I've Finally Learned How to Juggle!
I have fortunately done many things in my life. Not the butcher, baker, and candlestick maker but pretty close. My father was the very first entrepreneur that I knew growing up. In fact, the term entrepreneur was not even used when I was growing up. But one thing he drilled in his children was- go for all life has to offer. I guess I listened to him! Being a wife, mother, pastor's wife are not an easy jobs. Now add to that my desire to run for a political office in my hometown, and my decision to write my books and deciding to work on a few products for the marketplace.
I wrote my latest book- The Art of Juggling because I have been asked the questions over and over again. How do you do so much? How have you manage to hold a political position while married to a pastor of a growing assembly? How did you find time to write your books? How do you go after your dreams while working? How old were you children when you started to do “you”? How does your family handle all you are doing? And trust me the lists of questions have been ever increasing.
I’m here to tell you that it takes first of all fortitude to decide that you first of all want to juggle, what you are going to juggle and deciding how many pins or tasks you want to juggle. In this book you will be faced with the decisions, the challenges, joys, fulfillment of juggling with picking up and putting down pins.
There is no “One Size Fits All” in the world of managing tasks or juggling. The ability for one person to maneuver work, social activities, church, classes and family may not be the same for others. If there were one set of rules for getting it right, we would all be on the fast track to success in living. This is what makes it such a challenge because we are not all the same and we don’t all want the same things out of life. However, I believe a key component to living the life of our dreams and passions is learning the "art" to the juggle. Clearly knowing when to pick up and put things down. I'd like to ask you- what are you juggling now? Is it a task that you need to be doing now? What tasks are you doing than can wait? I'd like to hear from you. Share with me your joys and challenges of juggling.
