Good morning Team,

The coaches challenge for the week is to not rush through things. We all seem to have too much to do. Each day brings us a myriad of tasks that need completing. Our tendency is to rush though things to get them all done by the end of the day. But, when we do that, we often feel exhausted and unsatisfied by the experience. Our challenge is to try not to be overwhelmed by the amount of things that need doing and to take each thing as it comes and be present to that. I often tell myself, “do only what’s directly in front of you”, that is, stop worrying about all the other things that need to get done and stick with what I need to do in this moment.

There’s an appropriate saying from the Amish that reads, “It’s not rushing through tasks to achieve a series of goals that is satisfying, it’s experiencing each moment along the way.”

Have a great week!
