I was already fully immersed in my oil business when I discovered the concept of Oola. One night, I decided to take the quiz and I failed. I failed so bad that I knew I had to change somehow.
I want more control of my life in the 7 F's, but I had two other areas that I had no control over. I had no control over my love life and I had no control over by education. I haven't been in school for years but professional development is extremely important to me. I like to read, but I have found myself skimming through books because I just can't juggle everything.
My journey is ongoing, just as the Oola guys. I am growing as a professional, an entrepreneur, a leader, a cat mom, a friend, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, and coworker. I hope one day I can go to work, whether it is for me or for my current company, and smile from start to finish. Until that day, I need to put all of the focus on inching up on the scale.
Recently, I finally got the chance to read a short professional development book. "60 Second Leadership" was a surprisingly good read. I was shocked when it came in the mail. It was a small book of around 100 pages. It took me a little over an hour to read while marking notes and highlighting. I was impressed at how well these real life and simple applications of leadership so easily blended into this practice of Oola. Oola isn't about drinking tea chilling while eating avocado toast. It is about having a balanced life. The author of 60 Second Leadership gave real explanations of how he and his family were growing as leaders, even when they weren't trying. Organized in 52, easy to apply essays or weekly time outs, the book is all about becoming a better personal leader. Build yourself to build your business, team, marriage, family, church, community.
