They have them in NBA and NCAA basketball games, the Twenty-Second Time Out. It is a halt in the game that is called at a strategically important point. Inspire Moment #108 is about the Twenty-Second Time Out in your game, Your Life. The questions I want you to ask yourself today is this…
1) When do you take a halt in the game (of life) your playing in to think strategy?
If you’re in it to win it, what’s going to be different about today? Dwell upon having a more peaceful and joyful strategy. Because, you know what? It’s not just another day! (that’s the way I think at least)…It’s a NEW DAY to try a NEW strategy of doing, of acting, of serving, and all you need is a Twenty Second Time Out to start thinking that way.
2) When is the best time(s) for you to take your Twenty Second Time Out(s)?
Find the time. The worst time of the day could very well be the best time of day for you to take twenty seconds. If you don’t have a stop watch handy, I have a suggestion! Put your hand on your heart for twenty beats and rest in YOU and your strategy for today because before you know it you will be back to the game of life…and life can change in Twenty Seconds!
So let’s take some action! Why not take a Twenty Second Time Out right now? Start by taking a big deep breath in, and then release. You have plenty of time and when you are done, return for more Inspire Moments.
