Every time someone suggests that I "optimize" my morning routine, I end up rolling my eyes so far back into my head that I fall down.
"Oh, it's so stinkin' easy! Before you sit down at your computer to start your day, all you need to do is wake up at dawn, perform a sun salutation in a yellow sequined ball gown, run 12 miles backward, write a memoir, eat goat milk yogurt, and make 378 origami paper cranes. Seriously, it'll change your life."
Yeah, hard pass. I will never do any of those things.
I prefer my morning routine to be headlined by bleary-eyed coffee-making, scrolling through missed Slacks and emails on my phone while leaning against the kitchen counter, nudgingPumpkinoff my newspaper, and... sigh... filling out my gratitude journal.
OK, fine, you caught me.
I do one stereotypical, awful morning routine thing — I ask myself,"What are you grateful for today?" So, sue me.
However, thanks to IMPACT Digital Sales and Marketing CoachChris Marr, I think about this question much differently than I used to. Not too long ago, hesuggestedrephrasing that question to,"What am I taking for granted right now?"
His subtle repositioning completely changed my outlook from that moment forward — but for some reason I found myself thinking a lot about his question today, while I was sitting on the mostly-deserted beach atLighthouse Point.
For example, so many of us (myself included) complain aboutZoom fatigueand how allsales calls have to be done on videoinstead of in person. But, if I'm being truthful, I shouldn't be complaining about this stuff at all —videois what's kept me sane for the better part of the last three months, as my primary source of human interaction.
As I sat there feeling the sand in between my toes this afternoon, I was reminded of the fact that yes, I resent much of this "new normal" and how a lot of things are much harder than they used to be. In teeny tinyandmassively life-altering ways.
Still, it's always good to pause, take a moment, and ask yourself what you're taking for granted. There is still so much to be thankful for.
