#Trust30 Day 14 – One Thing by Colin Wright

One Thing by Colin Wright 

Do your work, and I shall know you. Do your work, and you shall reinforce yourself. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Take a moment, step back from your concerns, and focus on one thing: You have one life to achieve everything you’ve ever wanted. Sounds simple, but when you really focus on it, let it seep into your consciousness, you realize you only have about 100 years to get every single thing you’ve ever wanted to do. No second chances. This is your only shot. Suddenly, this means you should have started yesterday. No more waiting for permission or resources to start. Today is the day you make the rest of your life happen. Write down one thing you’ve always wanted to do and how you will achieve that goal. Don’t be afraid to be very specific in how you’ll achieve it: once you start achieving, your goals will get bigger and your capability to meet them will grow.

Today’s Sentence:

Sometimes you have to step outside your comfort zone – and hold your breath.

My One Thing:

Well, most of my “I’ve always wanted to…” are rather big things – like extended travel.  These things require resources (money, time, Micki’s good health).  And while saying that you need to act on them now resources or no is all well and good, the reality is – some things simply do require resources and do take long times to achieve.

In the spirit of accomplishing something though, I’ll go back to my idea of finally getting myself a violin and learning to play.  My goal was to get it for myself by Samhain (Oct. 31).  To ensure this, I’ll set aside a reasonable small goal of $5 a week set aside to go towards the violin (yes I do have one picked out so I can pretty reasonably figure out how much I need to save to do this).  Life happens emergencies aside this should be a fairly reasonable and accomplishable thing I’ve always wanted to do. 😀
