To keep moving forward effectively then I must keep finding the graceful balances between these

being proactive and being responsive

pushing the round boulder up the hill and riding the raft down the river

knowing what the next graceful step is and sorting through the too-many alternatives

soaring along on the currents of wind like a hawk and chopping down trees like a beaver

like a man in an overcoat leaning into the wind and a girl chasing butterflies in a meadow

playing on the seesaw of life and feeling overwhelmed by the junky clutter of my life

going with the flow in the Creativity Zone and doing boring housework yet again

longing to spend much more time with a few close friends and enduring acquaintances

chattering about shallow trivia to pass the time and seeking enriching dialogues   

learning yet more about how to improve my life and just living with the familiar mess

searching for greater spiritual growth and putting out the fires of worldly problems

inviting the muse to come out to create more and coping with the trivial details of life

letting my heart dance with my mind as I write and caring for my body so I can dance again

sticking with those teachers I like most and seeking some more teachers too

carry on like a dutiful soldier and internally caving into the impossible odds of winning big

feeling content with all the techie tools I have and wanting to add some more to the collection

being goal oriented and adapting to the shifts as prompted by my intuition

perceiving missed deadlines as a bad thing and learning to make suitable future adjustments

finish the many books/ebooks I started and get yet another one that promises much

marking up books as I read them and rarely going back to review those books or markings

having specific tasks to do each day/week and going with reality as it unfolds each moment

swimming upstream against the distractions and stopping to smell the roses

plugging away like a faithful worker bee and strategizing like a wise CEO

putting in the time needed to tick off the needed tasks and stopping to rest along the way

getting things done to the best of my abilities and making taking a vacation a high priority   

operating from my familiar skill set and learning yet another skill

knowing I could die any day in an auto wreck and pacing myself to live to a ripe old age

staying comfy in my Comfort Zones and again moving tentatively into new territory

digging the ditch that is right in front of me and looking at the landscape from high above

slowly studying new material while pondering each bit and skimming to get a few ideas

using patience with perseverance to plod along  and knowing when to let go in order to pivot

addressing short-term goals and developing resources for long-term goals

applying current systems and creating new systems

fishing for neat new videos on Youtube and sticking to structured studies I have begun

relaxing and enjoying my life and keep moving forward with my purpose

keeping up with the many reports of current events and working on my personal development

choosing to dig into just one well very deeply and going to many possible wells that appeal

it is not either-or but both-and while in harmony and suited to the needs of the moment
