Time to do, do what you teach

It has been a great week, full of great surprises, friends and opportunities. However, there has been some stresses, forgotten bills, unforeseen expenditures, getting distracted by events that may or may not happen — you know, life!

Waking this morning I felt a sense of urgency, not because my love of my life was gently waking me saying "I am waiting for you, let me start your day off right." Seriously, my coffee really says those things to me. Waking this morning, I just felt like I was loosing my path, loosing the ability to be more in control,  it made me feel I was starting to add more to my plate than I should; but wait a second, I am Aaron Cross, i've been in worse spots before I can handle this — Go get it buddy!

Yeah, well two memories popped into my head, one was a statement my dear friend Ezra said to me the other day. Ezra and I were working on a last minute project and I said I need to go to two more meetings, then to practice and finally home to do paperwork. Ezra turned to me and said "Aaron, your in a wheelchair, act like it! " I was shocked, then he clarified, he said "you do too much stuff in a day, there is no room for mistakes in your life. You need to practice what you teach."

Last night one of my private clients cancelled our meeting today which made me frustrated and then I though okay I can call three clients and get them into my schedule. Thank goodness I did not do that! Today, I am "Taking five" and following "Slow is smooth, smooth is fast." "Life moves pretty fast, if you don't stop to take a look around once in a while you might miss it." —Ferris Bueller.

I posted a picture onto my Face Book; it says "At any given moment you have the power to say this is is not how the story is going to go."

"Take five" "Slow is smooth, smooth is fast" and now its' "Time to do, do what you teach"

  1. I'm gonna so use that "Slow is smooth, smooth is fast." I am guilty like you of NOT practicing what I preach. My mind is 25, my body is...well, NOT. Some days I just can't do it all by myself. DUH!!! at my age I'm not supposed to. Thanks for the reminder, old friend. Peace, Glen
