Find Time to Do What You Can Because You Can Absolutely Thrive in 2012!

Finding time is always a challenge, and when you have big dreams and goals, it can really feel overwhelming.  That’s why I so love the third in our series of quotes … because when you do what you can, absolutely anything is possible.

To do what you can isn’t about skill or ability so much as it is about choice and will.  Here is the quotation, the third in our series, from someone who might be called an authority on doing what one can … Helen Keller:

 I am only one; but still I am one.  I cannot do everything, but I still can do something.  I will not refuse to do the something I can do. Helen Keller

There are 3 keys here, to my mind.

  1. One is to be able to see, in any given moment, what is possible.  Sometimes this means “chunking” your tasks into smaller pieces so that they are doable in smaller increments of time.  Other times it may mean simply starting in on an item on your To Do List.  I know from experience that often a job that looks overwhelming from the outside, becomes quite manageable as soon as you begin.  So don’t be afraid to begin!
  2. The second key really reinforces the first.  It has to do with boundaries and with fully assimilating and accepting that you are one.  You cannot be all things to all people.  You are you, and that is plenty.  The more you can take this in the better you will be able to keep your eye on what is possible, rather than getting caught up in all of the possibilities!
  3. The third key is to be willing to do what you can.  That’s what Helen Keller is speaking about in her final sentence, above.

These two keys:  vision and willingness will enable you to thrive during 2012 … and that is my heartfelt wish for you as we travel the path of Heart-Based Time Management™ together.  Happy New Year!
