Life Happens

“Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans”.
-John Lennon

Life happens. Don't get upset. It is what is. Things unravel and come undone. People get sick. Schedules change. Things just happen.

Whether you are leading a meeting, teaching a Sunday school class or presenting a workshop, you need to be flexible. You can't lose it simply because things are not working. Keep it together.

Life happens.

The next time things go out of sync:
  • Accept it: Since it happens like it happens, deal with it. Come to grips with it and don't let it get to you. Deal with it. Simply accept it.

  • Adjust to it: Once you have accepted it, you need to adjust to it. Make immediate changes to get through the short-term period of adjustment. Simple shifts can certainly help you make things work out when you have to make changes and adjustments.

  • Adapt because of it: You've adjusted for now. Now, since you have some experience, make adaptations in your planning. Allow enough "wiggle room" for life to happen without having a total meltdown due to a two-minute emergency. Keep good notes as you reflect on this experience. Make the right adaptations as you plan for the next time.
