The Kind of Success That Truly Matters with Jessie Andres
Oftentimes, we are so focused on being too busy that we forget what we are truly busy about. As high achievers, we have the tendency to get so caught up in our daily routines and responsibilities that we lose sight of our real purpose and intentions. We also sometimes overcommit and do so many things at once that it becomes difficult to allow ourselves to just be.
Since we now live in a fast-paced world, a lot of people associate being busy with being productive. But remember, just because you are working all the time does not mean you are achieving a lot. And though success is relative, it would be safe to say that no amount of achievement or work can be meaningful if your mental health and your relationships are being compromised in the process of attaining it.
Yes, we owe it to ourselves to maximize our potential and the opportunities that come our way. However, as you work your way towards your goals, always hold on to your purpose, your values, and what really matters to you.
Our guest and my dear friend, Jessie Andres, is both a high-achiever and a mother. Though she has been thriving as a career woman and a parent, she recalls the challenges she went through and how she managed to still prioritize her health, her wellbeing, and her family while pursuing her dreams. Learn some practical tips on time management and being organized, and gain a nugget of wisdom or two as you listen to this episode!
