I will be talking about work-life balance in a lot of my posts. That is because I think it is important. And it is something that I know you can do!
What you will learn…
- You are not alone, this is a big challenge.
- Be realistic, you have to work at ensuring the right balance.
- Use tools, one is included here that can help you.
Yea, yea, sounds simple. I know that it is not. As a result, even when you get there, it may only be for a while at which point things change. That might come from the work, where you get a new project that you are excited about and/or want to spend extra time on. Or it might come from the personal side of things. Maybe you are going to have a baby. The extra doctor’s appointments might take you away from your work. These two examples both mean that you will need to rethink and replan your work-life balance.
One of the best ways to figure this out is to listen to the many great videos that are online. Here are two of my favorites.
