Feeding What We Want to Grow
In this story, we can all find something with which we can related, and the message from the grandfather in the story is clear.
- If I have been focused hard on my goals and not thinking about what I've accomplished already (To-Do versus Ta-Da List) and it is draining me, I can feed the Ta-Da! Thank you Jessica Johnson.
- If I have been ruminating on the failures of the past, I can feed the thinking forward lesson to take away and move it into future pursuits.
- If I have been striving to become something different or better and I feel stuck, I can reflect about what I've already become to get closer to that person. I may not be at step ten, but I might have already moved from step 0 to five, and that is something!
