To follow up on my intention to create more positive focus points in my life, I have found two ways so far I’m making my work and money thoughts… lovelier.
My first step is to make a more defined line between work and life. Last year I was shocked to realize I was working 119 hours a week. Immediately after that revelation I instituted a new life intention for myself: no email on nights or weekends. From that point on I was really good about putting a ban on my inbox off hours.
Until the holiday season.
Because Jess LC is such a gift driven company, I decided to relax on my email ban to make sure I dealt with as much as possible before leaving for the holidays.
But I haven’t been back in the email restricted saddle as much as I’d like in 2012. Which has left me
thinking dwelling on work most hours of the day. So I’m getting back on the horse and asking you to come with me.
If you would like to join the Email Intervention for January – please comment on this post and share it with friends or co-workers. I explain the pledge in more detail in this post. Those that comment here will get four little emails from me throughout the pledge period which is January 23rd – February 3rd. But of course, I’ll be beginning my ban on email on evenings and weekends starting today at 5pm (feel free to join me today!).
I am unspeakably affluent –
rich with ideas, with resources, with love.
There’s so little I need to consume â€”
and infinite ways to contribute.
These mantras stopped me in my blog-reading tracks this afternoon on Alexandra Franzen’s recent post (discovered via Michelle yesterday). They are great ways for me to refocus when the costs for incorporating Jess LC, paying my last two quarters of 2011 tax estimates, and ordering new materials weighs me down.
So here’s to a relaxing, email free, positively focused weekend!
