3 Keys to Living With Balance and Leading With Impact.

I’ll be honest, I haven’t always got this one right. It took me a few years to structure my life in a way that would help me…

1. Love God more
2. Love my wife better
3. Lead my kids intentionally
4. Take care of my body and mind better

7. Give my time and money more consistently
8. Just simply lead an all around better life.

We place value on those who are at every single meeting and are always there whenever they are needed. Although this may seem like a great quality, this type of tendency will lead to the consequences listed above. These people will feel overwhelmed, burnt out and spread too thin. Let’s talk about something that is much more effective, the way of the essentialist.

Marriage & Family 5. Other self development You're probably wondering just how productive this can be...
