What do you do when you have one of those days that you are just tired? I am talking not just physically tired but emotionally and spiritually tired as well. I know that I am definitely not alone in having those days. Well, today is one of those days. I admit that the thought of even writing a blog post seemed far from appealing. I have a very busy schedule today and tomorrow with some very important meetings and projects in the works. Yet, here I sit, tired and not feeling like being very motivational or creative.
Leaders and non-leaders alike have these kind of days. The challenge for the leader is that on these days it may be very difficult to lead well. When you are physically, emotionally, and spiritually tired, it is hard to focus on what people are saying beyond their words. It is difficult to avoid being reactive versus fairly analyzing the situation. It is even difficult to articulate a clear vision and purpose. Yet, those are all extremely important for a leader.
This is a time that I am so thankful I am a follower of Jesus Christ. Days like this one are the days that I know I have to solely lean on the Spirit. I need to rely on the Spirit to open my ears and my mind. I need to rely on the Spirit to guide my decisions and actions. I need to rely on the Spirit to be beyond myself and my situation. These are all truths of any given day in my life but I find it even more important on difficult days like this one.
So what do you do on these days? How do you successful maneuver through this type of day?
