Q&A – Managing Guilt

From: Mike Piercey at Cornerstone Constructions

Expert: Matt Jones from Cube Consulting

Firstly, thanks to Mike who just emailed us the amazing review below.

Hi Matt,
I found your podcast via your episode on The Tradies Business Show, and have since listened to every one of your episodes.
There isn’t enough peer recognition in our industry, so I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how bloody good your product is.
Thanks for sharing your knowledge and network with all of us.

Kind Regards,
Mike Piercey

I replied to his email thanking him and asking if there was anything that he might need any help with currently to which he replied,

I guess the thing I struggle most with is finding a reasonable work/life balance.
I love working on the business and I love spending time with my family but I usually feel guilty when I’m doing one and not the other.

Kind Regards,

This is a problem that I feel we all suffer with from time to time.
I experienced it myself first hand last year, when I went skiing with a couple of mates. The whole time I felt guilty because I was away from my business.
I remember while I was away thinking, ‘why do I feel like this? Surely I can justify a weekend away’.

As a result of that experience, I put together the Learn’n’ski program that’s happening next month in Wanaka, New Zealand. It was my way of making a great experience tax deductible for my friends and clients. Check out more about Learn’n’ski 2016 here. Excuse the shameless plug 😉

Anyway, the reality is, we all battle with guilt from time to time, so to help us find out why and what we can do about it, I invited Matt from Cube Consulting back on the show to help us get to the bottom of it.
You might remember Matt from episodes TSS017TSS018, TSS019 & TSS020. He is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to mindset and strategy and his podcasts were some of our most downloaded. Go back and check them out.

A big thanks to Mike for the question and to Matt for sharing his expertise with us once again.
If you have any questions/queries, or needs, email them in to [email protected] and you may well get your own podcast out of it 😉

I have been listening to the pod casts for a few months now, I can't get enough of all the awesome content that you guys provide. Especially when you guys deliver it from a trade perspective which helps out a lot. Keep up the good work and hopefully one day I can afford one of the trade training trips.
