March 27 – May 3, 2009
I, Vasilly, being of kinda sound mind and body, have willingly decided to try to do one thing consistently every single day for the next 37 days. C’mon, self, it’s just 37 days. The one thing I will try to do every day is this:
Pay attention. Pay attention to the world around me and stop living so much in my head. By looking around more and noticing what I have and what others need, I can become a better partner to the world.
I’m not going to pick two things or nine things because that will dilute my focus –- just one thing. One. One simple action. An action, not a goal. An action, not a value. An action, not a wish. Something I can DO.
I’m doing this challenge at this time because:
I know by not paying attention I’m missing out on some of the beauty in this world. Paying attention means taking a breath and focusing on things outside of myself.
I’ve chosen this particular daily action because I believe if I do it consistently for 37 days with no (NONE, ZERO, ZIP) exceptions, I will:
be experiencing the world around me better. No more being so focused on going from place a to place b that I’m unaware of my surroundings. No more being so focused on tasks that I become lost to all those around me.
I also realize that this contract is solely with myself and carries no rewards, penalties or punishments other than those associated with the reflection of the strength of my character.
New things will happen for me.
TODAY IS DAY ONE.
