My Paper Was Soaked
it rained after my delivery guy tossed my newspapers into the yard. Both of
them were soaked.
first thought was to take them in the house, spread’em out, dry’em out, and
a thought hit me as if someone had popped me on the back of the head.
is the likelihood that there is anything in those papers that will
affect my daily life? What is the likelihood that I can’t walk in the house and
with a few clicks get whatever is in the papers online?
know, I know…I’ve understood the logic for years, but until this morning the
reality had not hit me.
often in our lives we have to experience the reality of a change—feel it—before
we make it happen in our lives.
quick shower just blew by as I was writing that last sentence. It was almost as
if life was giving me a simple reminder.
staring you in the face? You know the logic of it, but the reality of how it
affects your life really hasn’t bit you? If you’ll go ahead and accept the
reality and act on it how can you use it to change your life for the better?
like walking outside in the morning to get the paper, I enjoy the ritual of
eating a light breakfast and reading, I love the feel of turning the pages of a
newspaper, but are those things enough to keep doing what I’m doing? If they
are, if their value is great enough, that’s fine.
if there is a faster, cheaper, easier, more efficient and more effective way to
reach a goal maybe it’s time to change.
