TRADE SHOW PROFESSIONAL: USE YOUR “TECH POWERS” TO SUPPORT LIFE (AS WELL AS WORK).
We carry more computational power in our pockets today than put man on the moon, with spreadsheet, translation, presentation and video-editing capabilities at our fingertips, and so much more. I personally struggle with being on the road so much and losing that personal time just being “present” with my family. Itʼs common that we Facetime/Skype/video-chat with clients and coworkers all over the world, yet we rarely do so with family. Why not? Use the tech for yourself, and give family more than a hurried call between events. Make it a priority: Put the date and time in your calendar. Send them a calendar Invite. It is critical to always be touching base and re-grounding yourself with whatʼs best and most important in your life. Plan it, and it will happen!
