I am joining today with the #Five Minute Friday community of writers, where we write on a one word prompt for 5 minutes! Today’s prompt is: Achieve
I am certainly a task-focused person and often the task comes before personal relationships, before just sitting with someone and I’m sure I often trample on other people’s toes in an effort to finish my task as quickly and as efficiently as possible.
It is taking me a lot of intentional time and effort to move away from being that task-focused person to become more people focused and also to be ‘in the moment’, not being so busy completing my task, that I forget to enjoy, forget to look around and get the bigger picture, forget how it fits into the rest of my day or week.
So a couple of goals for me to achieve would definitely to ‘be in the moment’ and to put people before tasks.
I think this also ties in with ‘sitting at Jesus’ feet’, with meditating, with taking time out to Pause & Praise.
There is only one thing worth being concerned about.
Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.”
Luke 10:42 [NLT]
So today, instead of rushing through my day trying to complete and achieve all the things on my To Do List, I am going to practice pausing, to be in the moment and to be thankful for all that means and brings.
What about you, how can you pause & praise and keep in the moment instead of running ahead to achieve?
