    "We need quiet time to examine our lives openly and honestly. . . spending quiet time alone gives your mind an opportunity to renew itself and create order."

    -- Susan Taylor


    by Diana Robinson

    It has been said that the unexamined life is not worth living. Unfortunately we are often too busy to take the time for self-examination. As a result we sometimes don't realize that we have deviated from our real goals and purpose. Here are some questions that, if asked regularly, will help to keep oneself on target.

    1. Does my life reflect my values?

    2. What do I want my life to be about?

    3. Do I either know the direction I want my life to go OR have sufficient faith in a higher power to trust that I do not need to know? (This is different from being a straw in the wind.)

    4. Am I putting my time and energy into the areas that are most important to me?

    5. What areas of my life am I short-changing?

    6. Am I giving too much power to negative influences?

    7. Am I unknowingly closing out people I care about?

    8. Am I giving enough time to nurturing/replenishing myself?

    9. Am I cultivating and making room for the influences I want to come into my life?

    10. With all of the above answered, how can I re-allocate my resources, my time and my energy, to reflect my true values and to move me in the direction I am seeking?

    Pounce on a Project for July

    Last month the focus of our call was cleaning up the piles on our desk. We started the day with the quote, "Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up." -- A. A. Milne. So if you want to organize with some fun and companionship, join us in Pounce on a Project on Thursday, July 21st, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Eastern. We will join as a group by phone and declare what you want to accomplish: putting together a new marketing piece, finishing that client project, backing up your computer before you buy a new one, making those cold calls, organizing your office, simplifying your filing system, or cleaning under your bed.

    During the morning, the group will gather by phone a few times to check progress and get any support needed to finish with a bang. At noon, the group will celebrate their accomplishments. Who says projects have to be boring and tedious? Bring your lightness and fun and join us for the energization.

    To sign up or learn more, call or e- mail Andrea by noon on July 20th. Feel free to share this with friends and co-workers, the more the merrier. (Cost of the program is only the cost of long distance phone calls.)
