Moleskine Meditations - Reflections on the Notebook
Monday: a day, a date, a label, an event, a calendar entry, a shift of electrons on an iPhone screen, a new dawn, a fresh perspective, a wish, a want, a hope. A Monday.

Life is indeed a journey. When did you last unfold the map on a very large table and really study the terrain and consider what might be some good options over the coming weeks, months and years?
There are no bad Mondays; merely ones where we temporarily forgot we can just observe our feelings. We don't have to be them.
E-mail is a detached mode of communication. No eye-contact, no physical presence and no real-time feed-back from the person.
That tempting attraction can be its greatest weakness.
Monday: look beyond the label.
What if? is not just for spreadsheets.
A fresh start requires fresh goals;
Fresh goals require fresh thinking;
Fresh thinking requires letting go and looking forward.
Dive in anywhere.
You have to love-especially-the last Monday of any year.
Boxing Day: a day where you avoid anything too clever and start by reflecting on (1) identifying the boxes in your life and (2) checking what's inside them.
Draw a circle, 'the pie'. Now divide the pie according to how you would like your time to be spent.
Sketch a second pie, this one apportioned as to how your time is spent.
Any mis-alignment is worth noting, reflecting upon and if appropriate, correcting. It'll take time but it'll be worth it.
