You Should Know Better

Have you ever done something then you tell yourself you should know better?

This is the challenge we have, something comes up and the day is going crazy and in a split second you make a decision. Then at the end of the day or maybe later on, you are like hmm .. I should have known better.

Think of it this way every second of the day you are making a decision and sometimes you are on auto pilot, and you do and say things that you are like – did I just say that? or did I just do that?

Everything starts in the mind, as a matter of fact all thoughts start in the mind and then you make the decision to take action on it. Hence the reason to be present in what you do. Some things to think about:

  • Don’t let anyone rush you into a decision.

  • There are thousand of opportunities out there so if you miss one another one would certainly come up.

  • Always look at the issue from end to end. If I do this what would happen down the road? It is like saying take this drug it would make you feel good, your problems would feel like nothing, but if you look at the end result, the drug is damaging your nervous system, also damaging your relationships and your loved ones, you may even overdose and die. So ALWAYS look at the issue from end to end, so later on you do not have to tell yourself – you should know better.

Don’t do something and later on tell yourself: you should know better.

As we go through the day there are times when there is some doubt about what to do or what should be done. Instead of rushing to make a decision and regretting it later on, the best thing to do is to PAUSE. This gives you time to think about the best option. Look at it from end to end.

Anger sometimes get us into real trouble. Have you ever felt so angry with someone on the job or at home and things really get out of hand? You end of saying or doing things that you totally regret. When you begin to get angry the best thing to do is to PAUSE. When you PAUSE the brain gets time to assess things, you are able to look at the situation a little better and you are able to respond without all the anger and anxiety.

These days there are so many things coming at us – issues with our jobs, we maybe cooped up in our homes so there are relationship issues and issues with the business, and the stress keeps piling up, getting more and more. As we get more stressed we begin to do strange things, we snap at everyone including our loved ones. We also become very depressed and anxious. The best thing to do when you recognize that you are becoming stressed is to PAUSE. When you PAUSE your breath gets slower you become more relaxed, you are able to think clearly, and deal with your various situations in a calm and composed manner.

When you PAUSE take some time to pray about your various situations. Praying helps to bring things into perspective. There is clarity when you release everything to God and ask for help.

Prayer never fails.

The value of timespend your time wisely

How you spend your time for the rest of the year would determine how you would finish the year.

From the time the clock alarms or whenever we awake it is a race against time.

The question is can you really race against time?

No one can prolong time, it is fixed, we all have the same 24 hours per day or 86,400 seconds.

Pay attention to how you spend your time, be mindful of your decisions that consume your time as your navigate throughout the day. Every decision you make either moves you forward or may take you two steps. This is your valuable time.
