Quotable Camp – Choose Wisely

choose wisely This is a little note that I wrote out on a post-it and stuck on my office wall above my desk (right under a lovely poem that a camper wrote about what camp means to her) to remind me that it’s what we do, day in and day out that shapes what kind of person we are and how successful we are. So I thought I’d share it with you. There are some parts of my job that I don’t love. Shock and awe! I know. (Although, with that said, I’d take the worst parts of my job any day over the best parts of most other jobs…) So when I’m grumpy, or bummed, or sulky because I have to do something I don’t love, I read this little gem (sometimes it takes a couple of read throughs) to remind myself that in order to be successful and have a successful camp, I need to make choices everyday that get me closer to my goals. It’s also SUPER helpful when I’m feeling lazy in my down time and am trying to decide between doing something productive or binge watching Netflix. I’m not gonna lie, sometimes Netflix wins… and that’s ok because down time is healthy (perhaps not when it’s combined with ‘binge’ anything, but that’s a post for another day). But more often than not, reminding myself that every choice I make will impact ‘future me’ in some way really helps put things into perspective. What do you do to keep yourself motivated? And which parts of your job do you ‘not love’? I’d love to hear about it in the comment section below, I’m always looking for new ways to motivate myself (and to commiserate about stuff that’s hard!) Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter, Pinterest, & FB too! You can find links to the right or down below. 🙂
