14 Things You Absolutely Must Do to Get Work-Life Balance

For more than fifteen years I have conducted research among both those who feel that their lives are balanced, and those who believe that their lives are way out of whack. I have seen that those in balance and those out of balance are not separated by education, upbringing, marital status, or even income. So, the obvious question: What separates them? Here’s the short answer: The actions they take day in and day out.

  

Life is sweetest when lived in balance. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! For more than fifteen years I have conducted research among both those who feel that their lives are balanced, and those who believe that their lives are way out of whack. I have seen that those in balance and those out of balance are not separated by education, upbringing, marital status, or even income. So, the obvious question: What separates them? Here’s the short answer: The actions they take day in and day out.

What I share with you below are 14 of the actions taken by those who enjoy the benefits of work-life balance. How powerful are these actions? They are so proven that I recommend them to those I executive coach.

1. Write down the 100 things you want to do, be, have, or experience during your time on this earth. Dream big. When you finish this list, you will be focused and more energized about each day of your life.

2. Develop your vision book. A vision book is a special book that contains words, pictures/images, and other stuff that represents a visualization of the life you seek to live. Your brain will work 24/7 for you and attempt to achieve everything contained in your subconscious mind. The key to leveraging your amazing brainpower is to keep vivid images of what you want your life to be constantly fresh in your “mind’s eye.” Your vision book does this for you. I have developed a “My Vision Book” that, when you complete it, will balance your every day and keep you focused on the life you want to live. Get your dream on!

3. Decide who you love. Carve out time each day to let that person — or those people — know how you feel about them.

4. Develop your 10 major Life Goals. Keep the list with you always and refer to it frequently. You will find it easier to stay on track and be happy with the track that you’re on.

5. Limit your TV watching. TV viewing — with few exceptions — takes away your energy, your time, your initiative, and your engagement in real life. Surely you have more important things to do in your life than be a couch potato?
