How Do You Stay On Track?

If you’re like me, you lay out a plan and run 90 mph toward it. Every once in a while, I find it’s best to put up my own STOP sign and pause to reevaluate what I’m doing, how I’m doing it and why I’m doing it. I need to touch base with my higher purpose and make sure that all the activity I’m doing is helping me to achieve the unique purpose I’m here for. That process takes time and solitude. It can’t be done between emails, phone calls and meetings.

So three or four times a year I head off alone to a retreat center or to my cabin for three to five days. During this time, I’m off the grid. No emails, phone calls or Facebook. This is head time and heart time. This is time to evaluate who I am now (because I’m always growing), where I am now (because it’s often different) and where I’m going (because it might change). Most of all, it’s time to be sure I’m becoming the best ME that I can be.

If I don’t hit PAUSE once in a while and make sure that I’m on track, I’m no good to my clients, my team, my family, my friends or my volunteer groups. They all deserve the best I can be!
