Is your life busy?
I remember busy well.
Busy was a Monday flight to Seattle.
By midweek the SF Bay Area.
Then an early flight home on Friday followed by a race to my car to try and beat traffic and see my family for dinner.
Busy with rental cars, hotel check-ins, VPN access, conference calls, meetings, sales reports, CRM…
… trying to make time to eat adequate meals on a modest per diem, carve out a few minutes to FaceTime my wife and kids before bed and get some decent rest.
Busy was a distraction.
It met the urges of my racing mind.
And it made me feel secure.
But that was a complete illusion.
Busy kept me blind to purpose.
Busy was a trap.
It ensured fullness was a side hustle.
Faith, family, freedom, fitness and joy became part-time pursuits.
I was in the business of busyness – it was my income.
And who could deny a man’s focus on providing for the financial needs of his family?
That was a noble undertaking.
Providing is about more than money.
It’s about aligning with a will greater than your own and fulfilling it as a compassionate leader in your home.
Providing is a love story.
And there is no room for the love story to unfold in the busyness.
You have to make a choice and go all in.
Busy? Or full?
