Once again, along comes my coaching mentor Dr. Randin Brons with another Idea Engineer. Thought provoking.
Couple this approach with the question you should ask each day about actions you are contemplating –“How important is it?”- and your days may become a pleasant dance with more balance than you thought possible!
A reminder, if you want to improve your daily balance I offer a free checklist for balance at
Dance through your day
"Mix a little foolishness with your serious plans: it's lovely to be silly at the right moment." -- Horace
Today, we invite you to do the Take-Your-Time Tango. In his book 'Games for the Soul,' Drew Leder challenges us to dance through our days with the graceful, slow elegance of a tango dancer.
Slow down a notch," Leder counsels. "Do whatever you do in a calm and leisurely fashion. ... As much as possible, don't be driven by inner fear, external deadlines, or rushed companions to stumble through a speeded-up dance. Act as if you have all the time in the world. Come to think of it, you do: No one else has any more hours."
So stand (or sit) tall. Raise your chin as you gather your full concentration, dignity and self confidence to glide smoothly and beautifully through the day.
"We look at the dance to impart the sensation of living in an affirmation of life, to energize the spectator into keener awareness of the vigour, the mystery, the humour, the variety, and the wonder of life." -- Martha Graham
I love to “dance through my days” and sometimes it is a tango. One of the joys of my life is working with others in what I guess could be considered a life dance lesson. I’m grateful for the teachers I had! Life is for living and laughing!!
