Steering the Ship
Sometimes at the beginning of the week, we can get caught up in plans and routine. We have a path in mind for how our week is supposed to go, and when it doesn’t, we start to stress out. It can be an easy to fall into the habit of trying to steer the ship the way you originally planned. All of a sudden you find yourself stuck fighting against the wind at every turn just trying to get back to where you were. You can end up feeling drained and lacking motivation.
Adjusting the Sails
Having a plan at the beginning of the week isn’t a bad idea. In fact, it’s a great one. The thing to remember is to be flexible when obstacles invariably arise. You’ll find that if you’re prepared for a couple detours here and there, you’re stress level will decrease and you’re ability to accomplish the task isn’t too hindered. You may even feel more motivated each time you conquer a small snag on your journey.
Finding the Opportunity
Adjusting your sails with the changes in the wind will also lead to new and unpredictable places and opportunities. Opportunities you may never have come across if you were too busy trying to stay on course with your original plans. These opportunities can also help you attain your original goal. Don’t be afraid of changes in the wind, embrace them!
