In today’s episode, I’m joined by Cory Carlson, author of "Win at Home First" and "Rise and Go." Together, we dive into balancing work and home life, leveraging faith-based principles to foster holistic, integrated living.

In this episode, Cory and I discuss the challenges executives face, including the myth that one has to choose between professional success and family wellness. Cory shares insights from his personal journey, talking about how past mistakes have shaped his understanding of leadership and life. He highlights actionable strategies and provides a sneak peek into the frameworks laid out in his books. As we explore themes of presence, intentionality, and the role of faith in personal development, you’ll find valuable takeaways to enhance your own life.

Key Takeaways:

  • Balancing Work and Family: Success does not have to come at the expense of family life. Strategies such as intentional scheduling and compartmentalization help achieve balance.
  • Being Present: Whether at work or home, being fully engaged and present is essential. Avoid distractions and dedicate focused time to each aspect of your life.
  • Role of Faith: Cory's personal mantra, "God has the night shift," shows the importance of faith and trusting that God oversees our endeavors, providing peace and balance.
  • Leadership at Home: It's crucial to actively participate in family life through regular date nights and being open about work challenges and successes with your spouse and children.
  • Recovery from Setbacks: Drawing from his book "Rise and Go," Cory shares how resilience in the face of setbacks is essential for leaders, reinforcing that getting back up quickly is key to ongoing success.
