The Benefits of Packing Light

Dear Uncommon Leaders, 

Hope these lessons from the Camino continue to be helpful to you as you walk out your own journey in life and leadership. Keep going! Have an uncommon week!

Your Sunday Nugget

This Week's Lesson:

There is a huge benefit in packing light.

This Week's Challenge: 

My first hike on the Camino was with a pack that was too heavy. I ended up leaving certain items along the way to lighten my load,which made the walk so much more enjoyable. It made me think about how many burdens, worries, regrets, etc. that we carry around every day. Those things can bog us down as leaders. One regret in particular occupied my mind far too often and there was nothing I could do about it. The Camino taught me to let it go.

Your challenge this week is to think about burdens that you are carrying around that you don’t need to carry any longer. Sometimes as we let things go, our journey becomes more enjoyable. How will you lighten your load this week?

This Week's Quote to Ponder:

The heaviest burdens that we carry are the thoughts in our head. – Tamara Kulish

Until next week,
