Good morning day.
I am awake, three hours of sleep and I feel fine. I am sharp and ready to go. I’ll have to see how sharp I feel come Monday when I’ve had to get up at five and four a.m. over the weekend for drill, but today I feel fine.
Today I have to get some last minute juggling done in order to get into school for the Winter Term. The red tape and hurdles has been unbelievable, yet I cannot blame it on the school… I didn’t try enough.
Last night I started on things, as Covey would write, Quadrant 2 things, as I sometimes do, and it is when I am doing these things that I get a feeling. This feeling is akin to one piloting his course with a sailboat. It is the feeling I get when I walk into class to take the final exam, carrying no notes at all, just a pen and paper and a cup of coffee and a smile. It is the feeling of being prepared and ready for whatever comes my way. It is opposite the feeling of carrying a stack of notes and reviewing them while on the train and later, minutes before the test is passed out.
This morning I have made steps into Quadrant 2 and I am happy.
Books that I bought yesterday….
I’ve not gotten into them much…. but I anticipate doing so. This morning I also took down Awakening to the Sacred from my bookshelf and thumbed through it. I wish to revisit this book as well.
I am throwing my hat in the ring for manager at the club. If I make it I will have an opportunity to develop my management abilities and add to my experience in the industry. If I go into business consulting… I will have definite experience in many areas of the food service/club industry. If I do not get the management job, I’ll still have my waitstaff job. Either way I will continue in my school and developing where I can.
For now, it is a blessed day and the gods are dancing in the rain drops. I love the grey breeze through the mossy fir branches.
