3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
It is one of those blissful days where I have nothing pressing - this doesn't mean the same of course as having nothing to do! What it does mean is an ideal opportunity to focus on goals and objectives. In the daily busy-ness, it is easy for the direction and life-purpose to get lost. On days such as these, I get the chance to sit down and "flesh out" what my objective looks like, and consequently what I do is more likely to get me there.
