How many times have we spoken the phrase, "I'll start on Monday"?
The simple idea for this blog post is to suggest that Monday Is Not Sacred. Indeed, it is the first day of a new week, and at times that offers us the surge of hopeful emotion we need to make new plans, and set fresh goals.
However, Monday can become so overloaded with good intentions, that burnout happens before we even get a running start to the day.
I recently heard The Fiddler talking to someone about their next best choice. That phrase sparked a new and refreshing way of thinking for me.
What is your next best choice?
Forget Monday, and think about it today. If healthy eating is your goal, or maybe it is a daily devotional time you desire, whatever it is, ask yourself, "What is my next best choice?" Then, answer yourself.
The next best choice might be to prepare a healthy meal instead of eating out. Or, maybe the next best choice is to set out your Bible and journal before going to bed, for early morning devotions.
Making the next best choice quickly becomes a habit, and has the potential to jump start successful new behaviors. Change can be difficult, but it doesn't have to be, if we take it one step at a time. One next best choice at a time.
Monday does not have super hero powers. Monday cannot offer us extraordinary success. In any situation, we can ask ourself, "What is my next best choice?" and begin to make powerful decisions today.
