Moleskine Meditations - Reflections on the Notebook
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.
There are no bad Mondays; just ones where we forget the universe loves to tease and test.
Match its jest with bounce.
You have plans and then you get distracted.
Don't get distracted.
The universe is an orderly place; it's the inhabitants who are messy. The universe wants things to go well (even on a Monday). But we have to give it some clues. Have a plan. Work the plan. Get feedback. Adjust the plan. Try again. Succeed.
