My mantra for 2017 has been maximize time and energy while minimizing effort and expenses. This can also be interpreted as work smarter, not harder. This message first came to me after my husband experienced a heart attack 12/2/16, and he recognized a short time later that it would be in his best interest to discontinue what he has done work-wise since graduating high school. I encouraged him to really feel into what he enjoyed and what he was capable of doing physically. Then, we assessed the changes that could be made to achieve it. I continue to remind him to maximize his time and energy (and also not to overdo it), while also minimizing his effort and the financial aspect associated with doing business.
I’ve offered this suggestion to my daughter as she prepares to graduate from college in less than a month and attain full-time employment. I gently conveyed this message to my son since he will be relocating to a new area and returning to college in the fall to begin his quest for his juris doctorate degree after graduating college 3 years ago with an industrial engineering degree.
I’ve applied this mantra to my own work. I’ve chosen to really assess what I do and how I do it. I’ve realized that when I consciously choose to invest my time and energy wisely in whatever it may be (people, places or things), including myself, the energetic investment tends to feel easy and the end result or outcome is often effortless.
What can you maximize and minimize in your own life?
