Work life balance. How do you achieve it?
The first thing that you need to do is understand that you have a finite amount of energy. You’ve only got, and what I like to call it is 100 balls of energy. And with those 100 balls of energy, if you think about yesterday, where did you put those balls of energy? And did you have a good day or did you have a bad day? What happens is when we just look back on a day and go. That was a good day, what actually happened is that we’ve actually put our energy into the things that are important to us. So those 100 100 balls of energy have actually been spent doing the things that bring us joy and are important to us.
So how do we become more conscious and do this better in the future? The first thing that you need to do is understand that you are made up of, I call them ingredients of life, or areas of your life. So what areas or ingredients of your life are important to you? That could be about family, home, spirituality, personal development, adventure, money work, etcetera. The first thing you need to do is understand what are those areas of your life that are important to you. Once you’ve understood that, you then need to look at well on a daily basis, or over a week, where do I want to be spending those 100 balls of energy?
Secondly, the key thing about work-life balance is that you have to be balanced about the way you do it. Example – If you listen to every, every person giving you advice you know you’d be going to the gym three times a week you’d be doing yoga three times a week you’d be doing meditation four times a week and there’s just not enough hours in the day.
So think about the areas that are important in your life, understanding that you only have 100 balls of energy. And then on every day set realistic realistic expectations of what you can achieve and then balancing those over the week and over a month and you will set up some rituals that you want to do might be on a monthly basis, or even a quarterly basis.
