Monday Morning Boost: Why Are You So Busy?

Monday Morning Boost: Why Are You So Busy?

It’s Monday morning, the start of a new week, a week for both you and me will be extremely busy. As you start out your week, I invite you to think about what it means to be busy.

Lee Iacocca counseled us to keep busy. “In times of great stress or adversity, it’s always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive.”

Henry David Thoreau took the opposite side of the spectrum and strongly encouraged us to not be too busy. “Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.”

What may appear as contradictory points, I see the common counsel to be intentionally focused.

See, here’s the deal with being busy…

You will always be too busy.

And that’s a promise.

There is no room for busy when you are Intentionally Focused.

Let’s explore what this means…

Creating an Intentional Life is an intentional process of Vision, Strategy, and Promise…

❤ VISION ~ Creating a vision for what the best version of you will be and what your best life will look like.
❤ STRATEGY ~ ️Executing a strategy to create your Vision.
❤ PROMISE ~ ️Making key promises that will empower you to stay focused on creating that vision.

Thus, creating an Intentional Life requires Intentional Focus. And Intentional Focus requires Intentional Leadership.

I can promise you are already an Intentional Leader creating an Intentional Life.

And you don’t need any help.

I mean it.

  • You don’t need help from other Intentional Leaders.
  • You don’t need to be surrounded by a tribe of Intentional Leaders.
  • You certainly don’t need me or what I offer through Red Edge Mentoring.

You don’t need anything else to do the great things you are already doing.

But, if you want to move forward with more intention, more focus and clarity, more speed, there just might be a solution available.

As you consider how you can best create your Vision, best execute your Strategy, and best keep powerful Promises to yourself, I invite you to open your mind and heart to who could help you along that journey.

I’m ready for that conversation… Are you?

Have a beautiful Monday! Thanks for letting me share!

Les Patterson
