Be wholeheartedly somewhere rather than halfheartedly everywhere.
I feel extraordinarily fragmented right now.
- I live between two houses. One of is for sale and the other I’m remodeling to move into.
- I don’t have an office so I office in many different places but none of them feel like “my space”.
- And on Sundays I bounce between 5 different campuses.
I’m usually ok with juggling a lot of different things. I’m not overly sentimental so I don’t get too bound by tradition, however having so many areas of my life disjointed is causing me to lose focus.
Sometimes I’m just not sure where I “should” be since there are so many places I “could” be.
I realize that feeling so halfheartedly a part of many things is making me less effective.
As leaders, the natural progression is to lead and manage more and more. But I think we have to always be careful to narrow our focus and wholeheartedly commit to the things that need us most.
So my Sunday Lesson this week was to commit to being “wholeheartedly somewhere rather than halfheartedly everywhere.”
Have you ever felt this way? How did you realign your focus?
