This has been a crazy few weeks.
I ran my first 5K race on Labor Day, and surpassed my goal of finishing in 45 minutes: official time, 37:10. Yay!
I was rattled by bad news that resurrected bad memories that, like a shroud, I just couldn’t shake.
I found myself spinning in circles as I strove to read the insane number of blogs I have on my reader, while crafting comments that would provide value.
I yearned to be there for friends and family who, they themselves, were going through rough patches and challenges.
My plate is full to overflowing.
And then I read a post by Betsy Cross that underscored the point for me that; there are no coincidences in life, and things happen for a reason.
You see, in order to keep things on your plate when it’s already full to overflowing, something has to go. And today I’m making some decisions on what will stay and what will go. It’s kind of like clearing clutter in a house. (Is that why I’m having a garage sale this weekend? Hmmmm) I will reevaluate and keep what is useful, meaningful, important and significant. I will release the things that need to be released.
In business and in life, it’s important to periodically do this kind of pulse check. Take a good, hard look at what you’re doing, what you’re keeping and what you’re seeking, and critically evaluate what should stay and what should go.
What will you let go of today?
