Aug 3, 2015 - Are obligations overwhelming you? Are you feeling pulled in a multitude of directions, and many of the things being demanded upon you are not where your passion or interests lie? Have you agreed to certain tasks or responsibilities that feel more like an additional burden? When obligations feel like they are controlling you more than you are controlling them, it is time to better understand why this has happened.
Take an MM&I Moment to assess the myriad of commitments, obligations and responsibilities that are draining you more than serving you. Which ones are absolutely necessary and must be done? Which ones, including those that are necessary, could be handed off to someone else to do? Which ones have you committed to out of a need to prove something to someone or because you feel you owe someone? Which obligations are the result of your inability to say no because you like to be needed? As hard as it may be to admit, the first step to taking back control is admitting and acknowledging what you have done to contribute to the chaos and overwhelming circumstances that are occurring. The next step is to methodically eliminate and delegate in order to reignite and redirect your focus where your desires are best served.
