Reordering Your Busy Life Part 1
We’ve spent the last 2 weeks unpacking the problem with your overly busy life. And now we are going to do something about it. Grab a pen, grab some paper, grab your calendar, and buckle in, because I am going to take you through a process to reorder your life, with action steps.
The Roots of Busyness
Last week we introduced the 4th and final Barrier to Balance known as Busyness. I shared with you 6 reasons busyness is a bad idea and I encouraged you to ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life. Today I’m continuing the discussion by helping you get to the root of your busyness. As John Ortberg says, hurry isn’t just a disordered schedule, it’s a disordered heart. So let’s get our hearts in order.
6 Reasons Busyness is a Bad Idea
Other than complete disconnection from God, nothing will hinder our ability to stay balanced more profoundly or more consistently than being overly busy. It’s one of the enemy’s most brilliant tactics. Over-commitment—even with good, Christian things—causes fatigue, resentment, bitterness, and ineffectiveness in all things. If you’ve been following along with my series on Balance Barriers, this is the 4th and final one. It’s the Barrier of Busyness.
Breaking Free from The Comparison Trap
Last week in EP90 I introduced the one balance barrier that trips up every woman I know: The Comparison Trap. (barrier? trap? both?). I talked about the history of it--which literally begins with Cain and Abel, on page 3 of my Bible--and the problem with it. Today, let’s talk about what we can do about it. If you feel trapped by comparison to other women, I’m giving you 5 things you can do about it. Listen in.
The Comparison Trap
Way back in the spring of 2020 I started a series on the Barriers to Balance. We covered two of them: Perfectionism and People Pleasing (EP70-EP73). And then suddenly I found out we were moving and then I took a summer break and then I launched my new book. And now finally we are continuing with that series, nine months later. Today, we are introducing the one barrier that trips up every woman I know: The Comparison Trap. If you a woman, this is for you.
