Look to Creation! Alertness vs Carelessness Overview Lesson
So often, we go through the day on autopilot, doing those things we habitually do everyday and reacting to those things that are variable events. Picture a small boat being gently tossed around in the waves. Alertness requires us to live deliberately, to be looking for that next wave so that we can hit it head on, to put up the sail and harness the wind for our advantage. How often do we fail to recognize signs of the wind shifting and are unable to react appropriately, especially if it’s because we put off doing something important? You can practice Alertness, by choosing something that you procrastinate doing and hit it head on. ~~ Character Council of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, August 2012 Alertness -- Being aware of what is taking place around me so I can have the right responses.
