Today is always a big day in American culture. The day after Labor Day.
Kids go back to school. Business pushes hard for the last part of the year.
We are inclined to believe work is “getting things done.”
Without a solid plan I find I’m often getting things done that are not helpful for my overarching goals.
So I ask this of you this morning: Write down or review your plan this morning. What’s your plan for the rest of the year? What’s your plan for the next 5 years?
Once you know that, ask yourself what items you could do to work that plan.
You won’t be more rested than you are this morning (sorry, that’s true).
Use your best energy for the most important thing: Making your plan.
