Personal development

Week 6 – in time


I always have the feeling that I’m behind, I have not had time to finish everything that should have been completed. Like the movie poster. For me it takes hours to do things like that, because I need to sit down in quiet and think about it and find the right feeling, and then the right pictures and so on. It´s the same thing with the shapes that should have been up on the walls in the house by now. Realize that I need to clarify for myself what form that will be associated with each target and it automatically implies that I need to redo my SMART goal card and also write a new DMP and adjust the symbols there.

I do all the exercises every day and I notice that something is happening with me. I really want to do this course to 100%. It´s just that feeling that I´m behand that makes me frustrated and sometimes even angry with myself.  While I write this I become aware that this is exactly how I experience it every time I feel pressure or stress. Hmmm …… To be forced to write is actually good for me. Maybe I am a little too concerned to get everything perfect directly? Even writing a blog post takes a lot of time for me.

Og Mandino is now guiding us to open our hearts. “I will greet this day with love in my heart”. I can actually feel how my heart grows and the energy in my heart area is activated when I in silence say “I love you”, to other people. Wonderful feeling!

Love to all of you!

  1. These are not easy assignments; I agree. Stay on track with us. I often feel as you do. Then I go to the Alliance page and PRESTO! There are gobs who feel just the same. If you haven’t already, check it out over there. Throw in some posts, too. You will probably get replys that will be of tremendous help!
    This may help with the poster–run over to your local Michael’s (hobby store) and look for materials that come in those 4 different colors. I got a bumby sparklie blue paper, a yellow square of bolsa wood and painted it yellow, a red plastic screen I cut into a ciracle with scissors, a green piece of felt I cut into a triangle. Now I havfe color, shape, PPN, SMART Goals are coming together nicely. I can TOUCH it, see it! Maybe this will help you…it did me.
    We are not just behind you all the way; we are with you!!

  3. Good to hear that I´m not alone ;-).


  4. Just curious, Maria – were you a yellow on your personality profile? I sometimes tend to feel the same way you described, and though I’ve never thought of myself as a perfectionist, I also take a ton of time to write and frequently feel the need to edit or rewrite….same as wanting the DMP and dream board to be perfect. I do agree that making the commitment to write is good to help you grow and articulate your thoughts and feelings. Seriously, you’re doing great – keep up the great work and have faith that it will continue to make you grow.


    • I am a white, Lori. I have never thought of myself as a perfectionist either, because I have a very careless side too. I do not like to clean and I don´t bother too much if it is a bit messy around me, but when it comes to some things I must have everything perfect. Thank you for your comments. I´m sure you are doing great too.


  5. I too am feeling I am always a few days behind schedule
