Striking a balance between work and the rest of your life can be challenging. Here’s how to make this goal achievable.
“Making the most of life” is not a goal that needs much selling. Most of us would readily admit to not living completely fulfilled lives, especially those of us suffering from constant work preoccupation. Clients, staff, marketing… let’s face it, the demands on a business owner do not always foster a healthy work-life balance.
What does a balanced life really look like anyway? It’s not the status quo, that’s for sure. The average business-person spends most of his or her day in reactionary mode dealing with the day-to-day work challenges that crop up, rather than being proactive about the work they want to do. Not good. Living in reactionary mode is stressful and frustrating. It takes away an individual’s sense of purpose, and causes them to lose sight of the pursuits that energized them in the beginning.
