“Are you building your future or building your business?”
A well known health clinic tucked away in a thriving suburb of Las Vegas touts an unusual statistic…
For the past 20 years, 90% of their patients are men in the Financial Services industry.
Why such a concentration of similar clients?
The answer is symptom of a bigger problem for such a high pressure industry, and if left unchecked it could lead to a variety of negative consequences, both personally and professionally.
Here are 5 key ways to REFOCUS on your future while still building your business:
1. You are your best to others when you take care of YOU > Rest, Diet, Exercise, Social and even Spiritual are all essential.
Self care is not selfish. It’s essential.
2. Decide the parts of your life that get your time and prioritize.
The biggest offender is often our WORK bucket.
3. Know your limits.
Give to that point and then get selfish with your time and availability afterward.
Turn the electronics off at the right time.
Consume less toxic media.
4. YES, it’s OK to have BOUNDARIES and not take that business call over the weekend…at your daughter’s soccer game!
The right physical, relational and occupational boundaries are perfectly healthy.
We should actually celebrate them in others when we see them!
For most of us, this next point is a BIG one…
5. Seek a tight correlation between who you ARE and what you DO.
The closer these two things match, the greater your satisfaction and enjoyment will be in your 9-5 and your life overall.
The farther they are apart, the more tired, burned out and miserable you will be over the long run.
Be YOU – nothing more and nothing less.
Remember, only you can write the future you want.
It’s a trade…input now = output later!
