Is the Urgent Keeping You From the Important?

“Don’t live the same year 75 times and call it a life.” – Robin Sharma

Welcome to the second half of the year! In my life, I’ve found that it is far too easy to let time slip away. Between houses and spouses, seeing friends, and making ends meet, our days can easily be filled with the urgent rather than the important*.

Are you on the way to meeting the goals you’ve set for the year? Have you started? Did your plans get put up with your winter coat, in favor of sticking with the same routine, the same well-oiled groove from last year?

Sometimes routines, patterns, grooves, they’re great. Sometimes old habits and easy patterns prevent us from seizing opportunities for growth.

The good news is that the smallest nudge can help us get the momentum to break free of negative patterns (remember how our parents told us no to put pebbles on railroad tracks because it could derail the train – like that, but in a positive way).

May this be a reminder for anyone who needs it, that it’s never too late to find a new track. If your work life is part of what needs changing for you, a good recruiter can serve as that pebble to help nudge and facilitate jumping the track – in a positive way.


*This isn’t to imply that spouses aren’t important, but I could think of another word that fit the rhyme.
