Striking a balance between Work & Life

Tags: , , , ,

Striking a balance between work and life is especially hard nowadays because everyone is perpetually on call. To prevent yourself from becoming nervous wrecks one has to necessarily do it.

Betty McWillie, Director of the Career Centre at Christian Brothers University, has found that time management, delegating responsibilities to other qualified workers and having the ability to say no, both to self and others is the key in handling a stressful workload and managing a personal life.

One method which has helped Greg Langston, President of SFI Tennessee, strike a balance, is compartmentalizing his life into four areas: health, wealth, wisdom and relationships.

He says “the key is to realize that at any point of time you can be focusing on one more than the other, but you can’t lose sight of the other ones.”
