Me time. What is it? It sounds selfish, right? Especially when it’s ingrained in your spiritual Christian psyche that life is “not about me”. Which is true in many aspects. Life is about God our Creator and is to be lived for His glory. And life is about loving other people. So if life is boiled down to two rules: 1. Love God and 2. Love others. Where does love for self fit in? Or does it fit in at all?

How do we navigate the work/life balance men often struggle with? How do we balance being faithful with our work and our family? Too many men live to work instead of working to live while they love their wives and kids. Per and I speak very frankly about the struggles of both and how to keep our eyes focused on what matters through it all. Enjoy!
Erik and I discuss the fluidity of our identity and how we process and learn from it over time. We discuss the power of productivity and doing work that matters and how that affects how we view ourselves. I love Erik’s down-to-earth approach and his humility to admit he has not figured this out but is rather in a learning process. We talk about the increase in popularity in our culture with productivity, time-managing hacks, social media and time lost browsing and being hyper-connected in this digital age. I love Erik’s awareness of how time is spent, how to recognize the difference between quality work and quantity of work and his focus on time-management vs. time-measurement. How is my value or self-worth affected by the importance I put on both the content I create online and the response or lack of response to it (Facebook Likes, number of comments, amount of reTweets, number of followers, feedback, shares, etc.)?
