The Daily Grind

I heard a story the other day about a boy that has a problem with his eye.  Not that he needed glasses but he was seeing way more than double vision (think decavision if that's possible).  When he was about 5 years old he had corrective surgery that was supposed to heal him.  The surgery helped for a little while but eventually his vision problems came back.  He and his parents have tried many things but the only thing that seems to work is eye exercises.  The now approx. 10 year old has a 30 minute eye focusing/exercise plan that he must do twice a day, everyday. 

This is a great reminder that in order to get our desired results, we must have a daily plan.  In a world of get rich quick schemes, gastric bypass surgeries, 3 minute abs, and speed read the Bible we often forget the importance of the daily grind.  Not that any of these things are wrong, because they have helped many people achieve their desired financial, health, physical, and spiritual results.  However, it is important to remember that it is usually not the big, quick, and magical events that change, heal, improve, challenge, or inspire us.  Rather it is our daily approach, attitude, focus, and exercises that shape us into the people we desire to be. 

What daily exercises do you need to start today to become a better ______________?
