3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
As well as being properly focused and grounded on an ongoing basis, the apportioning and management of time is an issue I need to keep control of. The freedom I am blessed to enjoy carries with it the obligation to manage myself in the absence of an overseer.
No matter how benevolent your life, to get the most fulfilment from it, regardless of circumstances, it is necessary to give it a flexible structure. Structuring a day therefore becomes an important and necessary part of the day itself, because only with a structure do you get stuff done and make the difference that makes life fulfilling.
4. TODAY'S QUESTION FOR YOU
Do you have a plan for getting stuff done and making a difference?

Mock The Week: Sandi Toksvig & Hugh Dennis on The Queen
Due to anti-German sentiment during WWI, an alternative name for a

on immigrant ships between Hamburg, Germany, and America in the
1800s) was “salisbury steak.” It was named after Dr. Salisbury
who prescribed ground beef for patients suffering from anemia,
asthma, and other illnesses.

Compassion without courage is not genuine. You may have a compassionate
thought or impulse, but if you don’t do or say anything, it’s not compassion.
