Do you make time for everyone else’s needs, but not for your own?
Are you driven to take care of your clients or customers, but your own projects go unattended?
Why is that?
Number one on the list is the need to earn a living. Many creative types have moved overseas, to a country where the cost of living is much lower. Some choose to live in RV’s or share rentals with others.
After all, net profit = revenue – expenses. That leaves two ways to have more money in the bank: More coming in or less going out.
For those of us who support a family, though, moving abroad or living in a van aren’t attractive alternatives. We have to work hard and scramble for every dime.
What if …
Do you remember the story of Noah?
God told him to build an ark. Noah listened and ended up saving humankind from extinction.
What if God told you to do something? Would you think it might be important? Would you place it first or last on your daily list of priorities?
Okay, I’m getting out there to make a point.
But really … in a way … aren’t we all born with a calling? Isn’t that assignment a big part of your Dream — of the work you would do if you only had time?
Here’s how to get to the mountain (says the old proverb) … just keep walking in that direction.
Along the same line is the Japanese management theory known as “Kaizen” (improvement). The idea is that we can accomplish big changes by working on little improvements daily.
Could we do that? Could we make a small adjustment towards our Dreams today? And another tomorrow. Then another?
Today, I am going to set aside one hour to work on Roadturn Principles. Just one hour. And, I’m going to put that in front of everything else. If that means I need to work an hour longer today, so be it.
But I will have “listened to God.” I will have worked on something I know needs attention — even though I am not getting paid to do it.
How about you? Is there something similar in your life? Is there something you can do TODAY to “walk in that direction”?

No obligation. No charge. It’s sent as a pdf, so there are no shipping fees.
