I glanced at the blog over the weekend. To be honest, I was a bit disappointed in myself. When I added doing a blog to my personal growth plan at the beginning of the year, my goal was a post every other week. I saw that it was into the third week since I had posted. I have been blessed lately to be a part of my Pastor’s Coaching Network Group. He asked a question last week that I had been giving a lot of thought. He asked me what I felt my biggest barriers are? I am ready to answer him today…it is time. Chuck Carringer (http://www.chuckcarringer.com/), Family Ministry Pastor at Faith Promise Church, told me once that time is one of the most precious resources I will ever have. Today, I fully agree. I have been pushing it to the max lately and have really heard the ticking of the clock. What I wouldn’t give for a 26 hour day! Recognizing the problem in its self is huge. But, we can not stop with just recognizing it. We need a plan to get past what we are struggling with or going through. Today at work I have been reading as much as I can on time management from some people who excel in this area. It is important to find out who may have suggestions, who has walked through it, or who is an expert in it. Then soak in as much as you can! I am not going to take my car to Panera Bread to find out why it sounds like it does. I am going to take it to a trained mechanic. Here is a link to a website that I have been all through today: http://michaelhyatt.com/category/productivity. This guy had some great tips I could take away. I love what Proverbs 12:15 says “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man is he who listens to counsel.” There is nothing wrong when we ask for direction or seek help. I would rather ask for help today and claim victory than struggle on my own without success. I am ready to put a plan in place!
Today is the day I will recognize a problem area AND seek help/direction! Today is the day I will recover!
