A few days ago, I was waffling on whether or not to take on some work a prospect wants us to handle.
While the work would be exciting, the day-to-day contact has already been high-maintenance. The budget would be game-changing, but the quality of life for my team and me would be almost nil.
You can see why I kept going back and forth.
And then I saw a livestream my friend Kevin Kermes hosted for his community.
He started it off by saying, “If it’s not a heck yes, it’s a no.”
Couple that with the advice I’d give any of my coaching clients and I knew it was time to stop waffling and take action.
I’ve gotten a bit philosophical on you the past few weeks, but I believe we’re at a time in our lives—because of everything we’ve experienced since last March—that we have the opportunity to reset our priorities and refuse to get back on the hamster wheel of the pre-pandemic.
I have a girlfriend who said to me, “Can you believe we used to get on planes every week and run ourselves ragged? Never doing that again.”
Nope, me either.
An article in Entrepreneur magazine talks about what’s missing from the conversation about work-life balance.
And that is what we discuss on this week’s Spin Sucks Podcast episode.
