“When the sun is shining I can do anything; no mountain is too high, no trouble too difficult to overcome.” – Wilma Rudolph

How to Have a Summer of Fun
Make a List
Ask yourself, what’s going to light me up this summer? If you have a partner or a friend that you like hanging out with, get them involved in creating a list together. Just make a quick list of what feels fun to do and other things you’ve wanted to do and haven’t made space for. After that, think about who you want to bring along with you. Who are those cool people you want to invite into your life to experience those fun things with you?
Schedule It All
It’s important to schedule and prioritize play on your calendar because it isn’t going to happen if it’s not on the calendar. When you have all these ideas that you think would be fun, you have to plan it out and talk to the people you want to be involved with. When you get the fun activities you want to do on the calendar, everyone will be on the same page, and you can start to really have that kind of life you want. If you’re not intentional with scheduling, it will never happen.
If you want to have more time, you have to do less stuff. If you think that you’re going to do everything that you usually do in your day, plus have another six to eight hours of play, it will not happen. So you have to figure out if there are any tasks you can offload that you don’t need to be doing. Be creative with finding someone who can help you clean or would be happy to take over any routine housework you need to do for a few months. To have the extra hours for play, you need to eliminate the routine tasks.

We all know great leaders take on a TON of responsibility. Hell, they can handle it. It’s what separates them from the rest of the herd.
But just because we can do something, doesn’t always mean we have to or even need to.
Otherwise, we end up working 80+ hours a week and wondering where life went.
Or we parent so hard, we neglect our own self-care.
Aren’t you fed up trying to juggle everything?
It’s easy to fixate solely on the needs of people around us or even our own blind ambitions.
But you can’t live that way for too long.
Life is a balancing act.
If done right, we feel fulfilled in our relationships, our personal needs, our financial life, and our spiritual pursuits.
If we get even a portion of it wrong, we end up overwhelmed, undernourished, and on the brink of breaking down.
That’s why we’re excited to teach you our strategies for maximizing joy and living life with a purpose in the Finding Your Balance Masterclass! 🎉
