We will be CLOSED the following dates/times: Friday June 24 - Saturday June 25th for annual fishing trip up north. Monday July 4th
June is Birthday month for my wife, Anniversary month for us and Annual fishing trip up north for my father-in-law and I... which makes it a great month for "sharpening my saw".
Years ago I read a book called "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People". In that book, which I highly recommend you read, the 7th habit was to take time to sharpen the saw. This is the story that goes along with that habit:
A man was walking through a forest when he came across a frustrated lumberjack. The lumberjack was trying to cut down a tree with a dull saw and was sweating, swearing and cursing as he labored in vain.
"What's the problem?", asked the man.
"My saw's blunt and won't cut the tree properly", the lumberjack responded.
"Why don't you just sharpen it?"
"Because then I would have to stop sawing" said the lumberjack.
"But if you sharpened your saw, you could cut more EFFECTIVELY and EFFICIENTLY than before."
"But I don't have time to stop!" The lumberjack retorted, getting more frustrated.
The man shook his head and kept walking, leaving the lumberjack to his pointless frustration.
The story is relevant to so many of us, isn't it?
We get frustrated by life and our lack of time to get the things done that we know are important. Instead of developing ourselves and taking the time to become more effective, more healthy, and more relaxed, we keep struggling with a blunt saw.
Could it be we have forgotten in this day and age how to stay sharp? There is nothing wrong with activity and hard work. But, we should not get so busy that we neglect the truly important things in life like our personal life, taking time to get closer to our Creator, giving more time for our family, taking time out once a week to take our family to the chiropractor to be checked for subluxations and CRACKED... I mean... ADJUSTED, taking time to exercise, eat right, sleep, read, etc...
We all need time to relax, think, pray and to learn, grow and develop. If we do not take the time to sharpen the saw, we become dull and lose our effectiveness as an employer, employee or entrepreneur, as a father or a mother, as a son or daughter, as a spouse and as a friend.
Just as I will be taking time to sharpen my saw on vacations and by making time with my family a priority, I will encourage you to sharpen YOUR saw as well -- Just don't skip your weekly adjustments ;). May I suggest having your spine checked to make sure that your brain is fully connected to the approximately 70-80 trillion cells in your body without the interference caused by a subluxation as the first step to sharpening that saw? That would be an awesome first step to thinking more clearly, healing better and being a brighter light so that you can shine more effectively ON your family and IN our community.
