” solutions I have tried simply failed.
One thing is obvious.
We all need a day off to ourselves. Jack uses Saturdays to get away and Sundays to review. These two days are a common theme as old as time itself.
In many cultures, Sunday is often regarded as a day of rest. This serves as a reminder of what does work. Upon reflection, I too recognize this routine as my parents often did on Sundays.
In fact, whenever I am away from home (which in context refers to my heart where my family is), Sundays is the day we catch up using Skype.
However, creating such routines is something I struggle with in today’s world. The demand to succeed often clouds simple things. For now, I will attempt to do the same thing with my website for the month of February.
The goal is to see what kind of progress I make by setting a theme for each day. This might allow me to prioritize what needs to be done each day more efficiently.
Including reflecting on your feedback and creating a strategy for the week.
Share Your Sunday Theme
Note that I am not asking about theming your sundae, a sweet ice cream dessert. Rather the day of the week. However, you are welcome to share your thoughts on theming your sundae if you like.
It does seem appropriate to enjoy a sundae theme on Sundays.
For example, my only sweet tooth vice in the world is found in Wildwood, New Jersey at Duffer’s. As described on their menu,
Special Sundaes > Reeses Peanut Butter Cup
A Marriage of Two Delicious Favorites—Our Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream and Reeses Peanut Butter Cups Held Together by a Bond of Chocolate Syrup and Topped with a Veil of Whipped Cream and a Cherry.
I’ll tell ya this much. I damn all Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Cups Ice Cream Sundaes to hell because I can not turn one down.
Tell me, do you theme your Sundays?
