Taking Time out does not mean stopping your Goals. It means reflecting on why you started. ~Dr. Shelly Cameron
I was driving to work deep in thought about the day’s schedule and some challenges that needed attention when suddenly I saw a sign that read “Be Prepared To Stop“. In their case they were talking about road work up ahead. In my case it meant to me that sometimes life’s goals will come with challenges. We set goals but we have to be prepared to stop, slow down, and wait until we get the GreenLight to go. At times there will be setbacks which may require us to make U-Turns or even change directions completely.
As you know, unexpected stops and delays can be annoying especially if you’re rushing somewhere that you really want to get to. You set goals and deadlines. Then suddenly something comes up causing delays. But it is all a part of the greater plan.
It’s In Time Away That We Get Clarity
You see, it’s in time away from our routine that we get clarity. Once we stop we are able to think clearly. All are necessary in life in order for us to achieve, to develop, and to grow. Sometimes we are so caught up in our life engagements that we miss the big picture. It is then that we need to de-stress. To take the time to take care of ourselves. To chill; to relax. Only then will we be able to think clearly on which direction to go.
Today, stop for a bit and reconnect with your future. Your goals depend on it. Need help? Let’s connect.
