Episode #120: What Fills Your Tank?
The “what” is easy. Craftwork is a specialty coffee shop and vibrant membership-based workspace with locations in Fort Worth (Foundry, Camp Bowie, Magnolia) and Austin (Domain). We serve craft coffee and are a connected coworking space. But you knew that already. Our “why” is our heart – we desire to create spaces and places where our members and customers experience connection and community.
Rest is an important part of our lives. As we head into a season filled with holidays, family, friends, and the year-end, it’s something we will have to actively seek out to lead a balanced life.
Many people equate rest to sleep, but we think rest can be a number of things that help us feel refreshed and leave our tanks full. Because rest is one of our Core Values, we encourage each of our team members to identify the things that make them feel rested and practice them regularly.
What Fills Your Tank?: The daily rhythm of life, though beautiful, can often leave us feeling exhausted and with an empty tank, depleted of energy. The things that give us energy and fill our tank are those that we consider restful. Can you identify three things that fill your tank? Write them down. We must commit to doing these things in order to enter into other aspects of our lives with a clear head and grateful heart.
Once you’ve written your three things down, write next to them how often you commit to practicing them. Commit to a cadence that will help you feel rested enough to enter into work (at your job, in your relationships, or for the causes you’re supporting).
Going into this week and season, we encourage you to post this note above your desk or on your bathroom mirror. Let us not forget to spend time doing the things that fill our tank.
