Oftentimes my 7 year old daughter will complain she has nothing to do. I think to myself, “It must be nice.” I have plenty to do. It’s all more than I can handle.
There have been times I have been so overwhelmed with so much to do I did not know where to start. So I did nothing. I wasted the time playing on Facebook or something else unproductive.
Maybe you find yourself there. You just do not know where to start. So what do you do when you find yourself in that situation? This is what you do:
Start with the end in mind!
When you take a vacation you start with the destination in mind. Your destination determines your direction. When you know where you are going your choices are narrowed and focused.
So the next time you find yourself stuck, don’t ask, “What should I do next?” Ask, “Where am I going?” What to do next will be much clearer.
When we are stuck it is not always about having the right answers. It is about asking the right questions.
