Do you ever feel like you've lost control?
It's time to conquer the chaos and become a chaos killer. Over the last few months, I've gotten a little too familiar with chaos and what it takes to climb out of it. But we aren't going to talk about the dirty side, instead, I am going to share with you what it means to capture the chaos and keep it contained (so it can never come get you.)
It's about doing, not tweaking by Carl Pullein This is a fantastic article on Medium (one of my new favorite content sites). The biggest takeaway we can all grab from it is realizing in this new world shipping, instead of perfection, reigns.
My new youtube channel: Chad Brooks In this, I'm sharing a little more about life (alongside my wife Meredith). I already have two ironman texas vlogs and a timelapse or two up.
Chaos is in a direct relationship to capacity. When your capacity is hit to it’s maximum, in any area, and pushes pass it, then chaos invades your entire life and slowly begins to take it over. Like the raptors in Jurassic park, it is finding the weakest link in your defense system. Once in, it is capable of taking down the strongest place in your life.
There are three posts of chaos keeping: space, schedule, and soul. Each of these forms a protective element to keep those chaos raptors from destroying your life and sneaking in.
Schedules need a buddy. That buddy's name is goals. The listlessness we can experience in life is the best bud of chaos. Remember that.
I've been loving Michael Hyatt's new book Living Forward.
