Beach Notes by Guest Writer Suzie Cheel
A Daily Habit
Each day when Des & I walk on the beach we have a habit of touching the rock at one end of the beach.
and the other.
We started this daily habit not long after we started walking on this beach 4 years ago. We noticed the resident patriarch of the morning beach walk tribe, Frank touching the rock. We learnt it was an unwritten rule, so we followed suit.
A guest staying with us last year observing this ritual asked: Ã¢â¬ÅWhat happens if you don’t touch the rock?Ã¢â¬Â
Well nothing happens!
By touching the rock at both ends it is a way of ensuring that we have completed the full distance. without having to think about it.
I recently thought about how I might apply this to other areas of my life to get more completed efficiently. In other words have some kind of simple ritual to help me complete one task before moving to another. I am not sure how that fits with multitasking, but I am working on it.
Ã¢â¬ÅWhat’s your equivalent of touching the rock?
