"All too often our hurry is a sign of something else." ~ 23%
At the start of every new year, I pick a nonfiction book to motivate and fuel my new year intentions. I noticed a couple mistakes made, answers missed and tasks forgotten this past week. In a moment of self-reflection, I realized that I was hurrying for no reason. Once I slowed down and paid attention, all was back to normal. The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry by Pastor Comer will help me stay on the right track and block out the chaos of the world.
Think about it. Every time you make a mistake, were you in a hurry? When you forgot something at home, were you in a hurry? When you were in an accident, were you in a hurry? When you failed at something, were you in a hurry? I am willing to bet you answered yes. Let's stop this hurry mentality and nip this behavior in the bud.
While I gained understanding from reading The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry, I knew a few of the points discussed just would not apply to my life. It may sound frivolous but the author suggested minimal outfits per season. Tuh...me?! I understand busyness is not healthy but I draw the line at picking out outfits to wear. Those are minutes well spent. The book is also a bit repetitive but valid points are made. I recommend applying the tips that make you comfortable and will strengthen your personal spiritual journey.
