Lee owns an IT company. Every single week, he was stuck replacing “sick” engineers and practically spent more than 18 hours a day, 7 days a week, 360 days a year, working.
Compared to his competitors, he was making considerable profits, but he was not 100% satisfied, because he didn’t have any work life balance and wasn’t enjoying life at all.
He was off only a couple of hours a day, and when we, coaches, met him, he was severely sad and upset (possibly clinically depressed in a downward spiral), all due to the fact that he didn’t even have time for the basic needs in life: eat and sleep.
We started coaching Lee, and the root cause of his big challenge was immediately obvious: he could not manage his resources (time, money, energy, and employees) correctly.
How do you have a balanced & happy life?
After only a few months of coaching, Tom was able to take 3 months completely off and travel through Italy and Europe and spend time with all his childhood friends :)
