We live in an era where success is often defined by over-achievement in either our professional or personal lives. When we focus too much on our business or professional goals, our relationships can suffer. Likewise, when we ignore our professional development needs, our job security or business can be put at risk.
We’re thrown into a constant state of unbalance between the relentless and competitive corporate work ethic, the “need-it-now” mentality encouraged by our dependency on technology, and the desire to see, do, and achieve more each day.
So often, we’re driven by the desire for ‘more’ that we lose sight of what’s really important: our relationships, health, and enjoyment of life.
Another type of imbalance can happen when our personal lives are strained. Parental responsibilities, spousal difficulties, and even the support needs of our aging parents can create a disruptive level of stress. Strains in our personal life can affect our productivity at work and threaten our health and emotional well being.
Regaining work-life balance is a step by step process that requires us to look at various aspects of our lives in honest and frank ways.
The work-life balance exercises in this ebook will help you reflect on what’s important in your life right now and how you can reclaim the happiness you deserve.
