518: Prioritizing Happiness and Success

Today, we’ve got an inspiring and insightful conversation lined up for you, touching on everything from relationships and parenting to designing a fulfilling life.

Rob kicks things off with a thought-provoking idea: Are we too focused on long-term goals at the expense of short-term happiness? Money often drives our decisions but it’s so important to live intentionally, especially as we get older and need to bridge those gaps between our careers and personal lives.

Ever feel like you’re trying to have it all but getting nowhere fast? While we often try to have it all, we can’t. However, we can have those things that are most important to us, if we prioritize. Our goals can shift, but delaying happiness shouldn’t be the norm. Rob also reflects on his retirement goal: automating income to free up time for enjoyable pursuits. We’ll discuss various methods, including investments, that can lead to financial freedom and a happier life.

Together, we explore the importance of designing a life that aligns with your values and vision. Join us as we unpack these life lessons with a dash of humor and a whole lot of heart.
