Work Life Balance – Learn New Tricks



It is fantastic to know there is always something new to learn to in the work-life balance battle. There are always books, articles, documentaries and news reports on the struggle to balance work and life. These stories always amaze me because they are usually so drastically dismal or ridiculously optimistic. The reality is that it is hard to balance work and life, but it can be done. Like most things worth having, finding a balance between work and life is hard but well worth the effort. Most people work because they have to work in order to provide a living for themselves and their families. At the same time, people want to live lives that are fulfilling, satisfying and enjoyable.

The truth is work and life can be balanced.  It is a matter of give and take, trades, giving more to one side and less to the other side. Work-life balance means sometimes you get it right and sometimes you mess it all up. It means realizing that whether you succeed or fail on any given day, doesn’t matter. You are in a long distance marathon, not a short sprint. When balancing work and life, don’t be upset at the failures along the way. Instead, learn as many tricks as possible and keep moving forward.

Life is all about learning new things to do and new ways to do old things. One of the greatest things in the world is to learn something new. There is a certain joy, pleasure, and thrill that learning gives us. It is important to remember that it is possible to learn something new every day if you try. Contrary to the popular saying, old dogs can learn new tricks! Do not wait for the lessons to come to you, instead go and actively seek out new ways to balance work and life. For example, if you have a friend or co-worker who looks like she is making it work, give her a compliment and ask her how she is getting it done. Go to the local library and check out new books and magazines for new ideas on getting things to run more smoothly at home and work.

An important thing to remember about learning new ways to balance work and life is that not every method works for every person. This means that if you learn a new way to make it all better that does not work for you, stop using that method and go find another. Keep in mind that when you want to win, if the first thing you try doesn’t work, try something else. You can find a way to make your work and life balance and exist harmoniously. It may take time or trial and error, but you can do it!



In conclusion, it is fantastic to know there is always something new to learn to in the work-life balance battle. So, the question for you this fantastic day is, what would you like to learn about balancing work and life?

  • Life is full of lessons and I think even the difficult parts are as well. But you're absolutely right, no matter how difficult thing get we just have to keep going.

  • who really gets thing correct every try. lord knows i don't. we have to remember that, but it's hard.

  • I feel as if just when I find a system that works, I need to change it again. Life is like living on a tightrope. (And that's okay with me.)

  • This is such a good post - I remember those days when there was never enough time.

  • It is so hard to find that balance, especially when you work at home. But you're right -- you just have to keep trying!

  • Finding that balance...Something I'm forever trying to do!

  • This balance is something I struggle for constantly as a WAHM. I'm starting to wonder if it's not really a balance, just a careful juggling act!

  • Well I needed to hear this today! My work life balance is a mess! Time to reevaluate.

  • I'm ok with balance because my kids are grown and flown, so there's really nothing to balance. However, I do need to stretch my wings and learn more things!
