A couple of weeks ago, I had an impactful conversation with Author Curt Steinhorst about his new book Can I Have Your Attention*. The focus of that interview was all about how distraction affects our work and home lives.
That interview with Curt really hit home for me. I think it’s because Curt and I are in a very similar spot in life. We’re both busy with our work, but we also want to be fun-loving Dads and a supportive husbands. Focus is required to be successful in all of these areas.
I’m all about improvement and action. I’ve outlined 7 things that I’m working to improve following my conversation with Curt. These action steps will help me enhance both my work and home life.
Distraction can come in all different forms. It can be from unnecessary chit-chat with your colleagues at work, smart phone notifications or even being the “always on” parent. The constant challenge of blocking out the “noise” and focusing on the most important task can sometimes feel impossible.
Today, we’re going to conquer distraction together. The goal for today’s episode is to help you win back your time, your attention and your focus.
We have reached a true milestone today my friends. Episode 50! FIVE-ZERO! That means for the last 50 weeks, this podcast has been focused on helping you and your family win with money.
Marriage is a beautiful thing. You get a best friend for life that loves you, laughs at your bad jokes and tells you when you have one of those stray hairs in your nose.
If you’re like me, your relaxation and decompression time comes with reading a good book. It is an excellent way to relieve stress, work your brain and learn something new.
We all have individual passions in our lives. Sometimes our interests don’t always gel with our spouse’s interests.
You might be really into brewing beer as a hobby, but your wife … not so much. She prefers photography. It’s all good though. Both of you respect each other, you do your own thing and you’re happy.
When it comes to our finances in marriage, that can be a whole different story. This is an area where teamwork, collaboration and partnership is required to be truly successful. Going off and “doing your own thing” when your money, future and retirement are at stake can be a recipe for disaster.
