Become A Lifer

It’s impossible to split up “Professional Life” and “Personal life”

These aren’t separate entities.

There is just Life.

When we’re working we may be weighed down by family trauma.

When we’re with a friend we may be thinking about a work project.

When we’re tired we may have to muster up the energy to go to the gym knowing we have work to do after.

We may need to stop working on a project to attend our kids’ game.

When we are looking at buying a house, moving, traveling, etc it can be impacted by our work and the financial rewards from that work.

It all overlaps and intertwines into a messy unrelenting knot that can’t be undone.

Recognizing that should put us at ease. We don’t have to fake it or try to make it all work perfectly into this “work-life balance” box.

It’s nonsense. There is just balance.

We are balancing work, kids, friends, romantic partners, hobbies, and tragedy and triumph.

It’s randomness every day.

We have to stop putting pressure on ourselves to be perfect. It doesn’t exist.

Map out your day, figure out what works for you, and take a deep breath.

Balance comes with accepting all the challenges we have not ignoring them.

Effortless Energy

Our effort is the telltale sign that we care.

When we put the effort, into anything, it proves that we are committed to this thing.

This purpose, this relationship, this mindset, this pursuit of happiness.

If we are questioning whether we care, all we have to do is look at our effort.

It tells us everything we need to know about who or what we prioritize in our life.

Because the most important things become effortless to put our energy into.

Be On Your Game

Even the most accomplished athletes in the world stumble, drop passes, hit an errant tee shot, and look foolish from time to time.

We can’t expect to always “be on”.

It’s normally when our ego gets the best of us that the humble train rolls into the station.

Sure, we have moments of greatness but they shouldn’t be thought of as a given. We have to work and practice to keep our skills sharp and not get too cocky that we reached some pinnacle and are up there for good.

That’s never the case.

We have to be focused on continuing to do the little things. The blocking and tackling. The accessory work. The fundamentals. That keeps us fresh and in the “maintenance mode” to pull it out whenever we need it.

We can’t take a play off. We have to be on call and give each opportunity our best effort otherwise we’ll strike out badly. And not because we just failed with a great attempt but because we took our eye off the ball thinking we are already going to score.
