I am in Control Day.........

I am in Control Day.........

This day will always be on March 30th.  Why?

Control FreakOn March 30, 1981, President Ronald Reagan was wounded in an assassination attempt.  Lots of confusion prevailed.  In the White House, then Secretary of State Alexander Haig was taken a little out of context when he said "I am in control here".   Instead of focusing upon the entire statement, people and the press focused upon these few words.  Political uproar eventually led to his resignation.  The political junkies in the room may not remember the day but they will remember the statement by the Secretary of State.

On that day, I am in Control Day was born.

As we all know history sometimes fades with time.  Alexander Haig's statement was all but forgotten.  Meanwhile, this special day continued on, and evolved.  People would come to think about this day in a different context.  They would personalize it into a day to get their life in control. In that sense, today is definitely a call to action.  "I am in Control Day" is your chance to get things in order and under control.  Are you ready?

Most likely, the first step is to take a deep breath and relax.  Now, assess the situation, and then get things under control.  Once you have accomplished this today, you can work on staying in control tomorrow and the next day and the next day and……..well you get the picture.

Important Note:  YOU don't want to forget the real roots of I Am in Control Day, as spoken by Secretary of State Alexander Haig in 1981.

Rebecca,

In this business it is easy to lose control of things and ourselves.

Don, you could have fooled me!  Yesterday I felt totally out of control, and if only I'd read this post then, I might have been inspeired to turn it around.  Today is going to be even crazier.
