It’s hard to believe Thanksgiving is here. 2011 has been an incredibly busy year for Inspired Hygiene. We’re so thankful for all of the wonderful growth we’ve experienced this year and couldn’t be prouder of our private coaching clients and Mastermind members. We are incredibly thankful for your confidence in the Inspired Hygiene team! Without Stacy, Margo and Diane, what we’ve accomplished this year would not have been possible.
And then above all, we’re thankful for all our families. Without their support, we would not be able to do what we love so much…learn, teach and share…on the road and on the web. So, in this week of giving thanks, take time to “unplug” from work and focus on family. Scroll down to read about work-life balance…
We wish you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving.
The toughest day…
I recently read an article where a CEO was being interviewed about work-life balance. He said that one of the toughest days of his life was when he overheard his 5 year old son say, ‘I don’t think my daddy likes me very much. He’s always tired when I’m around and I always have to be quiet because he is working when he is on his cell phone.” That CEO learned quickly that he was investing more time in work than he was in his relationship with his son. And in the end, the people we love deserve the greatest gift we can give them: the respect and power of our attention.
Being fully present means carving out time when you are home with the family. What does this mean for you? It’s highly unlikely that your practice will cease to exist if you turn your phone off during family dinnertime or for 20 minutes while you’re driving your kids to school. You’ll get so much personal satisfaction out of those focused moments. Then, when it’s time to focus on work, you can be fully present there as well.
We’d love to hear from you about how you’ve made changes in your life to achieve work-life balance! Become a “fan” of our Facebook page and tell us your story. Here’s the link www.Facebook.com/InspiredHygiene
