Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love

We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.

But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.

48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.

If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.

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.

Do you have a plan?

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.

Where is your margin?

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.

What can you delegate?

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.

Love the suggestion on margin in our schedules - too often is it easy to CRAM things in and that is where most of us get tripped up. Love your tips Tom! Thanks for sharing!
