The day was almost over. Having just wrote and sent that last email of the day, I was excited to turn off my computer, gather up my things, and head home for my day off. Before shutting down my computer I checked my task list to see where I stood and there it was. The long list of things that were yet to be done with additional ones I thought of to add.

At that exact moment my wife texted and asked me to stop by the store on the way home, one of our kids was sick. So I headed out with a few things on my mental to do list when I was stopped by a co-worker on the way out the door who asked me for my help with another project. In that moment, life felt chaotic.

Leadership can be that way…chaotic. But the good news is, it doesn’t have to be. Which is why I needed to reminders from Carey Nieuwhof’s article “5 Signs You’re a Slave to Leadership Chaos“. I have to admit I still see bits of all 5 signs in my life, but I’m working on them.

If you are a leader or hope to lead in the future do yourself a favor and read this article. I hope it challenges, convicts, and encourages you to take action like it has for me.

As always be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day!
