"Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability."
This quote really resonated with me this week (O.K., I confess, it resonated for this whole past month). When the weather is hot, it is tough to move. We slow down. At first I thought this was a bad thing, but I'm now realizing that hot weather or not, it is often important pace yourself. There is a rhythm to life and the key is to find the rhythm that suits YOU and suits you at a particular time for particular tasks.
This week: Take some time to reflect. Slow down. Take the time to look at how you pace yourself. What is your rhythm? Are you slow and steady? Fast and driven? Stopped? Think back on times in your life that have been the best for you. What was your rhythm then? This week experiment with your rhythm. Try out different paces. Think of it as a dance you are doing. When are you moving your best? Use this information to plan how to move forward at the pace that is best for you.
