We all have the same number of hours in a day…just 24! It took me years to understand that concept as I continued to work 100 hour weeks, 2 weeks of each month for 10 years in the former Soviet Union or Central and Eastern Europe. Time was not a consideration – the fact that there was so much to be done to create the infrastructure for updated health systems and nursing excellence was a priority. And, I worked hard and loved it. As I reflect on the past, I would not change a thing. I have had an incredible opportunity to impact many lives in the process, and I have many friends worldwide. How we spend our time is our choice, and as I rediscovered myself and fine-tuned my own commitments, I knew that change was on the horizon. I respectfully resigned from boards and committees, and chose what would work for me. I redefined my own choices, and they include: www.gedinfp.com, www.ihfglobal.com, www.smwgroupllc.com, www.corelimited.com, and www.sharonmweinstein.com. I still have 24 hours in each day…just like each of you! I still honor my commitments with the same energy and fulfillment! But, I have found time to continue to give back to society and to honor what matters most – family!
