Changing a Little Each Day


Want to write a book? It's the dream of many, but some are dismayed by the amount of time it may take to write that many words, never mind figuring out how exactly to put those words together intelligently and in ways that a reader might want to read them. But if you decide to write only 500 words every day, you will have written 70,000 words in 140 days, and that is a typical length for a non-fiction book. That's 20 weeks, or 5 months. Changing something (writing 500 words) a little every day, can change your life. But you may need to examine the perimeters of your comfort zone.

When someone wants to lose weight, it takes doing something a bit differently every day. That something might be eating a little less, or making better food choices, or exercising (a bit) every day, or a combination thereof. The crucial point however, is that something (albeit small) is changed every day.Changing something (taking a 20-minute walk) a little every day, can change your life. But you may need to examine the perimeters of your comfort zone.

Want to learn a new language? Going to classes is a great idea, but probably you do have time to go to class once a week, but you don't have time for an immersion course over a period of several months, so to really change your life in this regard, you can use your digital devices to bring the language to you during those 'dead' moments every day, perhaps when you drive your car to work, when you shave, or put on your make-up, or when you're in the kitchen cooking. This could be in the form of news in that language (search the internet until you find a web-friendly TV channel that offers news and tune to that channel on a daily basis for 10 minutes. You'll be amazed how quickly your ears attune to the nuances of the language). Another thing you can do is watch trailers of movies you've already seen in your language of choice. Since you already know what the movie is about, you'll understand. Changing something (listening 10 minutes to a news program in your chosen language) a little every day, can change your life. But you may need to examine the perimeters of your comfort zone.

What about someone who want to live a richer, more meaningful life? Perhaps you imagine a life filled with greater spiritual significance (for you), that leads you to connect more closely with yourself. How many hours do you spend watching TV every day? How much time do you spend listening to - often - inane radio shows filled with even more inane commercials, every day? Or how much time do you spend reading sports magazines or romance novels? Change any one of those - or even just a fraction of any one of those - and you will be giving your mind, heart, and soul another kind of nourishment and nurturing that will indeed lead you to a richer, more meaningful life. Changing something a little every day, can change your life. But you may need to examine the perimeters of your comfort zone. It was Mike Murdock who wrote: You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. 

And remember the Chinese Proverb that says the same although in very different words: The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now.


For more about being aware of your thoughts, habits, and exactly what you do every day, and how that will enhance your life and promote a different future, as well as bringing you joy, greater inner peace and freedom, have a look at my book Rewiring the Soul: Finding the Possible Self (paperback or Kindle).

My new book The Tao of Spiritual Partnership is now also available in print and Kindle formats.

From the Description on Amazon: More exciting than any other kind of relationship you have ever known, spiritual partnership is a path, a Tao, available to you so that you may transform your life. Spiritual partnership becomes background music to daily life allowing you to enhance the process of your growth and evolution.

This ground-breaking book addresses:

• relationship patterns that hold you back from a truly fulfilled life
• the strong connection between sexuality and spiritual partnership
• communication leading to true connection & lasting transformation of your relationship

It is precisely at the problematic crossroads so often encountered in relationships that we are offered the opportunity to create a new foundation based on mutual complementarity rather than need; a free relationship between two people who want to be together, rather than two people who need to be together. Needing another, we are told, is the measure of love, but for a fully conscious individual nothing could be further from the truth. And therein lies part of the secret and healing power of spiritual partnerships. 


Praise for The Tao of Spiritual Partnership 

“All humans seek the illusive touch of another's Soul, which opens us to the sense of belonging to something bigger than the self. Dr. Kortsch has given us the true "tao" of relationship in this brilliant exploration of emotional tapestry. We will be grateful for this illumination of spiritual partnership for generations to come." 
Chris Griscom: Spiritual Leader, Author 

“Eloquently and comprehensive, showing how your primary love relationship may be a sacred vessel that transports you and your partner to a place of mutual healing and expansion.” 
Robert Schwartz: Author of Your Soul’s Gift: The Healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born 

"The Tao of Spiritual Partnership is a unique blend of wit and wisdom; Dr. Kortsch encourages us to take responsibility for our relationships, while recognizing and seizing the opportunities for our own personal spiritual growth." 
William Buhlman, Author of Adventures Beyond the Body 



Note: If you are wondering why this blog is now only appearing on alternate days (excluding Sat/Sun), it is because I also post on my other blog on the others days. That other blog is The Tao of Spiritual Partnership, so named for my new book. Click here to visit the blog and/or to sign up for the feed.
