If you’re like most of my readers, you’re a successful, high-achiever. You are committed to winning at work, and—equally important—succeeding at life. You strive to grow, get better, and reach your potential. You want to leave a lasting impact on your world.
But something keeps getting in the way: There just seems to be too much to do and too little time. Maybe you feel like this reader:
I feel overwhelmed. No matter what I’m doing, I feel like I should be doing something else. When I’m traveling for work, I am missing my daughter’s soccer game. When I make the game, I can hardly resist the impulse to pull my phone out of my pocket and check my email. I constantly wonder if I’m missing something important at work.
Does This Sound Like You?
- Do you feel like life is coming at you faster than you can manage it?
- Do you fear the important things are falling through the cracks?
- Do you worry that what seemed temporary has now becoming permanent?
If so, you’re not alone. All of us have felt this way.
I Know How You Feel
I know what it feels like to be in over your head—to have your success outpace your ability to manage it, while still attending to the things that matter most—family, health, faith, and community.
For years, I, too, struggled to get off the treadmill. Too often, my success came at the expense of my health and my most valuable relationships.
As the former Chairman and CEO of major corporation, and now as a successful entrepreneur in my second career, I have faced the reality that there’s always more to do than there is time. But I also realized the answer isn’t simply to get more done. The answer it to get the right things done.
If you’re like me, that means making your relationship with God, your health, your marriage, relationships with your friends, your church, and your contribution to your community top priorities.
