– Setting Your Plate
When you wake up, what are the first actions you take? If you’re like most people who read this blog, you probably reach for your phone or iPad and check your email, texts, tweets, and other notifications. You might do this before most anything else. It’s probably habit by now.
But consider it: what you’re doing is letting other people’s thoughts and opinions into your head before you’ve had a moment to consider your own. You’re letting the world set your plate for you, and pick your breakfast thoughts. You’re setting yourself up to have to react to whatever you encounter.
