Make the Time to Think – Reduce Stress & Find Clarity

Knowledgeable folks know that if they want something done, then sometimes their best bet is to recruit the busiest people they know. Have you ever stopped to wonder why?

Self-help is everywhere you turn: on the grocery store isle, in book after book and on webpage after webpage.

Time management, prioritization,

simplifying your life, meditating, doing yoga,

going on a diet, buying a better chair,

sitting less, reading more….

The lists go on and on.

Although all these tidbits are helpful, something is missing.

I have a theory. I believe that some of the most successful people, effective leaders and the rocks in our communities know a secret, something that was ingrained in them. Julian Smith wrote about it in his 19 Thoughts About Finding Your Purpose.

It was lucky number 13, which I will be sharing with you today, Friday, July 13, 2012.

“Find the time to think.” – Julian Smith

Julian you are a brilliant thought leader, but I am going to take it one step further and encourage our readers to MAKE the time to think. This is an action, a choice and a necessity. Make time to think and in doing so you will decrease the stress levels in your life, which will lead to more effective action and will help you find clarity and purpose in all that you do.

Thank you, my friend, Maureen Keese for reminding me of this today. How do you make time to think?
