Your Quick Strategy for Life Balance

How do you begin solving a jigsaw puzzle? You start with the four corners. The corners are unique, and are easily distinguished from the other pieces. Life is like a (no, not a box of chocolates) a jigsaw puzzle–you’ve got to locate your key corner “stones” pieces. What would you identify as
four key pillars in life? These pillars have to be such that everything else works together, and makes sense because of them. What four key principles make life make sense for you? How did these pillars serve your life this year?

 

it seems crazy that so many people work tirelessly, as if that were possible, and end up with emptiness and dissatisfaction. There are many people who have full pockets, but empty hearts. There is a better way. No matter what you do, you will always be left with 168 hours in a week. All the time management in the world will still leave you void, if you’ve failed to give just due to the pillars of life, whatever they may be.

 

Are you spending 80% of your time on things that only give you a 20% return? That is tragic when you could be spending 20% of your time on things that give you an incredible 80% return. How’s that possible, you ask? Strategy, that’s how. Consider managing your priorities as a way of managing your time. Time management focuses on the 168, while priority management primarily focuses on the key (four) pillars in your life. if you don’t know what the (four) key pillars are, it helps to group your life into four areas: mental, physical, spiritual, and social for example.

 

Finally, when you plan your week, make sure you’ve allocated time (energy) for each area. The amount of energy you commit to each area will change depending on the happenings of that week. What’s important is to invest energy, even if only a little, in each area. This will help you maintain a balance beyond just work and home. THINK ABOUT IT, AND THEN BE ABOUT IT.
