Create New Realities

Being on time has always been a struggle for me…

I have left it late this week, but this is the power of streaks. I can’t let this streak die, not today.

I had started writing yesterday in fact, but today got away from me. The work day and life happened and I didn’t have the systems in place to get my done properly.

Anyway, this is what I was writing about for this week.

Create New Realities

Create new realities, it is possible. Life is about creating new realities for ourselves and of ourselves. We are constantly evolving, even if we don’t realize it — aging itself is a form of evolution.

What I mean is that, with effort, we can create new lifestyles and versions of ourselves.

For me, my new reality is being on time to work. For the past three weeks now I have been able to arrive to work on time which, in my case, is a great achievement.

It has been a long time coming, years in fact. I have always struggled to be consistent when it comes to getting to work on time.

One of the many reasons has been the fact that I want the house to be clean before I leave for work and I always struggled to have my place clean and still be able to leave on time for work.

But, for the past few weeks, it is being done and even with time to spare on some days. The reason for this change is that I committed to getting to work on time, and I have made a serious decision to keep to the schedule.

I made it a priority to arrive to work on time because I believe it will help me be more productive and get more things done. There is also a sense of pride when you are on time, so I really made this a priority after years of talking about it and saying I would do it.

So, that’s it right there. That is a new reality for me, a reality that I didn’t have just a month ago: I am a person who arrives to work on time.

So if I can do it with getting to work on time, then I can do it in other parts of my life if I really commit to whatever it is that I want to do or want to achieve.

This is an example. I have committed myself to try and do it, and so far I am doing OK, which is what counts.

So whatever it is, we can do it, if we commit to it and we are serious about it. It is not easy, but we can do pretty much anything we want to do if it is really important to us.
