The National I Am in Control Day is celebrated every year on the 30th of March. This day originated on the very day in the year 1981 when the then Secretary of State – Alexander Haig made the statement “I am in control here” in response to an interview regarding the assassination bid on President Ronald Regan in which he was wounded. So this is the day to get in the grip on you. This is the day to put your foot down and take control of your life. Show people that you are not a mess.
The out-of-control feeling happens to everyone at least sometime in life. Your work and home get so tangled that you feel you are on the edge. There may be days on end when everything seems to be malfunctioning – the printer is out of paper, the clocks are down without batteries, the kids have messed up the carpet with glue and glitter and so on. On March 30th, take the time off to set all such mess right. Get rid of all the clutter. Tell everyone to behave. Work it out with your family on how to make things run more efficiently and get them to stick to the plan.
