When you can’t stop moving then you’ve stopped living.
My mind did a full stop when I first read these words in Brian Brett’s book Trauma Farm. Yes, I thought, as counter-intuitive as it may sound, learning how to slow down does allow you to experience more. The message struck me as both poignant and timely with New Years just around the corner. How about for you?
Have you set any big goals for yourself for 2019? Are they related to getting more out of life than having to running flat out? Are you thinking that there simply has got to be more? Do you frequently regret not having the time to spend with your kids or friends? Are you tired of being tired?
If you’re like many of the busy men and women I work with, you’ve been asking yourself some version of these questions. Perhaps now is the time to decide to change it up.
Here are five questions that will help you in your descent from warp speed:
- What do you want to see, feel or get more of?
- What will you change?
- What will you stop doing?
- What will you start doing?
- How will you feel a year from now if nothing has changed?
Why not make 2019 be the year that you decide to stop racing and start living? If you are tired of not getting much traction in this area then I am here for you. Feel free to get in touch!
