The First 2 Rows

 I was listening to a podcast the other day. The guest proposed this challenge:

Imagine you are at your funeral. You see the first 2 rows. The first 2 rows are typically reserved for family and those closest to the deceased. 

Now, examine your life as it stands now. Are you giving more attention and effort to those seated beyond the two rows...or is your focus on the most important people in your life. 

For me, it really struck a chord. So often, when I get home, I am distracted. Tired. Spent. I give my family fumes...when they should be getting so much more from me. 

Take an audit of your life. What can you do differently to be more intentional? How can your family get the 'best' of you versus the leftovers? What will you commit to today? 

How do you invest in the 'first two rows'?

Have a great week of getting after it. Have a great week of being present with those around you. I'm always in your corner- Win the Day- pja

“Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time—past and future—the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is.”
― Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment
