Extra Hour question provides clue to Work/Life Pursuit

Extra Hour question provides clue to Work/Life Pursuit

Another fun Baby & Toddler Expo at Cardinal Health!

The question at the Work/Life Pursuit booth was “What would you do with an Extra Hour?” 

Why do I ask the “Extra Hour” question?

The answer gives you a clue to what’s missing in your work/life blend, your pain point or stress factor.

  • Some said, “Spend more time with their children” – even though they spend every minute they can with their children.  Could this be stress from guilt feelings?
  • Some said, “Exercise” or “Sleep” – indicative of a need to take care of themselves.
  • Others opted for relaxing, time on their own, housework or home projects – looking for that quality of life missing in their lives.

In my book, I share a 4 step process to determine what roles you want in your life, your vision for these roles and how to plan your week to live your vision.  I can’t give you an “Extra Hour,” but I promise you a process that’s easy to follow, simple to apply and yet life changing.

Take the first step today by scheduling a bite size chunk of your “Extra Hour” – a 15 min activity on a specific date and time.  I get up 15 min earlier and jog around the block.  Now you’re on your way to regain control of where your life is heading.
