Some days, I don’t feel like I’m the one at the steering wheel. I feel like god, the universe, or some other unnamed force is.
I met a friend for a quick chat at Starbucks today. When I showed up, he was there with another friend, who shared:
God can bring you exactly where you need to go. You don’t need a phone. You just need to pay attention to signs and promptings. It’s the same thing with rest. Rest is an essential part of life, and when you are prompted to rest, the best idea is to rest.
I, in turn, shared when I was prompted to go on sabbatical back in summer 2013. A podcast had planted the idea in my mind, and I followed through, because a season was ending in my life.
It would seem, the universe’s message to me today, is to rest.
Because today, I have mostly been unfolding conversations instead of just sitting at a desk typing out words. Which has been amazing.
Who’s at the steering wheel? I don’t know. But you would do well to follow promptings to rest.

Welcome to another #StrategySunday, champ!
Systems are there to serve you. You’re not there to serve them.
Which is why this week’s #StrategySunday is different.
I’m taking a strategic break from the usual rigmarole of trying to get all my ducks in a row.
Instead, I’m looking at how to cut back on current responsibilities for the sake of my own health and well-being.
I’m planning to take a 10-break at the beginning of June.
But even leading up to that point, I will be keeping a close watch on my energies. I’m even looking at taking a sabbatical from Twitter and Music Entrepreneur HQ.
This will not be effective immediately, nor will it be permanent, as I have some work left to complete. But suffice it to say I won’t be putting any extra effort into these channels for a few weeks.
I do have other projects and staff writing duties to tend to until I go on break, so I will be prioritizing these, while ensuring that I spend more time resting.
I look forward to getting back to the work that matters to me and inspires you. But first, I need to recharge.
Thanks for joining me, champ!

That’s it for this week’s #StrategySunday. Wishing you the best of weeks!
