    Do you start each day with a “do-you-in” list? Oh, you don’t call it that. You call it a “to-do” list, but you often end up with a monster that may “do you in.”

    Sometimes it feels as if our list ranges from “feed the dog” to “write a chapter in the novel” to “put up storm windows” to “prepare dinner for twelve.” That’s what I mean by a “do-you-in” list.

Today I will tap my special gifts.
    Try creating a sense of rhythm to your week. Some days may feature more mental activity, other days more physical. Every day can have its own showpiece of achievement along with the smaller, more routine accomplishments.

    Try making this a new priority:

Today I will tap my special gifts. I will focus intently on one task and do it well. The rest of my day may be taken up in small activities. But for a part of today I will be at my best. I resolve not to dissipate my gifts and dull them in endless routine.

    As Emerson said, “We are all entitled to be valued by our best moments.” Let your best moments break through the clouds of routine and shine every day.
