I remember being bored a lot as a kid.
I would say to my grandmother, I’m bored.
Grandma Darling would say back, “Hi Bored; it’s nice to meet you.”
So when my kids were young, I did the opposite with my kids.
I kept them busy.
I made them learn to play the violin starting at the age of 3.
My daughters didn’t have a choice.
We practiced every night for 20-30 mins.
Sometimes the fighting would be longer than the practice time.
The reward was attending a recital and listening to my little girls play a beautiful piece of music.
As a recovering Tiger Mom, when you don’t have someone else telling you what to do,
we end up pushing off the task.
We have too many other things we prioritize or would rather do.
We all have to do something we don’t want to do… but doing it gives us protection and
insurance that we often need.
It’s hard to get the One Thing done.
We have to find our inner tiger to focus on The One Thing.
The One Thing book by Gary Keller, “Keller describes the search for the ‘One Thing’ tightly: “What’s the One Thing you can do this week (day/month or year) such that by doing it, everything else would be easier or unnecessary?”
He reports that where he has had huge success, it was always a function of narrowing his concentration down to one thing - and the converse was true too.
For me, I need to focus on my One Thing.
Focus: Write up a lengthy operations guide for my business and also upgrade some of my technology stack.
So I can become more efficient and improve my customer service.
Writing up an operational document isn’t a glamorous job to do, but I have to do it.
I have to make my operational document into a piece of art or my battle cry.
Because the energy I put into this document is the energy I will get out of it.
My reward? I will get a mani and pedi and take my girls to see Barbie ;-)
To get something done or address a potential problem, we might need an accountability partner. I didn't come up with the idea alone -
A friend who is a consultant convinced me to create this document.

Thank you for reading!!
