Stew Friedman teaches at The Wharton School of Business. He has a show on SiriusXM’s Business Channel where I first heard him, and have long since become a regular listener.

He’s a masterful interviewer and a prolific writer.

In addressing his concept of Work-Life Integration, he says that he starts with three principles. The first of these is Be Real —

“To be real is to act with authenticity

by clarifying what’s important to you.

It’s about exploring your answer to this basic question:

What matters most to me in life?”

Two invitations from me to you today:

+Take some thoughtful, prayerful, focused time today and answer that…in writing, starting with “What matters most to me in life is” and going on from there. .

+Look at your calendar and your budget/expenses and see how they line up with your answer to that first question.

“But, Joe, I’m busy!”

Yup. Which makes this even more important.

And remember, you’re worth the effort that’s going to take. After all, I came so you can have real and eternal life, more and better life than you ever dreamed of. — Christ Jesus, John 10:10b.
