Maintaining the Balance BY GLENN EVERS, MAA Sharpen the Saw means preserving and enhancing the greatest asset you have- you. It means having a balanced program for self-renewal in the four areas of your life: physical, social/emotional, mental, and spiritual. -Dr. Stephen Covey, author of Seven Habits of Highly Effective People A uthor and motivational speaker Stephen Covey tells the story of a lumberjack trying in vain to cut down a small tree. A passerby notices that the saw doesn't seem to be cutting well at all, and suggests the lumberjack take a break to sharpen his saw. The lumberjack replies that he doesn't have time to do that-he's much too busy sawing to take a break. Of course, the moral of the fable is that if we take a break to sharpen our saw, we can return to the task at hand more effectively than if we just keep trying to forge ahead with a saw that becomes progressively duller. Obviously, a sharp saw cuts faster and more efficiently. One of my favorite ways to take a break and refresh is to go camping-or should I say glamping. It gets me out into the fresh air and allows me to unplug, so to speak. In today's ultra-connected world, many of us are available online or by phone almost all of the time. Pressing pause every now and then is important to our physical and mental health, and lets us return to work refreshed and ready to take on the next challenge. In addition to meeting the demands of your jobs, many of you have made commitments to your local apartment associations as well as the FAA and even the National Apartment Association. I realize this often isn't easy, so I want to take a moment to thank those of who took the time to travel to Tallahassee at the end of January for our annual Legislative Conference. For the first time, we scheduled several other important meetings to take place in conjunction with the Legislative Conference. We have worked hard this year to be mindful when we are scheduling events of the amount of time that we ask you to be away from your jobs. In the days leading up to our statehouse visits, we had one of the three modules of Leadership Lyceum (with 24 students in attendance) and meetings of the Product/Service Council, Executive Committee, APAC Board of Directors and Legislative Committee, Association Executives Council, and Board of Directors. This meant one less time for you to be away from your jobs on FAA business. In addition, we reduced the number of board of directors meetings this year from four to three. The Legislative Conference itself was outstanding. During the Tuesday night briefing dinner several knowledgeable speakers shared their experience and updated us on looming issues. (Read more in the Legislative Conference Report on Page 14.) On Wednesday, we visited the statehouse to talk about our four priority issues for this year. Overwhelmingly, our senators and representatives met us with encouragement and open arms. As our amazing lobbyists Ron Book and Kelly Mallette have said, we have become relevant and legislators know who we are. I look forward to this amazing year that has started off so strong for FAA. I know firsthand that it's not easy to balance the requirements of a job, commitment to our association, and that all-important restoration. I'll continue to be cognizant of the demands we make on your time, and I ask you to take time to sharpen the saw, so you'll always bring your best to the table. ▲ PUBLISHED MARCH 2016 / FAP-Q0116 / 2747 MULTIFAMILYFLORIDA l Spring 2016 l 7 http://www.faahq.org http://www.naylor.com
