Quote - Intention

"What you do every day matters more than what you do every once in awhile."

~ Charles Duhigg

This quote is simple yet I find it difficult to put into practice what is the most important to me on a daily basis.  Why?  I think we are creatures of habit and often our habits are not the ones we want to be known for.  Saying and doing are two completely different things and it is hard to find the right balance.  I like to write so maybe the key for me and for you is to write down what really matters in our lives, what do we want to pass on to our children, friends, coworkers, etc.  I guess it would be like writing what sums us up.  We have a very brief time on this earth to impact ourselves and those around us.  Many, including myself, tend to squander time on things that don't matter and when the end of the day comes we have wasted another day when we could have done so much more.  I think I will write things down that I think are important and hang it up somewhere so I can see it everyday.  Hope we all can live simply doing the things we love that will create the most good in us and the world.
