First Things First (How to NOT Miss the Good Stuff)

By Lars Hedenborg


First Things First (How to NOT Miss the Good Stuff)

Lars Hedenborg    June 1, 2020



First Things First (How to NOT miss the Good Stuff)

Big takeaways:

1. Make sure to have your priorities straight.

2. Everything in your life is battling for your attention.

3. Use your team to take things off your plate.

Get used to putting first things first so that you don't miss the good things.

Recently on a trip to Tennessee (an annual trip I take each year with my family) my wife told me that I was a good dad. Now, that isn’t the point I’m trying to make – instead, I’m saying that above all else we need to make sure to continue putting first things first.

Something I've been very intentional about over the last few years is making sure to remind myself the positions of my kids, my wife, and my physical health in the battle for my attention. As my business grows, I know that those things ultimately have to come first, always.

The reason this is so important to me is that I used to not be this way. I was running a business out of my home, on the phone, taking calls, arranging deals, scheduling appointments, I was so busy with life that I forgot what was really important. My relationships were suffering. My body was suffering. I lost the same 20lbs over and over again because I didn't put my health and wellbeing above the other things that were taking control of my life.


It took a complete paradigm shift to re-arrange my priorities to better match what they should be. In that shift, that I’ve been mentioning for the past few episodes, I shifted from being encompassed by my business to being in charge of it, but leveraging my team to help my business serve me rather than holding it up.

Your team becomes the integral part of your well-being, because they hold their own parts of the business so that no one person has to take the full weight of it on their own.
This shift affected every aspect of my life in a positive way - from family matters to the business itself, I learned to put first things first and focus on what really matters in the long run.


Much Love & Respect,
