Valentines Day – A Good Time To Reflect

As a business coach I know how hard my clients work.  Many start working early in the day, work hard all day, stay late or take work home with them, and finally crash at the end of a late night.

When we talk about what they are working so hard for, they often tell me to provide for their families.  When we talk about their dream for retirement it includes spending more time with family.  Stop – do they have to wait that long?

Of course we hope that our families will be there when we have all the time in the world to spend with them.  Remember Harry Chapin’s song Cats In The Cradle?  Re-read the lyrics here

It’s Valentines’ Day. Reflect.  Reprioritize.  See what changes you can make in your business today so that you don’t miss out on spending time with those that are important to you.

Share your ideas below.  I look forward to reading them.                            Holly Hanson
