Remember, work is life and life is work. Avoid looking to the mirage of balance between the two. Instead, be balanced by investing wholly while at work! Be whole and show up with fullness when it’s time. Then, go home, and be home, when it’s time. The question is wholeness and showing up fully and abundantly at the right time. Are we whole?
Too many seek to find their validation or acceptance in work because doing is the quickest way to fill a void in our being. Often, someone from our past left a great big hole, or we’ve allowed someone or our own internal dialogue to devalue the priceless person we are. Let’s be honest with ourselves and ask why we’re doing what we’re doing. If we’re burning ourselves out in our occupation, stepping on people as we climb the corporate ladder, and finding more fulfillment in our work than in the relationships of our lives, we can be sure there are past skeletons in our closets. Wounds we must face.
We must stop putting a pretty bow on the lie – called an excuse – that sacrificing ourselves, our health, our happiness and our family are just part of the business owner’s M.O. It’s not, nor does it have to be! What’s really driving us? The call to find healing – deep healing – is compelling us!
For without healing, we won’t show up whole – able to abound and make greater impact in the time we choose to contribute and charge toward our vision.
Carnegie shares the story of John D. Rockefeller Sr., who at the age of 43 had built up the largest monopoly the world had ever seen – the great Standard Oil Company. Yet at only 53, when most men are at their prime, his shoulders drooped, and he could barely walk. Carnegie states, “the ceaseless work, the endless worry, the streams of abuse, the sleepless nights and the lack of exercise and rest had exacted their toll … they’d brought him to his knees … he was now the richest man in the world yet had to live on a diet that a poor man would have scorned.” Rockefeller’s income at the time was a million dollars a week, and two dollars a week paid for all the food he could eat. “Nothing but medical care, the best money could buy, kept him from dying at the age of 53,” Carnegie concludes.
From this wounded personality exudes an unrealistic ambition. Covey shares that those exemplifying wholeness “don’t become workaholics, religious zealots, political fanatics, crash dieters, food bingers, pleasure addicts or fasting martyrs.” When you work, be all in, so that when you’re home, you’re all in. Seek to find healing so you can become whole and operate abundantly! Let being all in at work – whole and abundant – amplify your energy! Focus on wholeness!

Bouncing & Pedaling Contribute to Energized Culture
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Team members bounce and pedal at work contributing to the thriving culture and accelerated growth of TwelveStone Health Partners, a premier provider of post-acute chronic care services based in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
Large fitness balls are more than decoration. They’ve replaced several cubicle chairs of the pharmacy’s 150-person staff. Kerstyn M., a registered dietician for TwelveStone, reported her workflow, focus and fitness all increased because of the mobility and slight bounce she enjoys balancing on her fitness ball.
Jennifer B. works in the billing department of TwelveStone and enriches her day with an “Under Desk Elliptical” from FitDesk, a North Carolina company. Jennifer has two sons and staying strong to fully engage work and then go home with energy for them is important to her.

She said moving and investing in her health significantly impacts how she feels about her contribution at work and in life.
Tim Hooper, founder of Time4Energy, also based in Murfreesboro, has aligned with TwelveStone as they sponsor the national campaign, “Got Energy?” Tim speaks to teams about passionate, abundant and vibrant living and encourages small changes like those exemplified at TwelveStone. “We were made to move; when we move our bodies, we stimulate our minds,” Tim stated. “I was super encouraged by the modern, and wellness-centered philosophy of Twelve Stone when I toured their state-of-the-art facility.”
Tim noted numerous gym bags lying in team members’ offices. He watched staff members give cold, 17-ounze water bottles to visitors and patients. Chief executive officer, Shane Reeves, has labelled these, “living water.” Additionally, Lee Golden, chief pharmacy officer who miraculously fought and is rehabbing from a raging illness, was supplied a height-adjustable standing desk upon his return to TwelveStone.
Shane Reeves leads by example as an avid member of Murfreesboro Athletic Club; further, Reeves and Hooper share a monthly run discussing business. TwelveStone also sponsors a local, annual 5K race paying registration for team members.

“They’re not just hype; they truly encourage and invest in the well-being, fitness and energy of their people,” Tim reflected. “When you truly invest in team members’ wholeness, team members wholly invest into your business!”
Last year, TwelveStone Health Partners made its third evolution since their start as a Murfreesboro drug store in 1980. In 2016, Shane Reeves, launched their vision for national expansion. Just last month, Claritas Capital, a Nashville-based private equity firm, announced they will invest 3.35 million in TwelveStone’s expansion. This sort of investor-confidence is driven by leadership’s clear vision and a cutting-edge business plan; and, just as importantly, an energized, enthusiastic and engaged team of people to carry out that plan and propel the business forward!
Time4Energy, founded in 2013 and owned by Tim Hooper in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, transforms overwhelm, stress and burnout into energized, enthusiastic and engaged living through keynote speaking, workshops and coaching. Tim’s book, “Got Energy?” launched an international campaign partnering with corporations and communities to facilitate passionate, abundant and vibrant living. Website: http://timehooper.com
