Post-it Question by Jenny Blake
That which each can do best, none but his Maker can teach him. Where is the master who could have taught Shakespeare? Where is the master who could have instructed Franklin, or Washington, or Bacon, or Newton? . . . Shakespeare will never be made by the study of Shakespeare. Do that which is assigned you, and you cannot hope too much or dare too much. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Identify one of your biggest challenges at the moment (ie I don’t feel passionate about my work) and turn it into a question (ie How can I do work I’m passionate about?) Write it on a post-it and put it up on your bathroom mirror or the back of your front door. After 48-hours, journal what answers came up for you and be sure to evaluate them.
Bonus: tweet or blog a photo of your post-it.

Worry. I worry about everything and everyone. That’s one of the challenges I face right now – well always. The fact that I can’t make things better for those who are hurting, stressing, frustrated, etc… is unbearable to me. It weighs on me and I realize it isn’t that they put this on me. I just worry and feel the pain of those around me – intensely.
Lately, I’ve felt like I’m circling a black hole. I’m fighting it. I’m clutching at anything I can grab hold of to keep from falling in. I’ve been there before and I don’t want to go back. I put on a happy face but inside, this worry I carry is wearing me down. It’s no one’s fault. I just wish I could fix things for those who need it.
How can I put an end to this worry I feel? I guess the message I would tell myself is to stop worrying and to “let it go”. I always tell people to worry not about that which they cannot control. I need to follow my own advice. I need to just give it to God and let be what will be.
