Most time saving tips focus on your schedule and we need those. But that’s not why you come here.
When we are overwhelmed, it’s easy to become distracted and stuck in false starts. It’s the fast-track to decision fatigue and I want to help get you out of it.
It’s counter-intuitive, but what I often need most when I’m in a rush is to slow down. It helps me think better, discern better, and gently take just one next right step instead of tripping over twenty.
Allow me to help you slow for a few moments so that you can pay attention to what’s happening beneath the surface.
The internet tells us adults make over 35,000 decisions every day, but I would guess when we are in the midst of a major life transition — a job change, an engagement, a new house, a new baby, new school, injury or diagnosis, new responsibilities or even a crisis of faith — the number of new decisions goes up and the weight of the usual ones are even heavier.
If you are in a time of transition, you are a prime candidate for decision fatigue. For anyone who needs to re-focus and receive what this transition has to teach you instead of running past it in excitement or running from it in fear, I give you this — A Soul Minimalist’s Guide for Starting Over.
Every choice we make determines our life in big and small ways.
But with the state of our soul and the pace of our lives, are we giving ourselves the room we need to make thoughtful decisions, much less ones that actually reflect who we are and what we feel called to? What does it mean to let things go? What do we need to release?
For anyone who wants to uncover some of those things so that you can move forward in love, I give you this — A Soul Minimalist’s Guide to Letting Go.
No matter how organized we get, how much we plan, how prepared we are for what might come, one thing we can always count on is that the people in our life will surprise us, delight us, disappoint us, overwhelm us, or confuse us.
We can manage our time, our work, and our agendas but we cannot manage relationships. At least, not if we want them to be healthy.
How can we discern a next right step with the people in our lives when they can be so unpredictable and. . . people-y?
For anyone who wants to remember some basic but often overlooked foundational truths about relating with people, I give you this — A Soul Minimalist’s Guide to Relationships.
