How To Make The Most Out Of Your Work Life Balance

By on March 2, 2018

A common question people have when they’re trying to become successful is, “How do I achieve work-life balance?” There is a clear answer to the question, you can’t.

There are periods when you need to work 80 or 100 hour weeks and there will be other periods when you work a few hours per week.

When you try to achieve a work-life balance, your life will become unbalanced. Your life isn’t supposed to be balanced. If you keep trying to achieve balance in your life you’ll find it’s impossible.

When you’re working on a big project, go all in with that project. Put in the hours, grind until you get it done. But when you’re done with that project, don’t go to the next project. Take a week off or perhaps a few days and let yourself recharge.

It’s no secret that your life will be out of balance. The quicker you accept that fact, the quicker you’ll achieve success.

Just because your life is out of balance doesn’t mean you can’t become successful. Only you will know if you’re out of balance. If you feel you need to spend more time with your family, then spend more time with them! No one is telling you that you can’t.

Your goal should be to incorporate your work into your life. If you love the work you’re doing, then it won’t feel like work at all. You’ll be showing up each day and having fun.

Do the people at the top of their industry get to where they are by having balance? Do you think Michael Jordan or Tom Brady would be as good as they are if they only sought out balance? Both gave themselves time to unplug but not before they gave their sports everything they had during the season.

Don’t think about how your life is out of balance, think about how you can improve your life in all areas.
