Yes, I am late with Day 8.
Sure, it fits with my tendencies for procrastination, but it also fits with my desire to be more intentional about what we do as a family. Fact is, yesterday was an early morning… up and at em to go deep-sea fishing.
We have lived in Nova Scotia, dubbed “Canada’s Ocean Playground” for nine years now. For nine years, we’ve talked about going deep-sea fishing with my dad. Well, this was the year.
Groupon had a crazy deal on a 4-pass (only 4 would be interested in going) so I scooped it up back in May. I had to get in this week, or I’d miss the boat, literally and figuratively. So I booked it.
Setting a hard deadline can be an extremely helpful tool in accomplishing goals. Booking an activity (especially if you pre-pay for it) increases the likelihood of actually doing it.
It was a wonderful day, filled with great memories for all of us.
