Gaining – and re-gaining – that elusive work/life balance
Many people imagine balance as a perfectly aligned equal distribution of every aspect of life, resting on a fulcrum. It’s precise and graceful, even. It’s exact and still. Very, very still, and not terribly life-like.
I suggest that balance is, instead, full of movement and motion. It’s as though we are a tight rope walker, dancing across a wire, carrying an umbrella and a shopping bag, talking on our cell phone in a windstorm. At least, that’s a bit more like my life.
At any moment on your work/life balance walk, there is push, pull, wind and new items for us to carry. It’s about knowing where there is room to shift and dance along the wire. And where there isn’t. In this session, we’ll talk about balance and look at some practical ways to know where – and for how long – we can stretch, twist or reach in any direction, while keeping our balance.
I bring my years of science and spreadsheets together with incense and energy to help busy people create balanced growth. With one role in science, standards and project management and another that combines a passion and business in solution-focused coaching, Reiki and mindful practice, I support forward-looking folks to define plans and find epiphanies while effectively and mindfully managing change. It’s about connecting the dots and walking the balance of career, health, life, family & fun. Learn more about me online at http://jenndanielson.com
