Each New Tomorrow

No one day is like another, each tomorrow has its special miracle, its magic moment in which old universes are destroyed and new starts created. Paulo Coelho.

Living at the speed we do today, it’s all too easy to miss life’s special moments.

The pace is frenetic, the stress and strain unrelenting. As you navigate life’s twists and turns, life can easily catch up to you if you are not careful. We’re so focused on the big stuff that we can often overlook the seemingly little things and significant moments that can make such a difference to our lives and those around us who really matter.

Crazy times. And it doesn’t look like they are going away any time soon. We’re all so busy… just trying to keep up, “staying alive”, as the expression goes.

Sound familiar?

So, how can you reduce the pressure on your everyday activities and make more time to make each new tomorrow more meaningful?

For starters, here are five suggestions:

  1. Adopt an attitude of gratitude. Notice and give thanks for what you have rather than bemoan what you haven’t.
  2. Share hope, not negativity and cynicism.
  3. Spend judiciously. Whether it is a shiny new thing or a slick new service, pause before buying and ask yourself, “Do I really need this or would I simply like it?”
  4. Pay attention to the time on social media you are spending. It will eat up hours of your day if you let it.
  5. Choose your friends with care. If you strive to be spiritually strong, supportive and positive, seek those characteristics in others and help them develop those traits by living them yourself.

Of course, there are demands on your time and obligations that must be met but there is only so much of you to go around. Give yourself a break. You’re the only one who will.

Life is too precious and time is too short to fritter away even one day.

Make every one count and welcome each new tomorrow.

Just Say Yes

It’s not the light that we need, but fire; it’s not the gentle shower, but the thunder. We need the storm. Frederick Douglas.

the-power-of-yes-drew-simmie

There is power in words. One of the most powerful is YES!

Yes. It’s OK to put your work out into the world.

Yes. You are capable of doing good work and making a difference.

Yes. What you are doing is important.

The future beckons…

At this moment in history there is no shortage of people eager to deny the truth, to exclude, to criticize, turn a blind eye, close off their hearts and say NO.

The ‘Yes’ crowd has always been in the minority but today, more than ever, there has never been a greater need for people to do the right things rather than doing things right: People to step up to the plate and say YES!

Stay interested. Stay interesting. Stay relevant.  

As always, thank you for reading me. I hope to see you here again soon.

Play The Game

The here and now is all we have and if we play it right, it’s all we need. Ann Richards.

appreciate-the-moment-drew-simmie

In the game of life, the most important moment is the present moment.

Many of us live out our lives with one eye on the past, a past that’s already gone – and the other on the future, that’s not here yet. Choosing to live in the past or in the future steals your todays and robs you of living to the fullest.

Live forward. Never Look back.

Nobody knows how things will turn out. Give each day your best shot. When you have gone as far as you can go, you’ll know what to do next.

It’s not whether you win or lose, it is how you play the game.

Stay interested. Stay interesting. Stay relevant.  

As always, thank you for reading me.

I hope to see you here again soon.

Never Give Up On You

It isn’t down on any map. The true places never are. Herman Melville.

never-give-up-on-yourself-drew-simmie-2

Life isn’t always sunshine and roses. Sometimes it’s bloody tough.

When it’s the latter and there are days when your courage is thin, double down. If it’s a big problem, break it up into smaller, manageable bits. Find the solution, one bit at a time.

Remember, life is a marathon, not a sprint. Take each day as it comes and show up for work everyday.

With so many changes pressing, it isn’t going to be easy, but hey, no one ever promised easy.

New opportunities abound. Keep on marching ahead.

Never, ever, give up on you.

Stay interested. Stay interesting. Stay relevant. 

I hope to see you back here soon.

As always, thank you for reading me.

Leadership Now

People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel. Maya Angelou.

personal-leadership-drew-simmie

In these challenging times, when so much seems totally out of whack, when fake news is given unwarranted currency, when leadership at all levels is so often wanting, keeping ourselves on the straight and narrow and focused on what is meaningful in our lives demands personal leadership.

Real leaders take responsibility for themselves. They are absolutely clear about their path. They lead with constant self-awareness, passion and grace.

Personal leadership is all about being real, authentic; being open to others and receptive to ideas different from ours.  It is about staying committed through thick and thin, and having the courage to do the right things, rather than doing things right.

Leadership, as it is often said, is like good art. We can’t always describe exactly what it is but we know it when we see it.

And we certainly need it. Like right now
