Life seems to take us in different directions, often to extremes. A grouchy boss can make our life at work difficult. A sick kid can make our evenings miserable. A weather event, like a blizzard or hurricane, can make a lousy week even worse. With so many things going on, finding your life’s balance is tricky. Let’s look for a way you can re-center your life’s balance.
What parts of your life are out of balance? Identifying these out-of-balance extremes helps you determine where you need to make changes. For example, you may be spending 60-70 hours a week on the job, while not getting any time with your spouse or kids. Your work life and your family life are extremely out of balance. This should become a step that you return to periodically to measure how out of balance life is.
