My kids actually enjoying exercise … ?

This morning my wife and I took our kids to workout with us a the Crossfit gym we visit.

Normally our kids complain at doing the slightest chore – let alone having them do a push up or other exercises.

But here's the amazing part – they love Crossfit!

There's a couple reasons I think this is – we get to do it as a group, they see mom and dad doing it, they get to use cool machines like the rowing machines you see above, and it's just something different!

I'm fascinated how by adding an element of FUN my kids want to do something they would otherwise HATE – exercising.

Here's what I'd have you consider today – where in your architecture firm have the lost the passion and fire that used to drive you?

Where are you doing activities that sap your energy instead of activities that give you energy?

When you get off work are you energized to spend time with your friends and family?

Or are you worn out and just want to sit on the couch and watch TV?

One key to avoiding burnout is to do the following exercise –

Take an inventory of the activities that you do on a daily basis.

Score them on a scale of 1 to 5 on whether they bring you energy or sap your energy.

Lastly, eliminate or delegate anything that doesn't score a 4 or higher.

Do what you love, and you'll never work a day in your life.

If you'd like a shortcut to eliminating the energy-sucking activities in your life, apply to enroll in the DREAM Practice Accelerator.

Ten firms are accepted with each cohort and our next cohort is coming up soon.

Carpe diem.
