Assuming you have a car that works, you only need one thing to successfully drive to a place: gas in the tank.
If you take that away, you can’t really drive anywhere.
When I figured out what story I wanted to tell with my children’s book, I understood what my destination was. Despite feeling overwhelmed with all the possible paths, I got a sense of direction. That gave me a reason to drive.
Granted, I don’t know which roads are better or take me to my goal faster, but as long as I can keep on driving, I’m certain I’ll get there (yes, even if I happen to take a few wrong turns along the way).
…and every time I feel lost, I can count on my Circle Of Trust to point me in the right direction.
My Children’s Book Project Depends On How Much Gas I Have In The Tank
That means I need to save up as much energy as I can to keep working on what matters the most. If I run out of gas, it doesn’t matter how much I want to drive. It’s on me to make sure the tank is full.
Sometimes the answer is as easy as to let things fall. Other times, it’s a matter of planning…
What Drains Your Energy?
I believe that it’s easier to figure out how to save our energy if we understand how and where we’re spending it first.
Grocery shopping leaves me drained. It’s like running a marathon with a cart!
If I head out on a morning or afternoon, it completely wrecks my productivity for the day.
Instead, I came up with a couple of solutions: do the big bulk of grocery shopping online, or go in the evenings, after a day of work.
By pairing the mindless tasks with when I’m mentally drained, I save up gas for my important journey.
What about you? What can you do today to save up gas and start driving?
