Endless to do lists.
A crying toddler 🙂
All of these and more can contribute to chaos in our lives. When things are chaotic we’re just surviving not thriving.
My friend Mariane Renner, this week’s podcast guest and author of the book Chaos to Clarity says “Chaos is the biggest thief in our lives. It robs us of our goals, our dreams, our true purpose, and of living the lives we were meant to live.”
When chaos is present we may be busy but we’re usually busy with distractions.
So how do we break the cycle of chaos? Marianne says we need to get focused on our purpose.
We have to know our why. When we have clarity of purpose we’ll be directed to the next right action and cut through the chaos.
Doing the next right action means we’re not busy with those distractions and we’ll be moving our business forward.
