P.A. Thought for the Day

things we do in P.A. are in preparation for that crucial moment when, on a nice sunshiny day, we see a nice procrastinating diversion and the idea of doing that diversion instead of what we want or need to do pops into our minds. If
we've trained our minds so that we're well prepared for that crucial
moment, we won't take that first procastinating act. In other words, if we've done
our P.A. homework well, we won't slip when temptation comes. In
preparation for that crucial moment when I'll be tempted, will I keep in
mind the fact that procrastination is my enemy?


No trumpets sound when the important decisions of our life are made. Destiny is made known silently.
  —Agnes DeMille

The day ahead offers us choices of many kinds - some big ones, many that
will affect other persons close to us, a few that will have profound
effects on our destiny. But no choice, no decision we make, will be
wrong. A particular decision may lead us slightly astray. Down a
dead-end path perhaps - but we can always turn back and choose again.

We are seldom aware of the gravity of a particular choice at the time of
making it. Only hindsight reveals the wisdom of an important choice.
Nevertheless, no choice is without importance in the overall picture of
our lives. And at the same time, no choice is all-powerful regarding our
destiny. We are offered chances again and again for making the right
choices, the ones that will most contribute to the bigger plan for our

I need not worry about
today's opportunities for decision-making. I will listen to those around
me. I will seek guidance in the messages coming to me. I will make the
choices I need to, today.

Online Meeting Today

Perfect reminder to everybody that we have an online meeting today at 7:30 GMT and 2:30 New York Time! 

Come and join us!

I'd like to Join for the first time

It will be 4:30 AM for me here in Japan, but I will set my alarm and hopefully I can get up.


I know that I *should* do it, and it's not that I don't *want* to do it, but I can't get myself to *just do it!* Sometimes it's because I don't know *how* to do it, and sometimes I'm afraid of failing.But sometimes I simply can't explain why I don't do something.


Hey leavinghome! Welcome :)

Good luck waking up for it! I have a hard time doing those sorts of things (I HATE mornings), but once you are up I'm sure you'll be ok :) Sometimes it helps for me to go to a different location so I don't fall back asleep and I "wake up" faster.

Good luck with recovery!
