Piecing It All Together

Piecing It All Together

Whew! Life can really be a whirlwind! So, how do we do everything we want to do without things spinning out of control?


As the old saying goes, busy people get more done. Why is this? Certainly there are lots of reasons, but a major factor is that these busy people have developed a system that allows them to accomplish more. Systems organize your choices and decision making.

If you have been a reader here for any length of time you are familiar with The Four Anchors. The Four Anchors is not any sort of magic, it is simply a system for decision making and organizing priorities in your life. This system, for which I believe there is abundant scientific support, allows us to do more and do it more successfully than if we pursue life by chance.

So, using the various aspects of our lives that have meaning as the template for our choices and decisions makes our daily paths easier to navigate. Using our physical, family, professional, and spiritual priorities as a daily matrix makes it much easier to priorities and execute on life’s challenges.

A very critical factor that we all must face is that having an organized life is a matter of choice, not chance. It is an active decision we all must make. Failure to consciously choose becomes an excuse for the ensuing chaos and ultimate failure. Then, once we make that decision we must execute it daily on a consistent basis.

The good news is that if we have the courage and discipline to execute our lives with a system for decision making, we are then rewarded with a lifetime of fulfillment and satisfaction. Certainly it is just like anything else, there is no reward without hard work.

Still piecing it together,
