Today I am suggesting we kick up our balancing acts. We all have plans for balance. I have a calendar that strictly delineates time for work, home, school, and all other activities in my life. I planned everything out carefully. The times I put on the calendar are adequate for each task. When I follow the calendar, things run smoothly. Everything gets done and I feel satisfied at the end of the day. However, when I just go with the flow and don’t follow the plan, I fail. In other words, I don’t get everything done. I miss deadlines and I feel dissatisfied at the end of the day. So, I need to kick things up a notch.
I often remind myself of the “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail” line that is common in today’s world. At the same time, I have to start reminding myself that “if you don’t work the plan, the plan won’t work.” In other words, creating a plan that balances home and work is a great first step. It is a crucial and important part of the plan. However, creating the plan is not the end of the matter. Once you set up a plan that works for you, start working the plan. Don’t be upset if it takes a few weeks for you to get the plan to work for you. Kick things up a notch!
We all work in one form or another. It is crucially important to find a way to balance the obligations to work and home. If you are not satisfied with the balance between the two, stop complaining and do something. Kick things up a notch. For me, I am going to start sticking to my schedule like wet on water!
It is fantastic to find a way to kick it up a notch when it comes to balancing home and work. So, the question for you this fantastic day is how can you kick your balancing act up a notch?
