Who is in charge of you? Seriously – think about it – is it really you?
“Refuse to let the actions of others affect your attitude, and enjoy taking charge of your time and your life.”
– Paul J. Meyer
Let’s read this again now out loud this time.
Don’t confuse any part of this statement to mean you are off the hook in terms of your responsibilities to your work, career, family, community and your faith. No, not at all – in fact it is the opposite.
This statement means instead it is up to you to do more, be more, and spend more time in these areas. Stop making excuses that others are asking you to do other things so you are unable to do what you really should be doing with your time, energy and focus. After all…
Who is in charge of you?
Consider for a moment today – right now where do you spend your time in the following areas of your life:
FINANCIAL and CAREER
FAMILY and HOME
MENTAL and EDUCATIONAL
PHYSICAL and HEALTH
SOCIAL and CULTURAL
SPIRITUAL and ETHICAL
Go ahead and write in your current time allocated per area.
Now what would you like the distributions to be?
Write this in next to your current answer. How are you able to change where you are now to where you would like to be? What exactly needs to change?
Here is a tip – select the one area which you know should be more of a priority in your life – and yet the proof is here – this area is clearly not getting enough of your time or attention. Select this one area and make the adjustments necessary to change this situation.
Each week or each month go through your calendar or your planner and fill in where you are currently spending your time and where you really want to spend your time. Take a good hard look at your answers. Then select the one area where you feel the most drawn to spend more of your time and energy in and focus on making the changes necessary for this to take place.
