The other day I was preparing for one of our Mastery Series sessions for our Coaches and I was reflecting on the importance of dynamically balancing our Big 3 priorities in our lives.
Of course, our Big 3 is our Energy + Work + Love.
And, of course, those Big 3 will NEVER (!) be perfectly in balance. In fact, there’s no such thing as “static” balance while we’re alive.
We can wait for perfect balance when we’re 6-feet under. 😲
Until then, we’d be wise to remember that the process of balancing is a DYNAMIC one, much more like walking across (Osho’s) tightrope (a little too far to the right… a little too far to the left… repeat) than it is like standing still in one spot.
I absolutely love Cal Newport’s book called So Good They Can’t Ignore You. I think that’s the PERFECT way to capture our guiding star Work wise.
Master your craft and get SO GOOD THEY CAN’T IGNORE YOU!
👆 LOVE. THAT.
I thought to myself, what about Energy and Love wise? 🤔
Of course, those are AT LEAST as important as the Work, eh?
Then it hit me…
Let’s Be So ENERGIZED They Can FEEL Us.
(I often tell our Coaches that THEY are their #1 assets—which is true whether they’re a Coach or a CEO or a mom. And, we want their PRESENCE to be such a clear demonstration of the values they live that people naturally want to go to them for Wisdom.)
Let’s Be So AWESOME They ADORE Us.
Imagine giving the craft that is our Energy the same attention we give our Work. How would you show up?
Imagine giving the craft that is our parenting and/or marriage the same attention we give our Work. How would you show up?
That’s a humbling, inspiring standard for me.
And, that’s Today’s +1.
Let’s be so ENERGIZED They Can FEEL Us.
