It’s Okay to Go at Your Own Pace


There is a lot going on right now. Do you feel it too? Isn’t it all supposed to slow down again at the beginning of the year?

It feels like everyone I am talking to these days are experiencing something similar. They were looking forward to everything slowing down after the holidays but instead it feels like it’s just getting faster, more hectic, a bit more chaotic. In business or not, many people are feeling the same way right now.

If you are with me here, I want you to know it’s okay to do things at your own pace! Actually, it’s important you honor your feeling and where you are at right now and slow things down to match where you need to be. 

I was talking with a new client the other day and I was reminded that oftentimes we are trying to make everything fit into a timeline of our own design. I remind myself frequently that most of these deadlines are just in my head, an arbitrary number I put together to make myself feel better. But often, I find these deadlines actually make me feel worse, more frantic, frazzled and overwhelmed. 

Maybe it’s time to extend some of those deadlines for yourself, give yourself more grace, more time to do things the right way in this season. Let this be your permission, and mind, to slow down and take things at your own pace. I promise, the world and your business will still be there!
