3 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
Ecclesiastes 3 : 1- 8 NIV
I want to do great things with this life. But, I miss the mark. I know I shouldn’t, but I compare myself with others. I’m my biggest critic.
I heard on a podcast with Ricardo Semler that everyone lives in a different environment and there are many different species. That’s why you can’t always take blanket advice from people. But you have to modify that advice to fit and work for you.
But you have to modify that advice to fit and work for you.
I would love to hustle like Gary Vaynerchuk – but the stage in my life is very different from his. My daily life right now is challenging.
I have to remember to take care of my wife, three daughters, and all of the other variables in my life that are different than Mr. Crush It.
That doesn’t mean I should just give up and not make an effort to change the variables that are given to me.
I’ve been feeling guilty because I decreased the amount of productive/self-development and I’ve been severely lacking in the taking action department.
I need to remember that’s okay and live one day at a time.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that I need to cut myself some slack.
I’m sure if you’re reading this you do too.
Remember God loves you.
