The Coronavirus has given many us an opportunity to pause and think about life, our purpose, and even the right work life balance. What’s your perspective and has it changed over time?

“Balance” is one of many words that I recently got tattooed on my right arm.  When I think about my Dad, that’s the word I connect with him (font is his handwriting).  Needless to say, it’s something I feel strongly about.  I’ve spent a good portion of my life imbalanced with work and life.  It makes me happy and fulfilled to work toward goals and be productive, so I have to be militant about NOT working myself into the ground.  At this point in my life, health has to be my number 1 priority.  Not just physical health, but mental and emotional, as well.  Staying steady, knowing when to stop, and not obsessing over one area of my life – that’s the goal.  Keeping body, mind, heart, and soul in sync. Each one is just as important as the other. It’s a difficult thing to grasp, but I’m working on it constantly. Read more>>

Balance is a diffcult. As a father, husband, friend, and artist it can get very exhausting trying to make sure that you are giving the quality time to everyone but for me my focus comes from keeping Jesus at the center. No I have not always been consistent in this area of my life but when I have, even when life get rough and rocky, he gives me peace that I can’t even imagine and allows me to create ideas and presents opportunities for me to spend more time with my family and friends as well as create music.

My life and my welding business is a 24/7 thing. Even though I work 24/7 I always have time for my family. I believe family comes first always no matter what. My children always have question about my business. If I’m working on the weekend they always come out to come bring me lunch we sit down and eat wherever I’m working. I then show them what I’m doing or what I’m making. I like to show my children that anything is possible. Read more>>

It’s very important. Because as much as we want to work on our hobby or passion, we must go and “snap back to reality” and take care of ourselves and our surroundings. For me the balance has always been there and it’s been cemented a long time ago. Read more>>
