Be the human, not the hamster

July 10th, 2017 | Posted by jameswatkins in Uncategorized

I’m babysitting hamsters, “Fluffy” and “Snuggly,” while my granddaughters are on vacation. Fluffy will get on her wheel, run as fast as her tiny legs will propel her, then suddenly stop, stand up on her back legs and look around confused, as if to say, “After all that running, why am I still where I started?!” Repeat . . . repeatedly!

Unfortunately, humans sometimes have that look after running hard after a goal.

Make sure your efforts are accomplishing something. Yes, set goals, but at the end of the day (week, month or year), determine if your current efforts are moving you in that direction. If not, stop running. Evaluate your efforts. Determine a different course. Be the human. Not the hamster.
