Developing Quiet Moments



Welcome to this week’s Recalibrate Monday!

Each week, I will bring a metaphor, story, or illustration to help grow your leadership and move your organization forward.
Where in your week do you hear from God? Do you find the time to pause and let Him speak to you? Even a quiet moment to yourself sitting in a restaurant can be a moment with God.

What power does a quiet moment between you and God hold?

OK. I’m sitting here at a restaurant, and I want to take a few moments to talk to you about the critical importance of finding moments in your week where you can withdraw, and just be by yourself. Man, we live in a chaotic world. And if you’re a leader in your church, or your business, or even you’re like that mom taking care of the young children, life can get so nuts.

Especially in light of of social media, that we never find time just to be alone, and quiet our souls. And I want to tell you as a leader, as a healthy leader, if you don’t find time where you can withdraw, where you can be by yourself, and read, meditate, pray, listen to music, journal, you will eventually be an empty leader. You’ll eventually be what I call a dysfunctional leader.

You’ll not be good for anybody. So here’s my challenge to you for this week. This week, recalibrate those quiet moments in your life. It may be five minutes, it may be three minutes, it may be even 30 minutes. Recalibrate them. Find a cadence, find a rhythm this week, where you can be alone, you can read, you can pray, you can journal, you can think as a leader, you can write to do lists.

Whatever it takes, find that new cadence in your life, no matter who you are. A business leader, a mom, a dad, a grandpa, grandma, whoever you are. Find those moments where you can be alone. Determine the place and the time, the place, and the time. Where will you do it, and what time will you do it? Recalibrate those moments in life, and I’m telling you, everything will change.
