WORK, Life, Balance:     How to manage them both!

Hey guys, I hope your day is off to a wonderful start. I want you to face the world today, focused, strong and ready.

My motivational quote for today is from: Eric Thomas- Motivational Speaker.  “When you want to succeed as bad as you breath, then you will be successful!” 

Very powerful, and I hope you take the time to meditate on this today.

Now lets get right into today topic and that is Work -Life Balance. How can you prioritize work ( your career and ambitions) verses your lifestyle (your family, health, pleasure). How can we succeed at both, which for most of us are very important.

I cant speak for all, however my perception of the subject, balancing both work and life play top priority in my view of success! Personally being able to succeed in my career and maintain my lifestyle, having either of the two intervene with the other, is my idea of succeeding.  Some may say how is this possible?

We’ll the light to the end of this tunnel may not be in sight, but with planning and preparations, this can be achieved. 

Well what is it going to take?

How many of you miss sharing moments with your spouse or children, because you find yourself, working endless hours in the workplace. I have a few tips to help you organize your work/ life situations to help you achieve the perfect balance.

Let’s start by nurturing yourself. You need the energy!

If you are unhealthy, there’s no possible way you will have the stamina, mentally or physically to deal with a day’s work, and come home and face your responsibility to your family.  Make sure you are getting the proper diet and rest.

You will feel much better and energized…..the two key factors to make the balance work.

Go at your day with a positive, mental, attitude, and know how to expect the unexpected. How many of you have let a stressful situation at work, come home with you, or have taking a stressful situation with you from home, to the workplace.

Leave that stress at the door!  Enter both home and work, with a open, positive mind.

Take 10 minutes of your time to de-stress yourself, before starting your work day, and evening with the family. For those who work at home, organization, and scheduling is Key! Make sure you are not intertwining your work time, with family time.

It’s important when we work at home that you keep a schedule just as you are leaving your home to commute to work. When your work day is done, its done!

I have one last tip for you today, lets look at how your living! I know most of us in the United States feel, we are worked, worked, worked. Take  time research other cites and countries and study their way of life.

Some of them have actually figured it out. When you see that it can be done.  Then it wont seem so hard to accomplish.

Think about your life, and where you want to be and how your gonna get there!
