KEEP YOURSELF FROM BEING AN URGENCY JUNKIE!



You wake up at 6am and whip out your mental notebook of things to do:  Shower.  Get the kids up and ready for school.  Fix four lunches.  It's your day to carpool the neighborhood kids.  Go to work. Have a lunch with an old friend.  Buy groceries.  Drive home.  Fix dinner.  Check homework.  Take kids to Scout meeting.  Finish a few reports from work.  Crawl into bed at midnight. You barely close your eyes and the alarm goes off on another whirlwind day.  As with every day it seems you have too much to do and too little time. 

Is "having it all" too much?  Are you feeling miserable and can't understand why?  After all, you love your job.  You're happily married.  You have four wonderful children, but what you don't have is a spare moment to enjoy any of it! 

Don't despair!  You're not alone in this.  It's estimated that perhaps millions of people suffer from "urgency addiction".  They feel as if they are a slave to an unrelenting schedule.  They no longer have ownership of their time. 

What's causing this overdose of obligations?  Some blame the reality of modern times.  It's true that the complexity of our world is unprecedented.  We have too many choices.  And, as too many bricks on a table will cause it to collapse, many people have added on too many bricks (called choices) and they're about to collapse.  In these cases no time management class or book will relieve the pressure or prevent the crash.  Especially where women are concerned they've been told:  Women's LIB you can have it all.  When I'm afraid it's really:  Women's FIB! You can't have it all, there's too much to have! 

If all of this hits too close to home, it's time you have a serious look at your choices.  Take them before the Lord and ask for wisdom in where to make major cuts in activity.  With God's help you can stop being an "urgency junkie".  And, you'll begin to realize, "You can't have it all, but you can have what really counts."
