Power Up Passages

Avoiding Rush Hour.

What is a lifetime of living your dreams worth to you?

July 18, 2003.

“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.”
Saint Francis de Sales

It’s easy to get caught up living a helter-skelter lifestyle in today’s hustle and bustle world. By rushing and racing around, burning our candles at both ends desperately trying to take care of everything that needs to be taken care of, we can burn ourselves out if we’re not careful.

When you toss in the stress and anxiety that accompanies day to day living, where we are regularly pulled in a number of directions all at once, we’ve got the makings of a real pressure cooker.

“Disorder is always in a hurry.”
Napoleon Bonaparte

Maintaining a calm center when the heat is turned up full blast is quite a challenge indeed. Just think about your usual day for a moment. You scurry over here and then scamper over there. And there’s always that constant urge to hurry, hurry and hurry basically everywhere you go.

Feeling turned upside down and all around seems par for the course these days. If you’re like most of us, you’re so busy just trying to keep up that you often fail to enjoy the best life has to offer. There’s got to be a better way.

“To get all there is out of living, we must employ our time wisely, never being in too much of a hurry to stop and sip life, but never losing our sense of the enormous value of a minute.”
Robert Updegraff

While we do need to use our time wisely, ever mindful to never foolishly fritter it away; we also need to slow down a bit and smell the roses along the way. Sounds good, but how do you skillfully pull off this juggling act?

Whenever you feel yourself going too fast and starting to careen out of control, you should immediately slow down the tempo. By taking your foot off of the accelerator for a few moments, you can regain control of your life. Instead of racing around at full throttle, you can relax for a precious minute or two before getting back into the action.

“Find ecstasy in life; the mere sense of living is joy enough.”
Emily Dickenson

John Wesley once said, “Though I am always in haste, I am never in a hurry.” Who could have said it better? Yes, you do want to keep moving towards the attainment of your goals and aspirations. But at the same time taking time, you need to enjoy the scenery along the way.

As you learn to mix a definitive sense of urgency with a healthy dose of rest as needed, you’ll have the makings of a lifetime of achievement.

The Bottom Line: Avoid the maddening rush hour traffic of daily living and you’ll soon be cruising on Easy Street.
