Early morning. Sitting in my chair. Drinking coffee.
Our 3, 5 and 7-year-old sons are continuing the slow demolition of our house. My wife is reading. I’m searching for the end I need to begin with to be a highly effective person.
“Look at that dog,” my wife says. Frankie, our French Bulldog, is laying in the only patch of sun around. Totally at peace. And then it hits me.
The key to a successful, happy life is to find a patch of sun and lay in it.
In order to achieve this pinnacle of success is to:
- Find a patch of sun
- Lay in it
Do not accept anything less than a fully engulfed, blazing patch of sun. Quality is of the utmost importance. Your life, your success, and your happiness are worth the effort.
Then lay in it.
- plan your future
- reminisce about your past
You must be. Let the warmth penetrate your skin, feel it in your core.
Now, carry the feeling you feel at this very moment throughout the rest of your life
and be that sun for others.
