What happens to drivers who are in too much of a hurry to stop and refuel their vehicles? How about cyclers who are bent on getting to the finish line first so they refuse to slow down to collect vital supplies along the way? Ever imagined what the outcome would be if someone wanted to get to point B, a place they’ve never been before, but they’re unwilling to slow down to consult a map?
On this journey of life, it’s easy to run full speed ahead to ensure you accomplish all you’ve determined to accomplish. Sometimes you find yourself going so fast that you don’t even notice important things happening around you. You find yourself managing issues that you could have easily resolved, and soon enough you begin to trip on pieces of your life that have fallen apart in your rush. But are you going to go on like this?
It is unwise to live life without introducing breaks, rests, time outs, and so on. Even nature has its sequence to enable rest and evaluation.
Take time out every now and then and have a good look at your life. How’s it going? What aspects are you pleased with? What areas need improvement? What adjustments should you make? What strategies do you need to change completely? These reviews will help you better position yourself to maximize your resources.
Take at least one hour every month to reflect on your life. You’ll be amazed at the difference this simple activity will make.
