Here’s a Secret to Success from Lights On Book. Most successful, achieving, Women Leaders understand that excellence is a habit and repeatedly demonstrate that it takes holding a vision and setting goals to move forward with gusto, and to be overall happy while keeping life in perspective.
Robert Heinlein wrote that “in the absence of clearly-defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily acts of trivia until ultimately we are enslaved by it.” (Rambling, without focus is not how we want to be or end up!)
So therein is an important insight: Successful, achieving Women Leaders have their Lights On!–they know where they’re going and how they plan to get there! They also know how to find harmony to both achieve their goals and to rest– to be nurtured for the next day’s calling.
Life has a rhythm, a pattern. We create our own patterns. Just as there is white space between the written words, just as there are rest notes between the notes of the musical score, so there are pauses between our actions–brief pauses between our goal achievements. So breathe, rest, and rejoice between those achieving moments, then move on to the next goal activity; there is a natural pattern to successful living!
