Self Help

Good morning friends, Self help is a broad topic and I just realized how much I've been engaging in it. There are some blogs that I read and a couple podcasts I subscribe to that have been active of late. I'm not trying to make changes in my life or anything like that. I view them as entertainment. Yesterday I realized how many of these things I was already doing. The first being time usage. I work 7 days a week. Yes really. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday are easily the busiest. With the Whiskey Rodeo gig schedule and my administrative role those are 10 to 12 hour days. Because of this schedule I break up my day a great deal. As most of you know I'm an avid fisherman. I always make time for the little beasties. I accomplish my tasks in bursts. Moving hard at a task for no more that a couple of hours then either moving on or taking an extended break 30 to 45 minutes. It's effective for me because I don't get overwhelmed or bored. Second I love what I do. I'm doing exactly what I should be doing in this time and place. I work very had, I'm ambitious and driven. As well, I am fascinated by my craft. There is so much to learn. It's the amount of learning that keeps me interested. Lastly, but most importantly. Taking time to space out. Call it meditation, prayer, or just day dreaming, that's up to you. What I can tell you it does,is reset your brain. Yup it's just like the reset button on your phone, your computer, your gaming system. Our brains are working so hard for us everyday it needs time to do nothing. Especially with the work days that we all are putting in. Extended time with out the opportunity to unplug. 10 minutes or less will do wonders. It's been a delight sharing my self realization and ramblings. If you'd like to check out what I've been reading here's a link http://fourhourworkweek.com/blog/ www.whiskeyrodeo.com has a full list of all of Whiskey Rodeo's upcoming shows.
