She can always tell when I'm overwhelmed. And for some reason she always asks me if I've made my list. Actually, I know the reason. It's because making a list works for me. Somehow the task at hand seems so much more manageable when it's all there on the paper. As I complete one task on the list, I put a big check mark by it. Each check mark is a little power gem, giving me enough energy, resolve, and focus to complete the next task.
To be quite honest, I am a little overwhelmed with the idea of becoming tough. I'm not even sure I know what it means. Even with using Sarah Connor as model/inspiration, the whole thing seems too nebulous to manage. So for the next day or so, I will be working on my List. Three or four long-term goals, and my mid- and short-term plans to get me on the right track.
Thomas Edison said, "Vision without execution is hallucination." Well, I'm not hallucinating; I'm making an executable plan.
And while I'm thinking loftily about my future mind/body/spirit, I ought not to neglect today. Here are a few things I want to put a big check mark by before the end of the day:
- Incline Running 15 Minutes
- 30 Sumo/Chair Jacks
- 20 Bicep Curls
- 20 Tricep Kick-backs
- 20 Back Flys
- 20 Overhead Tricep Extentions
- 20 In & Out Straight Arm Shoulder Flys
- 20 Hammer Curls
- 20 Lawnmowers
- Drink 4 Huge Glasses of Water
