Recently I have been running team practices with everyone evaluating if they’re in their comfort, challenge, or panic zone. Listening to people talk, I have found that many are in the panic zone because they lack margin.
I’ve noticed people wait for vacation or some sort of getaway for margin. Build smaller margin as a discipline once a week. I’ve built margin straight from one of my passions – I love soccer. This week I watched the USA men’s soccer team which, unfortunately also added some stress into my life. Regardless, it’s a love to of mine to talk and play soccer. Two weeks ago I played soccer for the first time in a few months. Both of these things gave me more energy.
It was refreshing for me to get back to a love to of mine, even though I’m not competing anymore. What are your passions? Create margin this week from one of your passions.
