There are lots of articles out there on the subject of work-life balance. There’s even more talk about it. Recent survey results uncovered the fact that many employees don’t even think it exists. So what percentage of us really achieve it?
If your goal is to simplify your life, here are your productivity tips for this month:
1. Work management. Determine what’s important. Every day…several times a day. Priorities can be moving targets in today’s fast-paced business environment. So what was important first thing in the morning may change by 9AM. Keep revising by asking yourself “Am I working on what’s most important’ and try to spend 75% of your time there.
2. Life management. Determine what’s important. To you, for your family, for those you care about. This vision helps you become more focused on executing on priorities at work. So you can get to the things that are important in life. Without a clear vision and the emotional trigger it creates, we tend to work 24/7.
3. Stress management. Determine what’s important. Face it…you can’t do everything. Even with technology and support staff. If you focus on life and work priorities, stress management may become a thing of the past for you. Time management is about all parts of your life-not just the stressful ones.
