Susan gave us some wonderful insight about Self versus Others, which is a different way to look at the Work / Life balance model. We have to spend time on our Self to feel energized, motivated and healthy so that we can create capacity for others. Our time spent with Others creates a feeling of satisfaction, sense of purpose and fulfillment, but we have to have the energy for that time. We should consider saying yes to a “Good Should” if it will make a long-term difference, is something only we can do, and is important to our personal priorities. Everyone asked a lot of questions and we had a great lunch-time discussion.
