Well I’m here! I’m made it to the Type A Mom Conference! The first day was great. I saw some fabulous presentations and I have so much I want to share but one thing REALLY stood out for me. It was one of those a-ha moments that I just needed to blog about.
Deb Rox presented on Strategic Planning for Bloggers. At one point in the presentation she said and I’m paraphrasing here as this is from memory so bear with me…
I do things for 3 reasons and 3 reasons only. I do something because it’s smart. I do something because it’s fun. I do something because it’s kind. If it’s not smart, fun or kind why would I do it?
I love this! I find myself doing so much that sometimes I think I forget to evaluate WHY I’m doing it. Am I doing it because it’s a strategic move that will further my career or lead to income? Am I doing simply because it’s fun? Or am I doing it because I want to help someone else out.
Smart, Fun, Kind.
I like it. How about you? Why do YOU do things?
