You’re in Your Twenties, Working, Married, & A Parent - What Comes First?
Your work will always be there, but those around you won’t always be.
When I (Dave) asked for a person in their twenties to share a lesson about exercising Selflessness as a young professional, I honestly didn’t expect a lesson about living our lives well at home. But in just a few sentences, Skyler Hefley shares just that.
As young professionals, we take on large workloads to impress leadership and expedite our career growth. I did, but I quickly realized my passion for work was both a gift and a curse. Creating boundaries for a healthy work-life balance has allowed me more opportunities and time to be selfless, which has benefited my wife, daughter, and my mental health. It's not easy to do. We always want to do and accomplish more, but know your career will always be there, but those around you won't always be. Be selfless.
Skyler makes a great point. The world always pushes us towards MORE.
● Do MORE.
● Get MORE.
● Spend MORE.
