The Real Reason You Can’t Stop Overcommitting (and what to do about it)

Posted on April 4th, 2023

Many leaders today “know” the importance of a slowed-down spirituality.

So why do so many continue to feel overloaded and over scheduled, often working 3 jobs, taking on new side hustles, and remain driven by the fear of missing out? Why can’t we stop overcommitting?

Listen, I know this struggle firsthand. And I’ve found that it goes deeper than knowing intellectually and theologically the right thing to do.

We know many things. We know we need to slow down. We know about Sabbath and Daily Offices. We know we need silence and solitude. We know we need margin and spaciousness in our calendar.

But if we want to experience breakthrough, we must get to our root systems so we can live in freedom.

On today’s podcast, I tackle this question head-on in two parts:

  1. How do you break free from the roots of overcommitment inside yourself?
  2. How do you help others break free from overcommitment as you lead them?

This is an important one. I pray that as you listen, you begin to experience a newfound freedom in Christ.
