OWN YOUR LIFE!
Live with Intention and Attention.
The gentleman across from me is one of the most successful men I know. He is my friend and mentor and I respect him greatly. We were enjoying lunch at his favorite Mexican Restaurant discussing business when his phone rang. It was his wife. Without hesitation he said, “Family first!”, and answered the call.
It seems like a small thing, but I was impacted deeply by his conviction to have a clear sense of order in his life. This simple gesture told me volumes about his character and what he values. I became passionate about the balance of family and work. How can you be wildly successful at both without compromising one or the other? Is it possible? Work and Life does not have to be a separate entity. Your work and business should be an extension of your life and what you value.
Lesa and I have been married thirty-two years and have two extraordinary boys. We live in Thompsons Station, TN with our two English Mastiffs, Gus and Jones.
Owning your life and work requires setting priorities and having the conviction to follow through regardless of the circumstances.
