Man maintains his balance, poise, and sense of security only as he is moving forward.
We constantly have to work on keeping our life in balance. It can be a struggle we deal with every day. My wife and I work full-time jobs and have to communicate constantly so we know who has what where. With two growing active kids, it adds to the juggling act.
I have been using a weekly review where I check my work and home calendars Sunday evenings. We need to keep our plans up to date or they begin to break down. Starting a plan is the first part developing a system to keep things up to date is the key to the entire process. Planning can bring balance to your life.
After you have planned out your week, make sure to add some margin time in. I like to say yes to requests from other people. Although I have slowly learned that saying “yes” to one thing is saying “no” to something else. Having strong priorities is a good way to start removing the unnecessary tasks. Having some margin built in can bring balance to your life.
We simply don’t need to do it all. I came to this a little slower than my spouse. She wanted to get someone to clean our house much sooner than I did. I have to admit it does save time. I am sure you have a few things you could use some help with. Perhaps you could have someone mow your lawn or get your groceries delivered. Delegating something today can bring balance to your life.
