Now you remember: you're away from home. There's work to be done, and you did ask for this reminder to rise up early and to get started on your goals.
Wake up calls are sometimes disorienting. They can take us by surprise, even when we expect them. How does that make sense? Examine your history of wake up calls and look for patterns. The patterns are likely there.
What is your wake up call? What have you put in place to get you going, to get you oving in a strange place, at an unusual time?
We live in unusual times but hasn't that always been the case? What do we have to prevent us from slipping into a muddled routine accepting everything and leaving our own assumptions untested? What can rattle our cage?
We need wake up calls -- ways to get started in new territory, signs that the jig is up on our old ways. The dark night is nearly over.
What's your latest wake up call?
Are you listening?
