Work-life balance

Re-Imagining Success

Re-Imagining Success

Last week, I asked you to consider committing to yourself as the vibe for 2019. How is that coming along?

One of the things that I said I would commit to is incorporating some balance in my life. By nature, I am a workhorse; I don’t know how not to work. Which in turn makes all my conversations work-ish. Even when I am trying to have fun, it somehow comes back to work. My idea of fun these days is attending a good networking event. Just the other day, I was hanging out with one of my favorite people. They said “Minda please stop talking about work while we are at the museum.” I was embarrassed to be called out, but I must admit, I didn’t even realize I was doing it.

Life's Hamster Wheel

Life's Hamster Wheel

Posted up in my office are the following words: Hopeful, Fun, Relentless, Committed, Successful, and Confident

Every time I look up from my computer, I see these six words staring me in the face. On days when I don’t feel confident, these words speak life to me. On days that don't seem successful, these words breathe life into me. 

What words, phrases, or quotes breath life into you? 

Oftentimes, we are grinding and hustling so hard that we can feel trapped in life's perpetual "hamster wheel." That wheel where we can’t stop, won’t "stop 'til you get enough," or do enough. That wheel makes us run so fast because we want to prove all the haters wrong.
