Putting Freight Where it Belongs

I wish two things for you this year: 1) More Cargo in your Truck 2) Less Cargo in your Head You know what cargo in your truck looks like. So what is cargo in your head?


I wish two things for you this year:
1) More Cargo in your Truck
2) Less Cargo in your Head
You know what cargo in your truck looks like.
So what is cargo in your head?
It is all the stuff that is weighing on your mind (maybe for years now) that you haven’t sat down and dealt with. Only you know what cargo you are carrying in your ‘noggin.
Cargo in your truck leads to revenues. Thats great.
Cargo in your head is costing you big time. Until you sit down and deal with the stuff that is consuming your thoughts you can’t possibly focus on doing the things that will bring you success. As you aren’t focused, the things you need to worry about keep piling up.. until it seems life is out of control.
What does Head cargo look like? Here’s a few examples with a suggested solution:
1) Bad Finances: Solution – A Plan. Sit down with the planner and work out a plan that is feasible. One that allows you not to be constantly worried about them.
2) Bad Relationships at Work/Home: Solution – Feedback. If you aren’t getting what you need from someone at work or are hurt/angry with them, they need to know. Don’t attack them personally , just tell them how you feel and the specific behaviours that caused that feeling. Then you can ask them to change. When you let your feelings out.. the cargo gets a whole lot lighter, no matter how they react.
3) Uncertainty: Solution: Plan. Change is ever increasing in our lives and that isn’t going to stop. When you walk into a period of uncertainty having a plan for even the worst case scenario.. you can breathe easier and just focus on making the best of the new world.
The question I always ask myself is: When am I going to be fed up enough with being fed up or angry or worried or distressed to finally do something about it?
Today is a great day to take a step towards dealing with those things that are weighing you down. Free yourself up for success.
Heres a toast to tons of extra cargo in your trucks this year and way less in your head!
Thats a great plan.
