The Day Your World Stood Still

One More week till the end of the year, and you need to take at least ONE day of it to do this week’s Tip!

The Beauty of the world is that it doesn’t STOP moving no matter how you decide to live, it just doesn’t wait for you to be satisfied with your decisions, or even gives you a break to catch up with what’s happening around you 🙂 .

In our best efforts to reduce the speed of time, we need to acknowledge that we shall never succeed, cause the same 24 hours a day / 7 days  a week were given to both you, and Albert Einstein; to you and to everyone else…

This week’s Tip, is about how to Race against Time, by Stopping for a day… And during the day where your World Will Stand Still here’s what you need to do:

  1. Stop Looking forward: Don’t worry about the Future during that day… You had and will have 364 other days to do so
  2. Reflect: In order to excel in almost anything, you need to take a look back and reflect on what happened during your life (both short term and long term)
  3. Evaluate: Both Good Things and Bad things need to be evaluated, you see some good things brought bad things along, and several bad things led to great things… so Evaluate the Good & Bad..
  4. Appreciate: The person you have become TODAY… The sum of the events that you lived have led to this day, to this person you’re seeing in the mirror… Whether you liked that person or not… it doesn’t matter Today… It’s Who you are! and while Your World is Standing Still… Take a deep breath, count your blessings and realize that YOU hold the key to your Tomorrow! and no one else.

I normally do this trick, on the 31st of December… It takes me usually 1 hour during that day… And during that day… During that Hour, I really don’t care about what the next day will bring cause  I will deal with it later on… Only today, it’s all about Me, Myself and My World!
