Easter is for the family. Do you have that Work, Life, Balance in your life?
I like symphony better, because balance reminds me of a scale, it’s static and never moves once it gets to the number. A symphony however, carries different notes like an orchestra band playing, it all comes together to make a beautiful tune. But, since work, life, balance is the lingo, we’ll use that for now.
This has become a huge issue for employers, and it’s one of the hottest topics these days. They’re realizing the effects from not having employees fully engage when at work, and that’s causing a drop in production and an increase in stress and sickness. We’re make out to believe that if we’re not working umpteen hours and operating at the heart attack level everyday at work, we’re not giving our all and doing our best. However, at the end of the day, we’re humans that’s made out of skin and bones, and when skin and bones decide it’s enough, the repercussions can be devastating, our families and job suffers, and this is when your employer feel the effects. We all want to do our best in all of our performance no matter where we are or what we’re doing. We want to be good parents, good employee and a good friend but, what is good? How much do you need to do that’s constitute good? What is our best?.. Is there a best gauge or a bestometer that measures our output of energy while at work? While being a parent? While being a friend? etc. We’re measured by what we do but, is that fair? What we do never seems enough or comes to an end. There’s always more work at work, always more parenting home, always need from a friend, always, always, always, the always never ends.
I believe we should always strive to do better and be better, but we have to know our limits. Our body can only take so much and our mind can only handle so much stress. Therefore, only we know when we’re at our limit, and that’s usually when we start feeling a bit overwhelm, that’s a good sign we’re hitting our limits. This is when we need to step back and take a relax moment, walk away and shift our focus to something else. No one knows us like us. Only we know when we’re hitting our limits and when we’re feeling stress, so it’s up to us to take a breather and make the changes. We need to learn to be satisfy with our performance and have gratitude for what we have and where we are.
Tony Horton, the P90X fitness guru says, “do your best and forget the rest” When you can truly do that and feel good about your performance and yourself, you’re starting to build balance, creating a symphony in your life. You’ll be a happier person, your family will be happier and your company will be happy with your performance.
It’s Easter holiday weekend, this is a great family holiday, be there with the family, not physically, but mentally. Your family needs all of you.
