TRIPLE III TIME: Finding & Developing a Modern Era Balance of Life

Did you ever wonder what a: How to Achieve a Balanced Life! Workshop agenda would look like today?  What would be the major topics of discussion? What would be the focus of breakout sessions? And what would be the workshop “take-aways” in oral or written form… that a year from now you would remember them?

Would you ever have thought the topics might include:

  • Around the clock TV-News-Sports
  • Mass Shootings Can Happen Anywhere
  • Virtual vs. Face Time Continuous Learning
  • Life After a Pandemic
  • Hateful Politics Unlimited
  • Shopping Locally in a Global World
  • Jobs/Careers/Earnings… What Can You Count On?

But then think a little more.  How could you address even one or all of these topics well in a cool, one-day, How to Achieve a Balanced Life! Workshop?

Well for those who tried to “skip-ahead” in this TRIPLE III TIME message to find the answer… guess what… no answer… just advice.

Grandparents(1)Sometimes you have to go back… to find the best way forward. My Grandma and Grandpa used to pass along a ton of great, thoughtful points of advice.   One I remember more today was: “You better know what you want most… because you only have so much time in this world.”  So maybe (with this advice in mind) a How to Achieve a Balanced Life! Workshop would NOT address any of the topics listed… but would instead talk about how you use your LIFE-TIME today… EVERYDAY.  The session could also discuss the notion that YOU have control over what you think about… what you do… and the value of each.  And finally, my Grandparents would want the workshop to require you to write down (not email) the TOP 10 life things you want most.  I think they would agree that if you had a good idea of what you want most… YOU could lead a classy How to Achieve a Balanced Life! workshop.

What do you think… could you??
