Doing the right Musts

“A bird does not sing because he has an answer. He sings because he has a song.”

A friend of mine write an occasional email newsletter and this dropped into my inbox this morning. Funny how these things, whilst entirely coincidental, alway seem to be timely? In the newsletter they goes on to say that they’ve been doing “more shoulds than musts, and it doesn’t feel good”. It’s something I’ve noted in myself recently, and have been rectifying.

Of course the secret, for me, is positioning the things you must do to be the things that are good for you. I MUST write more regularly even if it’s only a small amount (hello versus I SHOULD take out the trash. Simple adjustments, big wins.
