How Do We Do It? 🤷‍♂️

In Blog, Hustle Podcast by Eric Byrnes

No matter what we do in life, we constantly wrestle with the Work vs. Play vs. Family decision… 

Most of us obviously have to work to support the family and there is a mandatory time requirement that we must put in to accomplish that. The same is true with the amount of play time we must put in to maintain our physical health, and of course, the amount of family/friend time we must invest to maintain and develop relationships… 

Then, we all come to the point where work/play/family becomes optional, and we have major decisions to make as to how to spend our time…

Keep working to reap the potential rewards that accompany a relentless work ethic, focus on building our physical health which enhances every other aspect of our lives, or spend more QUALITY time with the fam.

Just like work, in order to maintain a functional family & friend relationships as well as our physical health, there is a certain amount of time we must commit to basic DEVELOPMENT… 

Once we take care of what we believe to be mandatory time commitments on all ends, we are always left with a difficult decision as to how to spend what I would consider “shared time.” 

In order to answer this, we must understand that it has been proven that relationships are dependent not on the amount of time that people spend together, but rather the quality of time that is spent together… As a matter of fact, the exact same goes for our workouts. 

Knowing this, whatever we decide to do, we know that unless we are completely present, whatever we are doing will end up being a complete and total waste of time… 

So what’s the best way to juggle these 3 LIFE VITALS? 🤷‍♂️

It’s actually pretty simple… 

If we have a free 3 hour window, we are much better off devoting an hour of ENGAGED work, an hour of ENGAGED family/friend relationship building, and an hour of deliberately ENGAGED workout time as opposed to 3 hours of non-present, half-hearted, sloppy sessions that result in absolutely f*cking NOTHING… 

If we are NEVER fully present, we will NEVER get the results we want or properly develop our relationships the way we should.

Bottom line: No matter what we do, when we do it, or where we do it, none of it will be worth a shit unless we focus on HOW WE DO IT. 👊
