Who is responsible for you?

I don't know about you but I had a lovely weekend! I spent a lot of time with really close friends enjoying the outdoors, going on Easter egg hunts, and having good conversations. It doesn't get much better than that, except if I got to keep some of the Easter eggs that I found instead of relinquishing them to the 6 year old that was my partner in crime. I thought it was going to be an even split of the plunder...little did I know I was going to get double crossed and she would take it all! The swindler :)

I think about little Theo and even though he is only two months old, everybody says time flies. In my experience coaching hundreds of people, one of the main reason they say that their health is important is for their family, to have the energy to play with their kids, and to be the parents and grandparents that they want to be. I want that too! My granddad, wore down his knees from playing too much basketball and volleyball, and I never got to practice or play with him growing up. I want something different for my kids and eventually grandkids. 

So my question for you today is, "Who is responsible for you?" You have scores of responsibilities, from managing people and teams, to managing finances and budgets, and even in some cases saving lives through your profession as a doctor or surgeon. That's a lot of responsibility! 

We've all heard the phrase, "You can't take care of other people unless you take care of yourself." You give so much to other people and sacrifice so much of your time and energy into others but who is responsible for you?

Time is an unforgiving master. No one wants to have their quality of life stripped from them by some chronic disease or to not be able to get down on the floor and play with their grandkids. 

So who is responsible for you? Who is responsible for your health? You're responsible for the health of your team and your business and your finances. What can you do today to be responsible for your health and invest in the quality of life that you want to have?
