Why you should say yes…
These days we all talk about how BUSY our lives are… but have you ever stopped, and asked yourself WHAT exactly you’re so busy with?
A lot of us are busy with work, meetings, “important stuff”. I almost want to call it busyness instead of business!
How many times do you make time for extra work, answering an extra call or email, staying an extra 15 minutes to finish off that oh-so-important meeting?
Why do we do this? Is it for that “hummm or buzzzz” kick you get out of it?
What if you loose that humm, that buzz, that kick? If you take your work or business out of the picture completely, WHO are you?
Now let me ask you this. When last did you make extra time (even if it’s just 15 minutes) to play with your kids, to have coffee with your friends, to phone your mom, to walk the dog, to sit down and really talk to your spouse?
We need to make time for WORK, yes, but also for PLAY.
I want to challenge you. For the next month, not even year, try to say “YES” every time your child asks you to play and see what will happen!
Talking about taking that extra 15 minutes… do yourself a favour and watch this TED Talk – this lady, Shonda Rhimes, has a point and we all need to hear it!
