The Snooze Button

I read this on Jason Mraz's blog today (an earlier post) and I'm pretty sure this was directly for me....maybe a few other people...but mostly me. I've been struggling with this very same choice for the past two weeks--the "I'm barely coherent what is that buzzing I just want to sleep to push or not to push the button" choice which ultimately leaves me disappointed at myself and my day and the things that could be accomplished. And....I point the big finger of blame at myself. And vow to change for the better.

"Yesterday I Twitted – twittered – tweeted (which reminds me – I wish this powerful means of connection had been given a cooler name… like Stall Street Journal or something more suitable and snooze-able) So yesterday in the Stall Street Journal I wrote a few of my perspectives on the Snooze Button – that device which offers a 2% chance of returning to your dreams and a 98% chance of non-fulfillment on your real ones. This morning as I hit the snooze alarm again, I got present to what it really is: a Procrastination Button.

If you’re like me and you set the alarm an hour early because you know you’re going to hit the snooze and sleep longer – I invite you to explore where else in your life that mentality shows up for you. Do you put off doing projects until the last minute? Do you often oversleep your project deadlines? Are your dreams altered by your scattered attention to more than one reality? Do you blame the alarm clock for not performing its function successfully? Who else do you blame?

Wake up and smell your finger.

It’s Monday - The perfect day to make bold new declarations - The best week ever to check in on your New Year’s Resolutions and Commitments. What else could you take on this week to make your life and the life of others Great?"
