#088: Work/Life Balance, Fact or Fiction? with Larry Hagner

Work/Life Balance, it’s a term that gets tossed around a lot but is it even possible to achieve? With all that we have going on as men, it seems impossible to manage at times.

My guest today, Larry Hagner, with the Good Dad Project, shares with me about how to create more purposeful time, why it’s easier to be driven at home than at work, and what it means to life with work/life integration.

Larry HagnerLarry Hagner is an author, speaker, coach, podcaster, and founder of the Good Dad Project.

The Good Dad Project is dedicated to helping men become the best version of themselves so they can show up big for their kids.

Larry grew up in a fatherless environment for most of his life and when he became a father himself 9 years ago he had no idea what to do. All he knew is that he didn’t want to fail. He dove into self improvement, he worked with coaches and mentors, and created the Good Dad Project to help other men with their struggles.

Larry has recently published a book called “The Dad’s Edge: 9 Simple Ways to Unlimited Patience, Improved Relationships, and Positive Lasting Memories.” He has also created an online course called: “The Dad’s Edge: 6 Simple Strategies to Empowering your Journey as a Dad.”

The Iron Council

ColorIcon1I’m not going to get into all the details but I do want let you know that we have a tool available inside the Iron Council that will help you get crystal clear about what you want to accomplish in 2017.

Too many men give up on their goals way too soon because, if they set them at all, they have no plan to actually make their objectives a reality.

That’s where the Twelve-Week Battle Plan comes into play. It’s going to help you identify 4-key objectives you want to accomplish in the first quarter alone and the tactics to ensure you reach them. And, you’ll have the accountability of the rest of the men inside the Iron Council to hold your feet to the fire in getting there.

You can learn more about The Council and get signed up at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil. And, as you look around, I want you to consider what 2017 will look like if you accomplish your biggest goals with your relationships, your health, your wealth, and yourself.
