Today was a rest day on the Quest. I came home late on Thursday night, and had an early start today.
I decided to use my time processing my day yesterday. Getting a feel for my various meetings, the questions I was asked, and my thoughts about the opportunity.
What I learned today is that every Quest also requires a down day once and a while. A slow day.
It’s a day to rest and reflect on perspective, and my place in it all.
Yesterday, I mentioned that I would take a step today – any step – in the direction of my passion and dreams.
It was a small step, but it helped. I found a company that is doing great work helping entrepreneurs to leverage their results from their business. My small step was to evaluate them, and formulate my contact plan. I now have that ready to go.
The end result of this step was that I settled into a calm in which I knew all would work out. I knew that the path I’m currently on was the right path. It fits.
Action is the key, when not knowing what to do. I still feel empowered – an after-effect from that small action taken many hours ago.
Today, I had a rather large and daunting to-do list. It was so large, that it felt overwhelming.
So, I decided to start the first item on the list – to take the first step towards its’ completion.
That first step immediately released energy, direction and passion for the task at hand. It also gave me focus to be completely present and in the moment.
It stuck with me all day today, and I’m proud of what I accomplished.
It’s amazing what taking the first, small step towards a larger goal can do. I liken it to the call to a quest.
Starting is the key to any call and any quest!
Today, I was reflecting on my Quest. I learned that I have no broad answers today about the quest. And, to be honest, I don’t have any small insights either.
What I do know is that I have to keep moving forward, to take the next step.
Sometimes that’s all we’ve got to go on in a given day, and sometimes that’s enough.
