Managing Work Life Balance

2 min read

If you’re like me you were raised to go to school, get great grades, find a job that pays well and work diligently climbing the ladder to a top position. Sound familiar?

Well that’s the path I was on for the first 33 years of my life………… Until I had a few life-changing events that started me thinking about what the next chapters of my life were going to be about. You see climbing the corporate ladder meant making some sacrifices, which I have now come to realise were actually choices. I didn’t think Managing Work Life Balance was going to be important, but the choices I made were based on what I believed to be important or priorities for my life then.

That was until I lost my dad and I started a family!

As a kid growing up I had an amazing ability to dream about my future, and what I wanted to be when I grew up, and what I wanted to have. I never knew, or had to consider the significant responsibilities that were going to come along as I developed from being a child to an adult, a parent, and husband.

When moving through the stage of having to fend for oneself, and then evolving to care for children, all of a sudden numerous responsibilities enter one’s life, and then we’re confronted with the challenge of Managing Work Life Balance.

So how do you do it? How do you Manage Work Life Balance?

Step 1 to Managing work life balance is to identify the various aspects of your life. For example you can group most things you’re involved in under the following categories: Work/Career/ Business, Financial, Relationships, Wellbeing, and Spirituality.

Step 2 is to rate each area above on a scale of 1 – 10 of being satisfied with that area.

Step 3 create an inspiring vision of what your life is like when the areas are all rating a 10/10.

Step 4 set some goals and take positive actions towards improving in the areas you want to.

Step 5 to Managing work life balance is to review your progress weekly through the art of Reflection. That way you’ll be monitoring your progress and making fine tuning touches as you go.

Managing work life balance is really a CHOICE and that’s something you control and can make happen.

Choose to have a life where your career / business, financial, relationships, wellbeing, and spirituality is all thriving, and achieved by Managing Work Life Balance.
