When you hear the word “balance” what comes to mind? I have always pictures an acrobat walking on tightrope trying not to look down so they can make it to the end of the line. That is kind of how I see balance in the real world today. We are all just trying to create a work/home life balance that keeps us afloat without causing undue stress in our lives. Do you feel you have that type of balance in your life? What makes it so important?
“It’s all about quality of life and finding a happy balance between work, friends, and family.” – Philip Green
Your quality of life will greatly improve by finding the right combination of work, friends, and family. When work becomes the only thing you focus on, the others tend to get left behind which causes problems in your home life. It is impossible to make everyone happy, but it is possible to make yourself happy by creating the right balance in your life. There is enough of you to go around if you really focus on what is most important to you.
Career, family, friends…these are all important. When one of them gets ignored it creates friction. That is why it is so important to create balance and make sense of your work/home life balance.
This week we will be discussing the importance of creating a work/home life balance so that you stay happy and fulfilled both at home and at work.
