GOP riding the momentum of Muracco
This is from Jim Rohn and was used by Dennis Muracco, The District Republican President during last weeks meeting on Getting Things Done Effectively.
"One of the major reasons why we fail to find happiness or to
create a unique lifestyle is because we have not yet mastered
the art of being.
While we are home our thoughts are still absorbed with solving
the challenges we face at the office. And when we are at the
office we find ourselves worrying about problems at home.
We go through the day without really listening to what others
are saying to us. We may be hearing the words, but we aren't
absorbing the message.
As we go through the day we find ourselves focusing on past
experiences or future possibilities. We are so involved in
yesterday and tomorrow that we never even notice that today is
We go through the day rather than getting something from the
day. We are everywhere at any given moment in time except
living in that moment in time.
Lifestyle is learning to be wherever you are. It is
developing a unique focus on the current moment, and drawing
from it all of the substance and wealth of experience and
emotions that it has to offer. Lifestyle is taking time to
watch a sunset. Lifestyle is listening to silence. Lifestyle
is capturing each moment so that it becomes a new part of what
we are and of what we are in the process of becoming.
Lifestyle is not something we do; it is something we
experience. And until we learn to be there, we will never
master the art of living well.
Just remember WHEREVER YOU ARE, BE THERE. When your at work work. When
your at play play. When your talking to your spouse talk to your spouse.
When your talking to your kids talk to your kids. When your at the
dinner table be at the dinner table. When your at the game be at the
game. When your at the show be at the show be there don't let your
mind wander bring your attention back enjoy it for what it is.
Give everyone the gift of attention."
