Home Reflections I can relinquish control to others.

I can relinquish control to others.

I like letting others be in charge. It saves me time, energy, and worry while allowing me to happily go about my day, doing my best by controlling only myself! 

Even if I have the ultimate responsibility for the outcome of something, I can delegate individual tasks to others. I release the tendency to control any aspect of how the tasks are done, as long as they are completed effectively.
Everyone has their own unique way of doing things and I appreciate our differences. Letting others have control over their own assigned tasks results in better quality work. We work better together when I don't try to control everything.
This is true both at work and home. At work, my co-workers are more motivated when they know they share control. At home, releasing my control over many of the household tasks to my children allows them to feel needed and learn responsibility.
When I let go of having to control everything, it frees me! A heavy burden is lifted from my shoulders and I am able to go with the flow and just enjoy life!
As I release the need for control, I can feel stress and worry float away with it. I am happier and at peace when I let go.
Today, I choose to let go of any desire to control other people or events, focusing on the joyful simplicity of life when I only need to control myself.
Self-Reflection Questions:
1.    Do I find myself always trying to be the one in charge?
2.    What tasks can I delegate to others to free up some of my time?
3.    Do I allow my children to be in control of their own responsibilities?

The first time I heard about the kaizen principle was in the automotive industry where I worked for a Japanese company that prides itself from continuous improvement. When I heard you talk about this in the business marketing seminar, I thought this is going to be a great challenge. I had found the mentor I was Read more...

Hier is my opdrag vir die Kaizen uitdaging les 49. Ek glo dat jy dit seker in Engels sou verkies, maar alhoewel ek goed tweetalig is, sal ek nie reg aan die opdrag kan laat geskied as ek dit nie in Afrikaans doen nie. Ek weet jy verkies dat dit nie minder as 400 woorde moet wees nie en indien ek dit nie maak nie, sal dit bloot wees omdat Read more...
Wealth Insight 2009-10-30 The true nature of money – and why it matters Money is part of our everyday life. Like sunshine or rain. We even think of it as a kind of force of nature, not of our making. Yet money is a man-made thing. And the way it was made affects us. It encourages us to do certain things. For example, take inflation. Governments create inflation by printing too much money. They then hide the size of the problem. - So our hard-earned money loses value fast. - And we then... Read more...

The Kaizen Challenge is a time I can truly describe as the most exiting time of my life. A new birth for Marius Louis Adams! I grew up in a small mining town, where most people I known’s vision didn’t even reach the end of town. My life was mediocre. I never challenged myself. I never thought I could achieve anything that my parents or I could be proud of.  But then I committed my life to the Lord on 1 Read more...
