Monday Morning Boost: Busy?

Monday Morning Boost: Busy?

It’s early Monday morning, the dawn of a new week, and I can sense the hustle and bustle already brewing. As you kickstart your week, let’s take a moment to ponder the concept of being busy.

Lee Iacocca urged us to channel our energies into positive endeavors, especially during the challenging parts of our journey. “In times of great stress or adversity,” he said, “it’s always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive.”

But then there’s Henry David Thoreau, advocating for the opposite approach. He believed that success often finds those who aren’t actively seeking it. “Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.”

At first glance, these viewpoints may seem contradictory, but they share a common thread: intentional focus.

Let’s delve deeper into the essence of busyness…

The truth is, you’ll always find yourself inundated with tasks and responsibilities. It’s an inevitable part of life. However, amidst the chaos, you can find clarity on where to focus your efforts when you intentionally create a vision that can become your North Star.

Creating and living an intentional life demands an intentional focus. Such focus will be the result of choosing to intentionally lead yourself.

And the great news…

You are already an Intentional Leader!

You are already a beacon of light leading yourself on life’s journey as you carve your path with purpose.

You don’t need assistance from fellow Intentional Leaders. You don’t require the support of a tribe. And you certainly don’t need me or the resources I offer through Red Edge Mentoring.

You’re already equipped to achieve remarkable feats without external aid.

However, if you aspire to infuse more intention, clarity, and velocity into your journey, there might be a solution worth exploring.

As you contemplate how to refine your Vision, execute your Strategy, and live your Promises, I encourage you to consider who could accompany you on this transformative expedition.

I’m here, ready to engage in that conversation… If you are also ready, drop me a note. 

Have a great Monday! Thanks for letting me share.

I Love You!

Les Patterson
