Life is So Daily

Dec 6th 2010 at 4:35 PM

Here’s an OLD nursery rhyme -

Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go,
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for his living,
And the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.

I don’t know for sure if a person’s characteristics are determined by the day of the week on which they were born.  I sometimes wonder, since I’m a Tuesday’s child, if the “full of grace” part was a joke.  I believe that God has shown me personal grace, but when it comes to body movement, I may have missed the boat.  I think I even have some perma-bruises due to this.

Meanwhile, back on the subject:

I have friends who seem to think that “ritual” is a bad thing.  You know, things that are said or done on a regularly programmed cycle or according to a pattern.  Things that are usually beneficial to you but you really don’t think a lot about.  Some of the things which I, personally, do that fit this pattern include taking my vitamin C tablet first thing in the morning; washing my face and brushing my teeth in the same particular fashion or order morning and night; preparing my first cup of tea for the day.  You get the idea.  These are little habits that were formed a long time ago and compose some of my daily ritual.  So ritual habits can be good.

There are little things that need to be done daily to be successful in whatever business venture one pursues.  At my “day job” we count and record the previous day’s sales, prepare a deposit, go to the bank and then the post office.  These are little necessary tasks that help us to keep track of and gather income.

At home, I check my daily calendar, sort and read emails, collect my click points on PeopleString, check my ad responses, monitor business progress in opportunities such as GVO, Kooday and GanoExcel, take a little training and check in with my GVO Intrepidity teammates.  All of these little things done regularly on a daily basis add up to the big thing of success doing business online.

I was reminded today of an old adage which is reported to say: “Take care of the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselves”.  Can we learn to translate this into daily good habits which add up to a lifetime of success?  My goal is to make sure that the details are taken care of properly so that the big picture turns out right.

The newest habit I am working on is posting here on a regular basis.  I have thinking, working, writing time on Tuesdays.  So check back each week to see what this Tuesday’s child is up to.

See you then -
