Want a more stimulating, less anxious, more satisfying week?
Want to wake up Saturday morning feeling refreshed and content?
You remember contentment, don’t you?
We’ve gotten so busy we’ve managed to get our priorities out of whack again, but it didn’t happen overnight.
It crept up on us slowly and quietly.
The grind is a ninja, yo.
More and more, it seems we say ‘no’ by default to things in our family life.
“Sorry, I really don’t have time to take you to soccer practice. Mama can do it.”
“No, I really don’t have the energy to stay up and talk tonight. Can’t we just watch TV?”
“I wish I could, son, but daddy’s too busy right now.”
Stop me if you’ve heard those.
We find time for work, extra work, work-related community service, networking and busy work.
We say ‘yes’ by default to work stuff.
Switch the default boxes.
This week, try and find ways to say ‘yes’ to family stuff.
Family, extra family, family-related community service, netfamilying and busy family.
And turn on ‘no’ by default to work stuff.
Are you afraid they’ll fire you?
Do you really want to work for jerkfaces like that?
I’m going to go play with Will now.
