I was presenting a short program / discussion with questions last evening. Our small group has a great time with lots of positive exchange. After the activity was over, the big question for me was how to get home. Since another person was walking, three of us decided to walk together.
When I got home, I realized that we walked more than four miles – which felt a bit exhausting, especially since I didn’t walk into the house until past my time to be asleep. This made me wonder if I would have the energy to operate at 100% today. What was astonishing is that, even with less sleep, I feel amazing. Challenging myself with that long walk gave me a sense of accomplishment (maybe a little thing to you, but a big thing for me) and I have we charged throughout my day.
So, when you can, exceed your own expectations – even a little.
