This week, as for so many of us, has been one filled with a lot to get done. We wake up in the morning and go, go, go, with no down time, and before we know it, it is time for bed. I hear so many people say, “I need more time in the day!” or “There just isn’t enough hours to get everything done!” Guess what? I am one of those!
The truth is, do we really need more time in the day or more hours? I don’t think so! It is all about priorities.
I had to drive this week to Detroit to get a new passport expedited (sometime I’ll share why I had to do this). For those of you that know me, I HATE DRIVING! If I can figure a way to fly there, I am going to do it. I would even fly across town if I could. But, nonetheless, I had to drive. So, I asked a friend of mine if he wanted to go with me. I thought it would be some time for us to catch-up and just chill. Oh, was I wrong! I’m not sure what you believe in; but, I know this was meant to be and orchestrated from on high.
In the 24 hours we were gone, I learned more about him and his family, and an incredible journey they have been on together. The truly amazing thing is THIS is the same journey I have been starting out on. The journey of bio-hacking. Yep, bio-hacking. I will explain more about this in another blog. It was so cool to hear his story and to know the commitment I was making to myself could really be done.
I am grateful for those 24 hours; but most important, I am grateful for the people over the past few weeks who have been put into my life.
What I Learned And What You Can Learn…
What I have learned is to make space for these moments of gratitude. This goes back to my story about time and do we need more of it. As I said above, I don’t think so. I think what we need is a shift in priorities in our life. And believe me, I am preaching to the choir as I write this. We allow technology, activities, and this and that to fill our days. Just yesterday, I took the time to go out with my son and spend time in the grass letting him play on the trampoline. It was amazing! That 30-minutes was better spent with him than doing anything else.
What you can learn is The POWER OF YES to YOURSELF! That’s what I am challenging you to do today. It is a different mindset. It leads to a different culture. And I really believe you will be a better person and leader in your day-to-day life. Take some time and de-clutter your time! Find space to take care of yourself because you will be a better person in the end!
