Some people don’t think everything happens for a reason. I am not that person. Just take the recent example of thinking I might try to learn 7 languages. Whether this works out of not, it led to a number of benefits. I became motivated to blog again, I found a shorter bio on the end of my museletter and used it for a competition, I started writing short blogs (yay!) and I wrote out a list of my priorities and realised that publishing books was at the top.
Now when I decide what to do with my time, I glance at this list of five to help me decide what is most important. Because sometimes things that are urgent take up our time but there are also important things that need doing and scheduling in. So, even if I am not yet writing about learning 7 languages, this emphasis on priorities and scheduling will be a key to success. Right?!
Scheduling may not sound sexy but it is. It allows us to have more free time. When I was recovering from the brain surgery in 2016, the only book I allowed into my atmosphere were L’Art de la Simplicite by Dominique Loreau (The Art of Simplicity), and I implemented it. This is still paying off.
But anyway, this is not a blog post about scheduling (it ain’t that sexy!). What if everything happens for a reason?! Like cancer. I know it sucks massively and all, for everyone involved, but personally I’ve received such gifts from having cancer. And I do think that illness is here to teach us something. But that’s me.
How about you?
