There is no avoiding the fact that we live in and are responsive to constantly repeating cycles, not just the obvious 24-hour cycle we live on a daily basis, but its existence within a weekly, monthly, yearly cycle and so on. Every 24-hours, our bodies undergo a natural rejuvenation cycle, with most of the night-time marking a part of that cycle in which the body’s ability to rejuvenate us is key to the way we will feel the next day.
Within each 24-hour period we have times when we are naturally inclined to be active and productive. When we honour these times and go about doing what’s needed, our bodies are responsive and appreciative of this activity. In that sense we will get to the end of our ‘work day’ and feel good about the day, satisfied and pleased with what we achieved.
If we pay careful attention however there is a distinction between achieving a lot in a day, which can be done by driving ourselves without break or care for it’s impact, and staying active and responsive to what presents itself TO BE DONE that day, and doing it.
