It used to take me an entire day to finish one blog post. Now I write one in under 30 minutes. The longer ones, a couple of hours max.
I used to be late for meetings, now I am always on time.
I used to spend days binge watching my favorite shows, now I don’t.
I used to dread talking to clients, now I love it.
I used to eat fast, and often did it with a screen in front of me. Now I sit and savour my food.
I used to rush in the end to close loops, now I enjoy early sprints.
I used to want others to do and be the way I wanted them to be, now I just let them be.
I used to start a lot of projects and finish almost nothing, now I start less and finish almost everything I start.
I used to say words that I had no intention of fulfilling or living by, now I don’t say what I don’t mean or don’t want to honor.
I chose to change. I acted to be the change I wanted to see. I also started seeing what I do as a privilege, and each word as a powerful tool, that changes me and others in a subtle way.
You can also choose to change for the better. I hope you’ll give it a shot.
