March Madness - Day 2

Every minute counts!

Busy body, that's me. 😜

As I was leaving the office and walking to my car, I started to consider my options for the evening. It would be the first Friday evening that I wasn't on the road or with my family. That meant I could find lots to get into, right?

I could go get ice cream. 🍨
I could find the mall. 🏬👠👗
I could go home and watch tv. 📺
I could read one of my many books.📘
I could go find something tasty to eat. 🍖🍕🍔🍗
I could ride through neighborhoods for housing options.🏡
I could go see where the middle school and high schools I interested in are located. 🏫

I had lots of options.

But I decided to work my plan. All of my earlier ideas were great, but they would not have allowed me to accomplish the task at hand. Since I was challenged to run one mile per day, I needed to get it done before the darkness became my excuse not to complete the task of the day.

19 Minute Podcast
You see, when you can anticipate your excuses, you need to overcome them.

While I ran for a brief 20 minutes, I listened to a podcast. Physical and mental personal development wrapped into one activity.

No wasted minutes!

Some people wonder how "successful" people become "successful."
There really is no secret. Among a few other things, they simply recognize that every minute counts and they make the most of each minute they get.

How do you currently maximize your minutes? 

If you have not been maximizing your minutes, what is one thing you can start to do today to maximize your minutes?

A Small Tear

I could barely see. 
My eyes felt itchy and irritated. 
I thought I was tired from a full day of work. Sitting at a computer. Taking meetings with clients. Staff meetings. All the work of a typical Friday. But the day was not over. I still had an hour left in my two and a half hour drive down the two-lane, tree surrounded road to Tallahassee. 
I was rubbing my eyes and blinking so much to stop the itch. Nothing was working. Nothing was soothing me. 
I drove in discomfort as long as I could......then I reached my breaking point. 
When I arrived at a stopping point in my travels, I removed my contact lenses. Before I replaced the contacts with glasses, I took a look at the lenses. 
If only I would have recognized the signs sooner....
The left lens had a tear. 
Side note: The thing I have yet to grasp is how a contact lens that is inside the eye gets a tear without even being touched. If you can explain how this happens, feel free to drop the knowledge in the comment section.
In any eve…
