Getting a Bee Out of Your Bonnet!
A bee in your bonnet.
Meaning…………Preoccupied or obsessed with an idea.
Beekeepers have always worn protective headgear when working with bees and it is possible, although entirely speculative, that the bonnet refers to beekeeping.
Doing a little research, I found the first print citation of “bee in his bonnet” in the Reverend Philip Doddridge’s Letters, 1790:
“I suppose you have heard of Mr. Coward’s pranks. He has, as the Scotch call it, a Bee in his Bonnet.”
None the less, sometimes I get a bee in my bonnet.
Maybe you do to?
Right now, I’m currently obsessed or preoccupied with these thoughts;
“If it’s worth doing, it’s worth measuring.”
“If it’s worth doing, it’s worth maximizing.”
“Things that get measured get improved or removed!”
If you take a good honest look at how you invest your time every day, you’ll get more done in less time with more satisfying RESULTS and experience more harmony.
Join with me and break what you’re doing down to three categories……….say in 1 hour segments:
P = productive / I = indirectly productive / and U = unproductive
Do this for 2 weeks and your eyes will open! (email me for an action sheet to help you)
If you will do it, I promise you’ll take a new look at your priorities!
Let me know how it goes…………
Smiles, have a GREAT week and Keep on Seeking……………..Mark
