Turn, Turn, Turn
In reality life happens and death happens. As we look forward, I'm excited about the opportunities we have to make a difference in our families, our communities and our businesses. Let's make the most out of our lives! Coming up are some industry events that are a great way to start off the year.
A personal goal for me in 2013 is to focus on more effective time management and being more active physically. I want to take better care of myself. We are doing a 5K Color Run, which for me with my fused ankle will be a walk, but it's a good thing anyway. They spray you with color throughout the event, which should be pretty fun.
Another thing I'm committed to is taking more time off to enjoy life. While I love what I do, the whole workaholic thing is not healthy. There needs to be a work life balance that makes sense. To that end, I am privileged to play a role in the Sail to Success education cruise facilitated by my good friend Ron Baron. Our inaugural cruise to the Bahamas in 2012 was awesome as shown in this short video clip. In the video, Ron talks about the concept that to be more successful you need to work less! We are currently putting together a Caribbean cruise in September. For more information and to know when the early booking pricing is available click here.
In wrapping up this Rant, a tune that has been floating around in my head recently is the classic song "Turn, Turn, Turn (To Everything There Is a Season)." The song is adapted from the book of Ecclesiastes (3:1) by Pete Seeger in 1959. In 1965 The Byrds recording of it went to #1 on the Billboard 100. With everything that's going on these days, it's a relevant today as it was in the 60's. If it's of interest, here's pictorial music video of it and the words are below.
