So often we are in ‘go’ mode throughout the day, we’re not even sure of where we’re heading. The alarm goes off in the morning and we jump out of bed onto the ‘treadmill of doing’ without thinking. And if we do know our direction, are we glad to be there?

Maybe a well-thought out plan or even well-intended plan based on our inner-compass and desires can keep us on track. Physically, emotionally and spiritually. In addition, having a way to objectively assess your progress along the way is beneficial as well.

The last thing we want for ourselves is to be a hamster on a wheel while we’re running on empty.
