Good morning – I hope you had a great weekend. It was a quiet for us as we had a couple of sick family members – thankfully they are better!
Are you a little overwhelmed with your schedule? A little frustrated? Why are you so busy? When I was working in industry, we used a tremendously powerful analytical tool to get to the root of an issue – and it didn’t cost a thing. So let’s try this in analyzing why you have an overwhelming schedule and hectic life.
First simply ask yourself Why?
Second step – ask Why is that?
Third step – and then ask why is that?
Fourth step – ask why is that?
Fifth step – ask why is that?
By the time you get to the fourth or fifth why you are beginning to get to the root of the issue. So – what did you learn?
Life is a constant struggle for balance.
Balance is a result of one word…schedule.
Typically you determine your own schedule.
Therefore, you schedule your own balance/imbalance.
Plan basic balance into your life by scheduling many of the really important things into your life a year in advance (Family vacations, personal retreats, time with parents, etc.)
At this point in your life…it may be the only way to achieve any semblance of balance!
So – examine your life and take responsibility for your schedule. Determine if your schedule reflects your priorities – if not, change it!
