30 Days To Your Best Year Ever – Day 1 – January 1st 2018

30 days to your best year ever? That's right!

To kick things off for January 1st, I would like to encourage you to make a commitment this year to spend more time, not less time, with your loved ones, with the people who are most important to you, and those would be your family members. 

I know a lot of people in the sales industry spend a lot of time traveling. Same with sales coaches and trainers. 

Many of you are on the road hundreds of days every single year. Here's what I'd like you to think about. 

You're spending hours, days, even months helping other people to develop, to perform better, to achieve their goals. 

But when you think about the balance between helping other people, your customers and the people who work for your customers, and helping your own family members, that could be your spouse, your children, your parents; how much time, relatively speaking, with those people who are the most important in your life in comparison to the time you spend with people, who in many cases, are more or less acquaintances. They're not even necessarily really close friends of yours. 

If you find that you're spending a lot of time away from your family, traveling in order to serve customers, help customers, and that the time your spending with your family and loved ones is much less in comparison, do you think that's reasonable?

Do you think you would refer to that as having balance in your life? 

Would it make sense to be spending more time with the people who are really of most value, the most important, the most precious to you?

Or does it make sense to be spending so much of your time with other people, away from your home, your family members, and your children if you have children?  

Only you can answer those questions. I know what the answer is for me, but I'd like to encourage you to think about that. 

If you're a sales coach/trainer, how much time are you spending traveling all over the world to serve your customers in comparison to the time you actually spend with your family members?

There's warning here too!

A lot of people say it doesn't matter how much time you spend with your kids or your spouse or your loved ones, it's the quality of the time. 

That's not true.

In fact, that's just an excuse to help soothe the consciences of those people who do travel too much and are away from their families too much. And here's why.

One thing that you can never schedule is "spontaneity." 

In order to enjoy those spontaneous moments with your love ones, with your children, that create memories that will last a lifetime, you need to be around because spontaneity, but it's very meaning, is something that's unplanned; it just happens. 

When you're away, spending too much time on the road, traveling, away from your family, you miss all kinds of the spontaneous moments that make life really worth living. 

I really hope you'll make a commitment to spending more time with the people who are most important to you in your life.
