This is not for you…
IF you are one of those people who are just TOO BUSY to pause and sharpen your saw, then, you can stop reading.
Now that I got your attention and you have reached this point, it only means that you are really looking for something that will change your life for the better. The series of blogs here in Convergent Experience are regular articles for nourishment, motivation, inspiration in your pursuit of a more productive, meaningful and balanced life.
So, how will you know IF sharpening the saw is really for you?
Here are 5 SIGNS that you need to do something about it.
- You feel stuck. You don’t know what to do and cannot move forward.
- You are tired and are just trying to make it through the day – everyday.
- You are lost in your day to day activities as if on auto mode.
- You’re mind always wonder “Is this really what I want to be doing for the rest of my life?”
- Nothing seems to be working in your career, relationships and faith.
AND 5 BENEFITS from engaging yourself in articles to sharpen your saw.
- You will be able to move. It starts with a decision to do something about it. Just do it!
- You will feel refreshed, renewed and motivated. Emotions follow your actions.
- You can determine what are the things you need to do within the day that impacts your life the most.
- You now have a sense of purpose and significance as you pursue what is most important to you.
- Everything will just suddenly work once you put into action what you learn.
Life offers everyone a chance to BE BETTER…EVERYDAY!
Just like a carpenter who has a big task ahead, he will start the day by making sure his work will go as planned. For one, his tools should be able to work as expected.
You can start each day with 5 ACTION TOOLS.
- Pray. You will really need to connect to a higher purpose everyday.
- Plan. It doesn’t have to be a grand plan. Just a simple bullet points of the things you need to do for the day will be a good start.
- Prioritize. Tackle the “most urgent” tasks, then move on to the “urgent and important” but don’t forget to allot time to the “really important” tasks.
- Push. Get to work at once. Taking action will make you feel a sense of accomplishment early on and can motivate you for the rest of the day.
- Practice. Keep in mind what you learn everyday and put it into practice. This way you will get better and better without you noticing it. The people around you will notice and tell you. That’s a big enough sign that you are improving.
Last thought. Don’t be afraid to fail.
That’s how everything works. It’s a daily dose of failures and successes that will define most of what we learn in life.
And there’s one word for that…EXPERIENCE!
Keep Moving Forward!
