OK, I did it again and my wife says my excuse of not thinking and then apologizing is getting old.
I scheduled something on top of something routine I’m supposed to do with her, and it was going to be hard to reschedule it.
I said I’d try to be more careful. She wasn’t impressed.
Suddenly the light bulb went on!!! We’re scheduled to take groceries to the church on the 2nd and 4th Friday every month and I’d just scheduled taking our priest fishing on the 4th Friday. I hadn’t noticed the conflict. But!! – I suddenly realized the strategy – put it in my appointment book for each of those dates! All the way thru December. No more problem.
The thing is, I used to do that and somehow I’d stopped.
The principle: once we find something that works, the next thing we do is stop doing it.
Quotes O the Day:
“If I can’t see it, it doesn’t exist.”

Next apology O the Day:
Last post I put a link to a great post from James Clear and later saw that it didn’t work and I couldn’t find it to replace it and now I can’t figure out how to correct something once it’s posted anymore. Working on that. I tested these two links and think they work ( I hope.)
