OK, Bottom line, this question proved to be the litmus test for whether you and I are willing to take the time to rest, play, and restore when we need it.
Can you believe your business is working, when you are resting and taking time off?
How you answer this question will determine if you will stay in constant hustle mode vs learning to work in a rhythm. It will determine what you do when your brain is done at 5 but you want to or feel you should keep working. It will determine how you plan your calendar during the week.
How to get started?
Look at these 3 key areas, pick one and ask and answer the question for a week
There are 3 keys to resilience + questions to build on them:
1. Learning to lean into a healthy work and rest rhythm.
ASK OFTEN: What do I need, this week, right now? (rest, play, some time off, time with humans)
2. Creating a present focus and personal mindset practice.
ASK: What do I have control over? (focusing on what we DO have control over and letting the other go??)
3. Bring our unique talents to work often and integrate play into ALL that we do.
ASK and NOTICE: What lights you up? (what small rituals and routines light you up, notice when you drop them, bring them back)
Pick ONE and keep asking the one question and see what you create this week?
