5 Steps to Take Control of Your Life

How many people trudge through life doing the same thing day in and day out? Does this sound familiar?

  • Alarm clock goes off. Morning routine, dressed, breakfast and out the door to the morning drive. Arrive at the office, 2 hours of the day gone.
  • Emails, responses, voice mails, call backs, need coffee, greet coworkers, another hour down.
  • Start most important project of the day, interruption, back to project, bathroom break, more coffee, back to project, interruption, project, interruption, oops, missed lunch, project, “sure, I have a minute to talk”, project, FIRE DRILL, UGH!
  • Time to drive home, fix dinner, run kids to sports practice, back home, homework, baths, bedtime, collapse in a chair for a few precious minutes, back to the home office to do paperwork, time for bed.

one way - take control of your life

What’s Wrong With This Picture?

Where do I begin! Too many people are living this so called Life. In reality, their “living” is draining the life out of them. What happened to taking time to smell the roses? Well, if you are flying through life like described, you don’t even see the roses!

You might say, big deal, everyone is living like this today. Everything is rush, rush, rush, with no time to breathe between activities. While that may be true, that doesn’t make it a good way to live. You are missing everything that happens today in your race for tomorrow! And then you wonder why you have so much stress in your life!

What Your Life Could Be If You Can Take Back Control Of It

Consider this – A warm day with the sun shining and a slight breeze blowing. You, sitting in a chair with a nice cool beverage of your choice, enjoying the sunshine on your face. Amazingly enough, you are on a mountain top, with no cell reception, no wi-fi, no distractions except the ones you want. Are you enjoying watching your kids play? Hanging out with your best friends? Watching the dogs run through the fields? (Does any of this even sound remotely familiar?) Do you remember the pleasant, calmness of doing nothing? Having no stress?

Which life would you prefer? Are you living that life? Are you being intentional in your day
