Maybe we need to stop planning so much.
Don’t get me wrong. Most of us talk and often act with little thought. And I am not advocating for that in any way.
This is about paralysis.
What about all that planning you have been doing to volunteer one day? One day you might start giving to charity too?
Just a little more time. And a little more consideration, right? Stop it.
I say, you need to stop your planning and jump into this crazy life with us. I’m inviting you.
See, you can only ponder and dip your toe in the pool for so long before it’s time to jump in.
Here’s the thing: we usually don’t need all the plans we make. Sure, plans can help from time to time, but planning to love people is different than just loving people. For some people, it’s easier to make plans than to make time. If this is you, here’s how to fix it: make love your plan. There’s less to write down that way.
