BYP 261: Your Three Best Days and A Kitchen Table Conversation With My Parents
An exercise that I like to do with people in my mastermind and with myself every couple of years is to imagine my three best days. I realized a while back how many of us live with our heads down. We get so caught up in our work that we lose sight of why we’re even doing it. The three best days exercise helps me get recentered on what’s important. Once I realize what my best days are, I can create a life that allows for more of them. In this episode, I’m sharing with all of you one of my best days. It includes having conversations with my parents around the dining room table. Having the margin to spend more time with family is one of the best things about having this business. I hope our conversation provides value for you and gives you a glimpse of my life outside of work.
