What Are You Saying Yes To?
Are you ready to evaluate your priorities?
The activity trap of doing too much starts to close in on us little by little. The feeling of being important quickly turns to feeling like the weight of the world sitting on our shoulders.
We overextend ourselves by doing good things, but for the wrong reasons.
We attend a concert of a band we don’t even like
We say yes to stuff when we really wanted to say no
We give and give to our family, our church, and our work
We say yes to another birthday party on Saturday afternoon, which means menu planning and cleaning out the garage gets bumped yet again
Instead of stopping, we go faster and faster. We try to multi-task more and use our time more efficiently. We invest in planners and listen to productivity podcasts.
I am calling a time out. Instead of spending our days responding to life’s details and feeling good about completing our list; we need to evaluate which list we are working on and why. The urgent is rarely important and the important is rarely urgent.
Are you ready to take back your yes and create space in your week for you?
Let’s pull the emergency brake on this crazy busy freight train!
