I used to be a big planner, I plan for my day, my week, my month and my year. If you talk about goals, then you are talking to the right person. I set goals and I am arrow focus on my goal. It worked for me for a while, until I realized that there is a cost to it: I am either living in the setting the goal mode or achieving the goal mode, I forget on how to live my life in between.
At one point, my leadership tribe member told me that I need to learn to surrender and enjoy doing nothing. Doing nothing sounds little scary to me at beginning, then I started to ask myself: what I am not trust of, what I need to hold on tightly to make it happen.
Today I receive an important message for my life: You must be willing to lose it all before you can have it all.
It means that until you can let go of everything, you will find it hard to hold onto anything.
Detachment is the key. If you are so attached to something that you are deeply unhappy without it, then you are not simply attached, you are addicted.
Maybe it is right, I attach to things, when I look too close to the result, I forget to enjoy the process. When I am too addict to do it my way, I closed up all the doors to other opportunities. Today, God let me access the power of surrender.
