Want to know how to overcome scatterbrain?
I tell ya! Finally! SOMEONE who understands me! Yes! I just figured out how to overcome scatterbrain.
In his webinar, he mentioned “scanner personality” and then “scatterbrain.” My ears perked up and he mentioned another link to a website of absolute monumental proportions for me.
Now, I’m not talking about stressful situations where you lose your car keys or forget an answer on a test. Nor days in the church office where you lose yourself in tasks of lesser importance, look up and realize it’s already 6 pm and you’ve got to run home, slam dinner down your throat before Bible Study or small group begins at 7 pm.
No, I’m talking about real, live, getting through to how to overcome scatterbrain once and for all.
I was told by my beloved music teacher in high school that I was going to be a John Lennon within 10 years of graduation. Although I LOVE music and LOVE to create, I haven’t “made it” in that profession yet. I HAVE made an income through music. I served a church in the worship leader role. I’ve played in bands. I guess by that definition, I was a professional musician.
But, my interests also have led me to PEOPLE, so I became a pastor. I love people. Christians are some of the neatest people ever, and I want to help them become more like their Lord and Savior. As a pastor, I love other pastors. They are my friends. I understand pastors. I’ve been in full-time ministry since 1994.
However, I love the MILITARY too. So, I’m an officer helping military people with their spiritual and emotional needs.
I have spent time in many jobs: selling books online, event planning, office machine sales, online education consultant, corporate recruiter, trainer… I even spent a year and a half troubleshooting computers for the Navy and Marine Corps. If I spelled out every job I’ve had on my resume, your head would spin. ALL OF THAT WAS WHILE I HAD THREE TO FOUR KIDS AND WAS PLANTING A CHURCH!
Key to How to Overcome Scatterbrain
Overcome scatterbrain? No! I recommend you forget about overcoming it.
Embrace your scatterbrain!
Realize there’s even a word for it now: “multipotentialite.”
Thank you for unlocking the door to realize that although I haven’t “grown up” yet and “settled down,” I enjoy learning and helping people. I think self-actualization just cranked up a notch tonight! Thank you, Jesus, for allowing me to be me. No, thank you for helping me overcome scatterbrain by embracing it.
I believe You created me to have these many interests and experiences. Sure, I had a hand in it with some wild-eyed decisions (which my wife didn’t always appreciate by the way). I want to serve You with all that I am, with all of my varied interests.
