NATIONAL I AM IN CONTROL DAY – March 30

NATIONAL I AM IN CONTROL DAY

National I Am In Control Day is observed each year on March 30th.  Secretary of State, Alexander Haig’s words “I am in control here” have never been forgotten:  ”In 1981, following the March 30 assassination attempt on Reagan, Haig asserted before reporters “I am in control here” as a result of Reagan’s hospitalization, indicating that, while President Reagan had not “transfer[red] the helm”, Haig was in fact directing White House Crisis Management until Vice President Bush arrived in Washington to assume that role.” (Wikipedia)

Sources believe that this was the beginning of National I Am In Control Day.  This day has evolved and taken on a different context.  It is a day to get things under control in your life on a day to day basis.

There are ways to help the “out of control” feeling.  One way to begin is to take a break for a minute and evaluate your situations.
Then you may want to:

  • Start using a daily planner
  • De-clutter
  • Make lists
  • Tackle one project at a time
  • Learn organizational skills
  • Ask for help
  • Talk with someone
  • Feel confident with your decisions

On National I Am In Control Day,  begin the steps that are needed for you to feel that you are in control of the things, that one can be, in your life.
