Ask a Mom or a Teammate How to Balance it All — 21 Comments

  1. I thin it is important to get advice from others who have mastered something that we have not. Its not always easy asking for advice/help but it helps us get things balanced.

  2. You are so right. Sometimes reaching out for help and/or advice is the best move. Sometimes I need to sit back and reevaluate my workflow to see what is out of whack. I sometimes find that I have allowed other peoples goals and trials to become a part of my schedule to the point that it’s disrupting my work/life balance. Finding good strategic planning tools from other bloggers and keeping my head on straight helps a lot.

  3. Everyone has something to teach us…everyone is good at something…Great idea to reach out to people who inspire us!

  4. Great advice! As a busy mom I have to find balance between work and home. I have been working on asking for help when I need it, instead of doing everything myself and stressing.

  5. Good advice. Asking around is a good thing but because we all have different stuff going on and different priorities what usually ends up working is taking all of that advice and only keeping what works best for you. I loved reading this. Thank you.

  6. I think different things work for different moms, when we compare ourselves to other women, and try to mimic what they are doing, we set ourselves up for failure. Perfect shouldn’t be the goal, happy should

  7. I don’t know how some moms balance it all but I’m totally willing to ask someone who does how they do it!

  8. Balance is so important – I know that the day seems to zip by – here we are in October practically and where has the year gone. I know I need more sleep for sure.

  9. Wow .. when you factor in those hours working Moms don’t get a lot of quality family time. It truly is like walking on a tightrope. Every Family dynamic is different and we should do our best to do things that work best for each situation

  10. These are some great points. There are always people I can learn from. Sometimes it is hard to ask for advice though.

  11. It’s important to just sit back and ask for help (and be willing to listen) when you feel lost, overwhelmed, or frustrated in any situation. It only makes things better!

  12. It’s always good to see the positive in a situation. I love your viewpoint here too.

  13. Sometimes I can’t tell if I’m doing it all, or barely hanging on. I guess it varies. It’s wedding season AND foliage season, so as a photographer – I’m in over my head.
    It’s also holiday season, so as a blogger – I’m in over my head.
    And I have two kids!

  14. Right now I am balancing everything on a needle. I wish I could ask others to help me out but unfortunately that is just not how things work out for me

  15. That is great advice. My problem is that I think I can do it all on my own, I need to definitely ask for help more often.

  16. Perfection is over-rated! For me, it’s God first, people second (they kind of go hand in hand), work third and home last. My coffee table is never clean, the sink may be full of dishes, but we find the time to connect. So far, no one has said that they remember me for my sink of dirty dishes. 🙂

  17. Somedays I do really well with work/life balance. My kids help me out a lot and I take some time just for me. I also have decided that if it’s not that important it can wait. No sense fussing over what doesn’t need to be fussed over.

  18. I think each mom needs to find her own balance. It’s not always easy.
