Seasons of your life

  • The last couple of weeks I didn’t get a blog post up.  As some of you know we are in the process of opening our 3rd Culvers in AZ.  We had our grand opening last week and we exceeded our expectations.  As I am working crazy hours and people ask how do you do it, I am reminded that we all go through various seasons of our lives.  There are times when work comes first and there are times when family comes first.  I am very thankful that my family understands what it really takes to get a new store open and how much they support me along the way.  It may be a couple of months of crazy but that pace doesn’t last forever.  As Dave Ramsey says, “you have to live like no one else so later in life you can live like no one else.”  This is what always drives me to do better and achieve as much as I can, trying to build a better life and change my family tree along the way.  I always have felt that work life balance is misunderstood.  I believe that you need to give 100% focus and attention to the main task at hand.  The key is that even if you spend 80 hours at work and only 20 hours at home awake during the week make those hours at both places count.  Be intentional and give 100% in both places.  When you get to the season of your life when you are able to spend more time with your friends and family make those count as much as possible.  I heard a comment the other day that we all have 168 hours in a week and we either invest those hours by being intentional and doing something important or we spend or waste those hours on tasks that have no real significance.  Ask yourself over the next couple of days if you are investing your time or spending your time.  Thank you to everyone who helps me invest my time on a daily basis to become a better version of myself!
