Welcome to Episode 10 of Work You Love!

Today, I’m taking a question from Jodi about how to honor our own priorities and do what we need and want to in our lives, while also supporting the needs of others who rely on us.

Here’s my take on that:

The top three takeaways from this video are:

1. “Honoring your priorities” doesn’t mean you’re selfish and only focus on yourself.  To the contrary, it means you realize what gives your life meaning and commit to bringing those highest visions to life (and often, that’s being of service to others in ways that fulfill your Life Intentions).

2. If you’ve given everything up for others — and feel you have to do EVERYTHING for those around you — and have lost yourself in the process, you’re honoring the wrong priority.

3. Don’t mistake utter selflessness and depleting your mind, body and spirit for the sake of others as generosity or good parenting.

Here’s a tweetable for you:

Honoring your priorities means knowing what matters most to you in life and boldly living from that knowledge every day. @kathycaprino

  1. I am going to immediately seize your current rss as I can’t find the e-mail registration url or perhaps e-newsletter services. Complete you might have almost any? Please permit me to understand making sure that I could just simply subscribe. Cheers.

  2. I listened and I took in all you said Kathy. I feel like your culture might be more facilitative to entrepreneurs than mine and also you can do anything now your kids are grown. My kid is still little and my family need financial security that doesn’t come from entrepreneurship. Especially not in Jamaica where it costs you more than you earn just to live.
    What you said about being sick from work resonates. I wish I could quit that life but it’s not realistic in my country. I have debt and bills, I haven’t spent 18 years working , I don’t own my home, my car is broken down…I need the stability that quitting or entrepreneurship doesn’t provide.
