Balance Is Bullsh*t: How to Successfully INTEGRATE Work & Life:
I hope that you enjoyed that conversation. Here are my 3 insights for thriving:
- It stood out to me that once Joshua showed his vulnerability and his struggle to his buddies, he felt a sense of relief as though a weight had been lifted off of him. I think that probably many of us can relate as we’ve probably all carried a similar weight: pretending to be one thing or that everything is fine when maybe things really aren’t fine.
- I loved how Joshua framed it when he said that if the first thing we do in the morning is to look at our phone and email, text messages or SM what we are really saying is that the outside world is more important that where we are right now.
- He didn’t say it this way, but when we are showing up on LI or anywhere in our life for that matter, Just Be You. That’s been one of my favorite expressions for a long, long time. When I used to do leadership retreats for HS students, one of the things that I’d always say was to Be You, Be great. We can’t really be great at being something that we’re not.
