I’d like to push the power button, but I’m afraid I’ll miss something.
I’d like to focus one thing, but it’s easier to do several things instead.
All that surrounds me is noise.
Noise which starts within me.
I’d like to point a finger at someone else, but it always comes back to me.
I’m the one who tries to do too much.
I’m the one who goes into denial and says, “Sure, I can do more.”
Then I loathe myself when nothing gets accomplished.
The truth is I can’t do more.
I have to do less.
We all have to do less.
Energy, time, and attention spans are finite.
We all need a break.
To step away from the busyness.
To start over.
To refocus on why we do—what we do.
I challenge you to refocus. Are you taking on too much? Do you need to step away?
Last year, I attended the Luminous Project and it made me realize how often I leave the Creator out of creativity. I also realized how much I desperately need more silence.
I’m very excited that the next Luminous Project is less than two months away. I will be there and I ask you to consider attending as well. It’s in Nashville, TN. You can read details here. If you have any questions, feel free to email me. I hope to see you there.
