I’m taking care of… ME! Give Yourself a Grant!
Here’s what I’m not good at: ME!
My make-up, is work. I work.
I love work. I love my company and our mission…and to me it’s not work.
But there’s a lot of it…every day of the week, every week of the month, every month of the year!
An area of improvement, that I have always had to improve in…is: ME!
Taking care of me! Relaxing…Playing…Enjoying Life Away From Work.
I always seem to be rolling from project to project, whether it be for my company, or a home project.
SO…I am challenging myself, and if you’re anything like me, I am challenging you…to give yourself a Grant!!
You work hard! You work long hours! You work to serve others! It’s easy to forget about YOU!
If you don’t stop and smell the roses (which I forget to do)…If you don’t stop and enjoy life away from work (which I do not do enough)…you are hurting one important person: YOU!
SO…give yourself a monthly Grant, that is only about you! Selfishly about YOU!
Buy a couple of good books! Buy 1 or 2 nice bottles of wine! Buy 50 $1 boxes of Hot Tamales or Milk Duds! Put it towards a massage or manicure! Put it towards that hobby you are neglecting! Don’t have a hobby to neglect (like me ?!!)…time to get a hobby to enjoy and put your grant towards!
If you’re buying what I am selling, then remember something: Your monthly grant is only to be for YOU! No one else!
People who enjoy life more…enjoy life more…AND become and stay more productive, have a better chance of being better managers or bosses, relax more, relieve more stress!
Sounds good to me! Sound good to you?
I am going to be the recipient of a monthly GRANT…intended only…for…ME!!
- Make it easy for people to do (and keep doing) business with you!
- Look up… and surprise someone!
