The Chaff of Sameness

We started talking about separating the wheat from the chaff early in the week. This has become the idea with priority in my brain. Funny thing is it seems to be easier to do when coaching others that when coaching yourself. Maybe it falls in to the same category as, “Someone who is his own attorney has a fool for a client.” At any rate…

I so appreciated the comments. They were great springboards for continued thought. Robyn, Rosa, Brandie, and Karen had great points on saying no, loud clutter, and cleaning it all out.

So, let’s get started on some radical moves. I realize my brain needs to be defragged. I don’t think it is a problem with the multitasking – I think it is the problem with stagnant multitasking.

The first thing designated as chaff is sameness.

Today I am going to attempt to do things in a different way. I am not quite sure what that means just yet. But I know that there are some things that I am doing that are spot on…others are good – but they could be different. Variety is the spice of life – how spicy do you like it? I am kind of a mild girl myself…but I can handle a bit.

There has to be some type of movement, some change. If not, where does the catalyst come from? I had the opportunity to talk a few minutes with a friend of mine. Deborah Crespo helps people live their lives – when she talks, I listen. “Do you ever feel like you are just standing on the cusp of something great?”

Do you?
Then what?


  1. I totally agree about the brain defragging. I do that every time I do a brain dump onto paper. Or create a “tolerations” list and then set about eliminating them so that I can free up the RAM that they take up in the background of my brain.

    I’m a quest to do a number of things differently, by focusing on them each for at least a week.

    I invite you to join me (is that a tag?) Donna

  2. Wow, I am astonished at your courage. My thought? Get really quiet, and listen. Your heart and your life whisper quietly: β€œWhen your heart speaks take good notes.” ( Author Unknown).
    Then, when you know you’ve heard the right thing, take the first step. πŸ™‚

  3. Donna –

    I would love to hear more about that “tolerations” list.

    It is a tag and I accept πŸ™‚ Give me a minute to consider what my “it” will be.

  4. Brandie,

    Courage? Yay! Hadn’t thought of it that way. But I will from now on – sounds a lot better than “desperate.” πŸ˜›

    Love the quote! Thanks for leaving it.
