I love a women’s conference! There’s nothing quite like being with a group of friends, learning something new and having time just to soak it all in.
As I see it, there’s only one down side to a conference; it’s usually just too much information to process. The saying “like drinking water from a fire hose” is completely applicable.
She Speaks definitely falls in this category, so how can you come away without getting a case of overload shutdown? You know what I mean. It’s that phenomenon when you can’t even begin to think of where to start, so you just never get started at all. It’s easy to leave with big dreams and high hopes and then sink into discouragement when the rush of the weekend is over. Pursuing the dream starts to look too complicated or too far away.
Here’s a simple, practical tip to help avoid this pitfall. Make an Action Item List during the conference. In each breakout session, listen for 1 or 2 actions that you want to take based on what you’ve learned. On a separate piece of paper, compile these actions into a list.
Once you get home, prayerfully narrow the list if you need to and prioritize the items. Then you can tackle one action at a time. (And I’m a girl who LOVES to check things off a list. Don’t forget the checks!) Dreams come true one step at a time.
