Creating your best outcome

“You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret to your success is found in your daily routine.” – John Maxwell

I am a committed and disciplined person when it comes down to doing things I am called to do and that I care about.

Here is how I define some of the keys words that are listed in that sentence:

  • Committed — Making and fulfilling a promise made
  • Discipline — Doing the things that need to be done even when I don’t want to do
  • them
  • Called — Assignment from God that is initiated from a convicting act
  • Care — Love in action

Making up my bed daily is one of the things I do to maintain my commitment and discipline muscles. I also send text messages daily to various people in my network I most care about.

There is nothing more exhausting to me than to be doing things I’m not supposed to be doing with and for people that I don’t care about.

Before you write me off as an insensitive jerk, I believe all people and all things are important. But I don’t believe anybody has the capacity to care about all people and everything.

To care about yourself and/or somebody is to commit yourself to doing whatever needs to get done for you and others even when you don’t feel like doing it.

I am a coach. I care about using baseball as a vehicle to help others I care about become the best versions of themselves.

Every year from August through October, I submit to an assessment phase to determine what I care about and how I will care for those that I care about. I cannot care about everything and everybody and neither can you.

  • Who are the Top 5 people in the world that you care about the most?
  • What does it say about you if you are not on that top five list?
  • What has God called you to do in life?
  • What happens to you when you go beyond your capacity to care about others?
  • What do you do or should do daily to help you fulfill your life’s calling?
