“Invest in yourself like you would in your business, and the business of others.”
I often get asked in my line of work, “how do I manage my work/life balance?’’ I observe and work with so many clients in relentless pursuit of this thing we all call ‘work/life balance’ – and I’m a strong advocate for the pursuit – but these days I call a spade a spade, and to believe that we can have perfect balance or equilibrium in our life all the time is false. Personally, I’m someone who’s lucky to say I genuinely love my work, which is satisfying.
In everything that I do, I always try to be good at it and ensure I enjoy it (it’s the annoying overachieving athlete in me). I enjoy my personal time, social time and my work time – they are all part of my life. But trying to be good at everything in every part of my life, all at the same time, can be hard (exhausting, actually).
I’m the first to admit I’ve been guilty of complaining about a lack of ‘balance’, itching for the weekend or a day off even, because I’ve allowed the work part of the balance see-saw to dip too heavily the wrong way. I’ve found the key is having a toolkit or collection of ‘life’ recipes or ‘health hacks’ to refer back to, to bring you back into balance.
