I’m Meghashyam. It's been a long time since I sent this newsletter out. I even skipped sending it last month.
But now, I am back, finally. :)
As you know, my online home is
Every month – in this newsletter, I try to tell you one interesting thing that changed me for the better in the last few days. Then I ask you to do one small thing TODAY. One small little thing that will improve your life.
So What Interesting Thing Happened in the Last Few Days?
Are you a big fan of discipline?
I amn't. :) In fact I took "not being disciplined" a step further in February, 2010. I came late for work on all except one or two occassions in that month.
My work-timings at that time were 9 AM to 6 PM. Sometimes I dropped by at 9:30. At other times it was 10:00. It had to be a terribly auspicious day for me to reach work by 9:15 AM. I just didn't care.
This resulted in a lot of tiffs with my boss. He is the kind of person who really values punctuality. He was angry first. Then he got frustrated. Then he just accepted it. But we never really got along well. Because I got late.
Then one day (I think it was March 3, 2010), I thought, "Why do I always get late?"
I didn't seem to find an answer. So I thought a bit more. And then it struck me, "..because I leave home late."
That was true. When my work timings were 9 AM to 6 PM, I'd leave home at 8:10 AM or 8:15 AM. And I would get late.
"So could I leave home early?"
My work timings changed from March 2, 2010. Now I had to work from 10 AM to 6 PM.
So I made a decision. I would leave for work at 8:30 AM. And I would start getting ready at 8 AM. And that was that.
From that day onwards, I made it a point to leave my house by 8:30 no matter what. If I got up late, I didn't take a bath. I left at 8:30.
There were times when I left at 8:45. There were times when I even left at 8:50 AM.
But the catch was: I tried my best to leave at 8:30 AM.Earlier, I did not have any time in mind. I just left when I could. Now, I had that "8:30" goal in mind. I tried my best to leave at 8:30.
Soon, things changed. Instead of being late 90 percent of the time, I got late less than 20 percent of the time in the next month. And even when I did get late, it was by a minute or two. Or maybe five. Only twice in the next month did I get really late - by half an hour or more.
Things had changed. My relationship with my boss improved dramatically. I felt good when I reached work - I had felt hurried and nervous earlier. I gained more confidence in myself.
I had just changed one small thing: I had started leaving home earlier. And that made me happier.
What is the One Interesting Thing You Can Do Today?
Is there one small thing you can do today to overcome a big problem in your life? Do that small thing today.
For example, are you always in debt? Always short of money? What is one small thing you could do to stop that? Stop borrowing. So if you resolved that for the next one month, you would not borrow from anyone, you would definitely be on the path to getting out of debt.
Or, do you wake up very late everyday and want to wake up early? One small thing you could do to actually wake up early is sleep early.
Find anything you want to change - and do one small thing in that direction. I am sure you'll feel happier. I definitely did when I started leaving home on time. :)
Yes, yes I am on twitter.
I keep posting my thoughts in the moment here. They could be as simple as musings about what I cooked today. Or they could be ramblings about life, silence and the meaning of existence.
You could try following, anyway. :)
The $500 Law of Attraction Challenge
Have you heard of the $500 Challenge? if not,
this might help.
Basically, my goal is to manifest $500 in 21 days using the law of attraction. Up till now, I have manifested $ 353.70! This thing REALLY works!
And how do I use the law of attraction? I receive an email from this website everyday - and do what it tells me to do.
I know, it sounds interesting and confusing at the same time, which is why you should proceed here right away. :)
So that's that. Until next time please keep rocking.
