Have you noticed that RIGHT NOW everyone seems to be so busy. No matter who you ask it’s the same answer. Oh God we’re up the walls, things are crazy, there’s never a quiet time. Now I suppose in the greater scheme of things that’s fantastic. Sure isn’t that what we all want….to be busy.

 

The average person today seems to be working about 10 hours daily, certainly those who run their own businesses. If you’re reading this you are probably shouting 10 hours…I Wish!! Yes life is just so so busy and everyone works so so hard.

 

A lot of us sleep also. You know that time when you jump into a bed and try to shut your eyes and forget about everything for at least the next 8 hours. Ok I hear you shouting again….hah…8 hours…I Wish!! By the way if that kind of time frame sounds familiar it means you have a maximum of 6 hours left to do “stuff”. Stuff like…eat…relax…play with your children…go to shows or concerts or the cinema with your better half…climb a mountain or jump in a lake (that sounds like a song I know!!)  You get what I mean don’t you….Life today is non-stop, in fact it is often frantic.

 

So here’s a question for you. Have you ever stopped for a little while and asked yourself why is life like this? What is the end game or do you have an end game and should there even be an end game? What are you working towards? Surely ALL this effort you are putting in is for a reason, a purpose, a time when it will all be done and you can just kick back and CHILL and finally enjoy the fruits of your labour.

 

A huge part of the job we do in Metis Ireland is to get you guys to give what I have outlined some thought. Why do you do what you do? What is the purpose? Who are you doing this for? Is it all about the money? Will I have enough money or is the fear of the answer to this question causing me to keep going and going? Am I enjoying my life because you DO KNOW you only have ONE! Yes folks in case you missed that I’m going to say it again. You are only here once and I reckon you should have a bash at enjoying it. The one thing everyone needs to do from time to time is STOP! STOP and take stock of what you are doing. Ask yourself the hard questions and seek the answers so that you can live the life you WANT to live and not be a slave to the system.

 

I will deal with this again in a later blog but if you want some structure to the “mayhem” that can be life go no further than dropping us an email or a call and book some “me” time for a chat. Now that will be time well spent!
