On New Year’s Eve I recalled some wisdom I learned from an influential healthcare leader. The lesson is that we spend roughly one-third of our lives in bed, one-third of our lives at work and one-third of our lives with our family. While we don’t have total control over our family members, we can buy a great mattress and pursue a career we love.
Taking action where I have some control in my life is an obvious first step. Added to this lesson, my goal this year is to increase my awareness of the dynamics in areas that I have little control yet have an opportunity to influence in constructive ways.
