In a world of constant distraction, how do you focus on what is important? Watch the one minute video above for great advice from Rob Bell.
And the next new thing in your life comes when you leave behind things that previously would have belonged.
You, fully grounded and centered doing a few things, not distracted, or exhausted or or burned out, but you fully present doing a few things are 10x more powerful than you spread thin busy being distracted doing a 1,000 things.
In order to say no you first had to have said yes.
For many people there is no filter for what they say no to. It begins with a few things you have said yes to.
Ask yourself, What are the few things you are here to do?
And then you say no to everything else.
You know you are making progress when something that would have survived 18 months ago, no longer makes the cut because there is always a narrowing of the way.
The narrowing of the way always involves saying no to something that previously would have survived.
You are the steward of your energies.
Where are you using your energy?
Rob Bell, How to Be Here, June 2016
I plan to do a short post on this topic. Mainly just reminding folks to ask themselves,”is this the best use of my time?”
I think that is a great question to ask – always. Looking forward to visiting your blog. Thanks for visiting and your thoughtful reflections.
