Achieve a Healthy BALANCE in Your Work/Life Account

Be prepared to say no

Saying no replaces the “shoulds” and “musts” with “wants” and “cans” and gives you control of your time, energy and choices rather than letting others control them. 

Accept that you are successful

Success is how you define it rather than how others define it for you. See success as accumulating  a wealth of quality people and experiences rather than a quantity of things.

Let go of perfection, expectation and negativity

Strive for excellence rather than perfection in all that you do. Have realistic expectations of yourself and others. Be positive and collaborative.

Allow enough time to enjoy activities and nurture relationships

Maintain a life outside of your work that is full of activities that you enjoy and strong, stimulating and supportive relationships with family and friends.

Negotiate 30 minutes of private time in your daily schedule

Make this time just for you. Think about what’s working and what needs improving in your personal and professional lives. Create an action plan of goals and make them happen.

Consider that you always have options

Choose to make each and every moment count. Choose to focus on what’s important. Choose to make a difference. Choose to make life happen for you rather than  to you.

Energize, organize and prioritize

Energize by being brave, active, light, aware, nourished, calm, eager and decisive.  Organize by eliminating the clutter from your mind, home, office, car and bag. Prioritize by deciding what must get done now, go ahead and get started!
