I’m fired up today for two reasons. One, today demarks episode #212, and I love the number 212. Second, and more importantly, because it’s LABOR DAY! As a matter of fact, I think you will smile (maybe laugh) at this year’s traditional “Laaabborrr Day” message on one of my favorite holidays.
In addition, there are 2-other parts to today’s episode:
First, I share three thoughts on the value of “hard work.” This includes…
- Point #1 – Have you ever had a job where you felt lost, or it wasn’t what you wanted?
- Point #2 – The value of hard work – What if Covid has thrown you off-course, and you are pivoting, but you are NOT quite sure where you are going?
- Point #3 – Work Ethic – The worst thing you can do right now is nothing. It’s tiring doing NOTHING. So I share five questions to ask yourself.
Finally, I have three questions from the audience today:
- Rebecca.garitypinto asks – You’ve just hit a parenting milestone with your oldest kid going to college. What is the greatest lesson Luke has taught you in the last 18-years?
- Tataylor24 asks – If you could record only ONE more episode of the IMPACT SHOW, who would your guest be and what would the topic be?
- JSR_Fitness7 asks – Out of all the letters in I.M.P.A.C.T., what one is the hardest for you to apply?
I hope you find great value and inspiration in today’s SHOW and a little fun with my Coach Wolf impersonation. Please share it with your community, family, and friends and have them subscribe to our podcast; that would be amazing. As always, thanks for what you do, and keep the questions coming in!

14:02 – Point # 2 – What if Covid has thrown you off-course, and you are pivoting, but you are NOT quite sure where you are going?
You gotta be adaptable: Mission Driven, short term focus with long term vision, leaders have to listen better than before to balance out the mission, lead from the heart and show empathy.
21:16 – Point #3 – Work Ethic, The worst thing you can do right now is NOTHING.
Five questions for you to answer: What are the five things you love to do? What are your top gifts? Identify the major pain points of your clients/customers. What are the solutions to the pain points? Finally, what would make you most happy and fulfilled if money wasn’t an issue?
