Have you realized as an adult, possibly even a spouse or a parent by now - along with running your own home and business - that you were never taught the skills you needed to succeed in each of these areas, let alone how to juggle all that?
Successful Adulting Areas
Are you sensing your own personal care could use attention? Are organizational skills challenging your personal and business life? Are lapses in communication skills showing some rough edges? Then, there are some questions to be asked such as, how well are you balancing or juggling your personal time?
Often, life just seems to crash in on us and all we want to do is curl up in a fetal position full of stress. Fortunately, there is more support as we recognize and admit we could use help. But it costs investing time in ourselves.
What Did Your Parents Teach You?
Think about what you were taught. Most likely it was what they were taught by their parents and went even farther back generationally. For instance, you may have learned to cut the turkey’s tail off before roasting and it comes out years later that your great grandma did that because the pan she had was too small. The tail had to be cut off so that is what she taught her daughter to do and so on.
Yesterday and Now
As a grandmother today, I am learning about new vegetables to prepare and eat that never graced a table I sat down to. I never learned how to grow them, let alone pronounce them. And the list goes on. Disposable diapers were new to my generation. We were taught to wait to potty train until the child was ready. Now I learn that we were conditioned to keep buying diapers much longer than needed. Pediatricians now recommend starting potty training at 18 months. The same goes with feeding a baby. Teaching baby self-feeding blew me away. My grandson was served pieces of fruit and vegetables and chicken well before I could believe it. I served mashed food, that I prepared, not store-bought in bottles, one spoon at a time while he sat in a highchair. My little grandson eats all varieties of food beautifully by himself. The changes blow my mind! We won’t even go into the plethora of new items at baby showers that are now needed for raising a baby.
Now, What Do I Do?
Today there are so many business coaches, speaking coaches, sales coaches, and self-help books. There are endless resources available to succeed in targeting contentment in life and profit in business.
I recommend you D.E.C.I.D.E.
