Often times I get so caught up in the day to day tasks I neglect cultivating the big ideas. And let me tell you, I’m full of them. I’m not saying they’re all good, but . . .

This is when I must stay on top of my schedule and carve out time in order to spend important – but not urgent – time with my big ideas, otherwise they get neglected.

It’s not easy to do when we feel like we’re running around putting out fires all day and have no idea of where that extra time will come from. This is the planning of our time from the day before or a week before.

We all have a choice on how we spend our time. Let’s choose to invest in ourselves by taking a big swing for the fence rather than just getting by in a day. We will never know what we’re capable of hitting it over the fence until we do.
