How many times have you gone into the kitchen to make a cup of tea or coffee, filled the kettle put it on the work top, switched it on and then gone about your business, only to come back some 5 minutes later to find that the water is stone cold?
Why? - Because you forgot to plug it in!
In addition, it is likely that you can also recount similar experiences with vacuum cleaners, electric blankets and other household appliances.
We expect them to work but don’t perform the simplest of things to enable that to happen.
So whilst I thought about this as a topic for the blog I was wondering exactly how I could approach it. Suddenly it hit me that the only thing to do is to “plug in!”
I had to get the power flowing through me and then things would start to happen.
So I sat down and began writing and as I wrote ideas bubbled to the surface and pretty soon I was in full flow.
One thing I thought about was how many times people (myself included) enrol onto training courses and yet when the coursework arrives the books or files just sit there, for the most part unopened.
We forgot the simple act of plugging in!
And then if we take this a stage further – we may actually take the course, pass it and then bemoan the fact that we have a qualification and we are not using it!
All because we forgot to plug in!
Personally, I have trained as a Crystal Therapist and the other night I was talking with my wife Alison and saying that I had never done any Crystal Therapies since I qualified.
Her response (shown below) was partly responsible for the creation of this blog post:-
Alison’s response was:-
“Well, have you ever advertised and let people know that you are available?”
You see I too had forgotten to plug in!
Does that ring any bells with you?
But it does not simply have to apply just to therapy work – it could be educational improvement, personal training, fitness improvement, learning to drive – in fact anything that involves us wanting something and not taking the action to get started. That is to say we forget to plug in!
I hope that this short piece has given you something to think about and when you do so, you will reach the same realisation as I have.
If there are things that you have to do in your life to increase or improve its quality you will have to take whatever steps are necessary to make sure that you move forwards.
The way to do that is simply - remembering to plug yourself in!
