Morning Routine: Create - Days 9 thru 12

The creations continue.

Day 9 - i sat down and came up with some "tenets," or guiding principles.  The original list was over 25 items deep.  i narrowed it down to 10 "10ets." In no particular order:

  1. Drink more water than wine (or juice, coffee, soda, beer, etc)
  2. Actively seek ways to be of assistance
  3. Practice being in the present moment.  "Where am I? Here I am."
  4. Do things today that my future self will be thankful for
  5. Apply the 80/20 rule as often as possible
  6. Consciously direct the flow of money in my life
  7. Take responsibility for my "roles" (family member, dog owner, employee, etc)
  8. Beat the sun (wake before sunrise)
  9. See the good -- Be the good
  10. Leave [it] better than i found it.

Day 10 - Prepped chicken noodle soup so that I'd have an easy, hot meal when i got home from work.  Add chunks of chicken breasts, celery, carrots, chicken broth, salt and pepper, and whatever else you'd like.  Cook on low for at least 8 hours.  Cook noodles separately and add just before serving.

Day 11 - i drank too much the night before and stayed up late.  the result was that i slept in and didn't have time to do anything but prepare to go to work. (boo! ME)

Day 12 - this post! (hey, it counts...)
