Put Your Oxygen Mask on First

I was talking to a client last week who commented, “I constantly preach the importance of self-care, but I’m terrible at doing it myself.” She’s not the only one.

It’s something I work on with my clients a lot.  It’s not always easy to do, but it’s hugely important.

You cannot do your best work or be of service to others or accomplish what you want in this world if you’re constantly living on the edge.

Sure, you might be able to get more done in the short-term, but it’s the long-term that matters more.

For all the same reasons the airlines instruct you to put on your oxygen mask before tending to your children, taking care of yourself is in the best interests of your organization, clients, family, friends and anyone else’s life you touch.

You’re no good to anyone if you fall apart.
