This was a great video from Chris Baca about leaning into the pain. His analogy of an EQ for the different aspects of your life made me think about where my EQ is right now.

Currently it would be heavily weighted towards being a dad because that’s how life goes. That means I need to be okay with not pushing products out as fast or having the extra time to head out to events. The few times that I can head out and meet peers, I need to pick the right events that suit me and my goals.

If you’re in the thick of parenting, don’t sweat it, embrace it. If you’re working to build a business and stepping back on being a dad, set a time limit so that you don’t look up and see that it’s been 20 years and you’re still “building”.
