Life is complicated and complex. Why?
What is so different about today compared to the lifestyle of 50 years ago? Why have we allowed our daily activities to be structured in such a way to alter the simplicity of life?
The purpose of the post is not to provide an answer to the questions. I am fully aware the answers are subjective and my experience is limited. However, a few simple ideas could help keep our leadership simple.
Remember who is in control, the One who holds eternity in His hands, and let Him have control. (I know, easier said than done)
Learn to say no. (I am preaching to me here)
Understand the limits of our abilities. (ouch)
Take a “full” day off every week and spend it with family. (I need this one)
Do not work in all three parts of the day. (thank you Neal Pollard)
Stop trying to get it all done the first day. (double ouch)
There is more to share, but if we will apply a few simple ideas, our leadership will last a little longer and be a little sweeter.
