During specific times in my life, I learned and have been reminded of a universal truth that’s changed who I am.
That truth is, I better be all in or go home and rest up. There’s no point in playing the game if I can’t be all in right now.
Doing the best business requires being fully present, emotionally engaged and highly self-aware. Business is based on relationships. In order to make an impact on another person, I have to be able to articulate what I’m bringing to the table. And I have to bring it with intention and determination.
When I find myself half-assing my life, teetering between indifference and purgatory, I back off and regroup.
I have really enjoyed my life since adopting this philosophy. I gave myself permission to not be ready all the time, that resting is okay. On the flip side, I can be over the top with my engagement and energy level when I have the opportunity, that’s okay too.
Try it out for a couple weeks and see if you notice a difference.
