Sticky Note Magic
It’s the question that transforms your day (and thus your life) when you answer it regularly.

We know how easy it is for our attention to be drawn in ways that don’t serve us …
Often we’re focused on current reality (in which case we just manifest more of the same) or gremlins hijack it to dwell on what we don’t want (thus the beginning of a downward spiral until we course correct).
That’s one reason why it’s important to develop the discipline of harnessing attention toward what we want.
It sounds simple, but anyone who’s been in this game knows it can be tricky to pull off.
That’s one reason I’m such a fan of using a one-question sticky note that prompts me every morning to focus in a way that serves me.
As I wash hands first thing in the morning and see this note on the mirror, it points my attention toward what I want, rather than letting my thoughts run rampant without any guidance.
Pre-sticky note my thought pattern went something like this:
Man, why is it so dark outside? Shouldn’t it be getting light by now? No wonder January depression is a thing. Do I have to shower today? What do I have today? Mm, I gotta prep for that call. I should have gone to the store yesterday. There’s no bread. I gotta make this day work for me. Does Molly have to go out? I better make her go out.
Post-sticky note internal monologue goes more like this:
“What do I want?” Hmm, what do I want? Well, I want to enjoy this day. I want to make the most of it. I want breakfast! I want to show up for my people in a way that inspires us! I want to feel fabulous about myself and what I’m doing! I want to love this body. I want to be a match for good things, letting Universe deliver the goods. I want love on this cat who’s asking for some TLC right now. Is it time for breakfast, kitty? Let’s go do it!
I don’t know if you can feel the difference, but I sure can!
Maybe you’ve already got a habit that helps draw your thoughts into alignment with what you want. (We’d love to hear it!)
For those who aren’t practicing something that makes it easier to think the good thoughts, give this sticky note method a try and let me know how it works.
