So I have been doing some serious introspection lately. And Recently, I have had to relearn some of the lessons I’ve known for a while.
It’s not enough to be busy. It’s more important to be PRODUCTIVE.
It’s not enough to be getting things done. It’s more important to get the RIGHT THINGS done.
I noticed I had somehow gotten myself encumbered with lots of activities. Mostly activities that had to do with other people’s business and work to the detriment of mine.
I had gotten so busy doing different things for different people that I barely had time to pursue my goals. This discovery was a personal ‘Call to Action’ for me…
IT’S TIMES TO UNCLUTTER YOUR LIFE.
There is a biblical fable of a man that was given a task by his commanding officer. His task was to keep watch over a prisoner of war. But somehow he got distracted with other activities and the prisoner escaped. His report to the king included words like…
“while your servant was busy here and there, he was gone.” And the king’s judgement to him was not a pleasant one.
Sometimes, you have to learn to deliberately say NO to many people and many things in order to be able to say YES to your dreams.
Many times, the reason we find it hard to stay true to our resolutions and plans for a better life is that we have too many (unnecessary) things taking our emotional energy.
If you find yourself in this situation, it’s time to unclutter.
It’s time to disengage from certain (less important) tasks and responsibilities.
This does not mean you should become selfish and only care about yourself. But to remind you that your your assignment in life (your purpose) should take precedence.
It’s time to #FOCUS on your assignment and pursue your DREAMS.
