The mistaken belief about work-life balance

Ever found yourself saying 'How do I get this work-life balance thing back?" 

 

A Harvard Business Review from a couple of years ago found 94% of professionals of working 50 hours or more per week. I trust if that's you then you have a long term plan to reduce those hours (that's a whole other topic!). But this week is all about those pockets of times where you are working long hours.

 

In these times you can achieve work-life balance through these three things. 

 

  1. Be fully present to where you are in the moment (be it work or home).
  2. Know your top 5 values and make sure every single day you do something towards living those values. 
  3. Ask yourself how much of your identity is wrapped up in your role as a leader? If our identity is associated with only one part of our lives, we can hit a problem. It then becomes the priority over everything else. So take some time to reflect on how do you spread your identity across a variety of areas?

 

Finally, I have a question for you. If you could have a private conversation with me, what two questions would you like to ask me?
