It’s so amazing how easy it is to get distracted. This morning in my hotel room, as I woke I laid out a schedule of the things I needed to do before heading over to the office. It was the perfect schedule, and one that included study and this daily post.
Also, when I travel sometimes I over estimate the personal work I can accomplish in my hotel room at night. This trip was no exception, however, I found my nights dominated by my work more then my personal work. So this morning I had several things still to get down before I headed out.
So much that as I was walking out the room door I realized I had not taking any time to study and to write this post. I had become so caught up in the simple tasks that I was trying to accomplish that I bypassed one of hte most important for getting my day going. Wow! How easy it is to be caught up in things and completely miss and forget the important stuff. So this morning is quite a lesson to me on how important staying close to study really is and how easy it is to get out of practice and out of pattern. That’s why this blog is named what it is. Everyday we must buffet our bodies, (including our minds), and make our bodies and our minds our slaves, versus the other way around.
So, I hope that my about face in the doorway, and this post keep you in a pattern of study today, and that it’s a subtle reminder of the importance of staying close to him.
