Episode 137||137: Don’t Sacrifice Your Family For Your Business | John Lamerton

Have you ever sacrificed your family time, your health, or your spiritual life, for your career?

Today you’re going to hear about someone who fell into that trap: John Lamerton thought that getting everything he wanted required adding more things into his world, and as a result he ended up working 100 hours a week and sacrificing time with his family – until he got a massive wake-up call in the form of a newborn son.

You’re going to discover what led to John’s mindset shift, and how subtracting, simplifying, and focusing allowed him to go from working 100-hour weeks to 25-hour weeks – all while making more money, experiencing less stress, and spending more time with his family.

And are you willing to block out time on your calendar to figure it out – possibly even saying NO to something less important in the process?||Our biggest takeaway from this episode is doing less – not more.Sometimes, the things you like doing, and even the things that make you feel productive (or maybe just busy), aren’t the things that are going to make you effective – and they detract from the ONE thing that actually matters most.What can you do, today, to get more clarity on the things that you’re currently saying yes to that you should consider saying no to?
