Growth

What you feed will grow. Where are you spending your time, energy, money and thoughts?

I’m on what seems like such a set in stone schedule. It’s easy to get in a rut and stop growing. I’m challenging myself to look at my life and see where I can push myself to do more for others and spend more time with God.

It is never a convenient time to start something new or add another thing to our life but if I don’t start now, I probably never will.

I read a book in college for my marketing class called ‘The Dip’ tagline: when to stick and when to quit. It was all about quitting things that hinder you from doing better things. Quitting is often viewed with a negative connotation that you’re not tough enough to handle it and giving up is the easy way out. “what doesn’t kill you, will make you stronger” When in fact, quitting is often the best thing you could do for yourself… Quitting a toxic relationship, giving up a destructive habit, leaving a dead-end job. Quitting involves realizing your time, effort and energy is more valuable and may be better utilized in another channel. There are times when you’re just about to overcome “the dip” and get past the uphill battle and should stick with it. The book draws great distinctions between these two.

Anyways, all that to say it’s important to look at where you are spending time/energy/money/thoughts and evaluate if that is the best/ most productive thing you could be doing. Quit the things that aren’t, and stick with the ones that are.

What you feed, will grow. What are you feeding?
