Work-Home Integration Program
Work obligations. Family obligations.
They intersect. They conflict. They ebb and flow.
And it’s really damn stressful sometimes.
I get it. I lived it. I still do.
But you know what? It’s not stressful anymore. And it no longer has to be for you, either!
Nicole has been instrumental in my growth and development. She introduced me to innovative ways of positioning myself in meaningful ways and in various capacities in the industry. Nicole continued to motivate me through focus and accountability to stay on task when considering my bigger goals in life. She’s a motivator and a true visionary.
I used to feel a considerable degree of overwhelming stress. I felt as though my husband needed 30% of the pie that was me, my child needed 30%, my job needed 30%, my friends needed 30%, my parents needed 30%… Yes, that adds up to waaay more than 100%. But that’s how I felt.
And there was no piece of pie for me.
I was desperately struggling to carve out what felt like even 1% of the pie for myself. Resentment bubbled up when I gave up my piece of the pie for something or someone else.
I tried so hard to follow the advice I read everywhere – take care of yourself first so that you can take care of everything else.
And it never worked.
Until I considered: perhaps there is no pie.
THE (SELF) COACHING
I wondered if trying to constantly clamp down on all the overwhelm was having the opposite effect of what I wanted.
So I tried an experiment.
I decided to go all in with my marriage. ALL IN. Not just taking responsibility for “my half of it.” I no longer defined partnership as 50-50. I defined it as 100-100. I took responsibility for the ENTIRE marriage… without a little caveat that whispered, as long as he does the same.
And I saw everything absolutely transformed.
I tried it at work. Results were incredible! The outcomes I saw on the job were ground-breaking for me. The teamwork was no longer split up into component parts. There was ONE team where everyone on the team took FULL responsibility for it ALL. I had the team completely give up the idea that someone else should do their part. It was only ever about the 100% that we each individually brought to the table.
We exceeded our numbers. People grew and were promoted. Clients sang our praises. We landed more business.
What if… there is no pie? What if you do not need to split up your time, your attention, your love in the midst of overwhelm? What if you can bring 100% to the table EVERY TIME?
Sounds impossible? It’s not.
I was no longer doing more; I was accomplishing more. The hamster wheel I was on disappeared.
This is the secret to managing overwhelm: There is no limit to the positive things in life. Love, care, grace – even time, money, and attention – they only have limits when we believe that they do.
