I Can’t Find My Shoe…

I can't find my shoe

“Life is so hard” cried my 6-year-old daughter.
When asked why, she exclaimed, “I can’t find my shoe.”

Small things have a way of becoming big things; taking our eye off the important things.

If your attention is being drawn in on one particular shoe at the moment, consider:

  1. How important is this in the whole scheme of things?
  2. Is it worth worrying about?
  3. Is this within my control or outside of it?
  4. How much time will it take to resolve and for what outcome?
  5. Is there a downside if I give it no attention?
  6. If it needs attention, what is the quickest way to get resolution in order to move on?
  7. What will focus on the lost shoe cost me financially, emotionally and in productivity?
  8. Am I merely reacting to the situation?
  9. Is worrying about it going to change anything?

Sometimes, going after a lost shoe might be important, but most often, it’s simply easier to go buy another pair.
