On Balancing Life

There’s a lot of talk about “Work-Life Balance”…

I think if there’s no life

There’s no work

Some are doing only work and nothing else…

Others might say “Dude, get a life!”

It’s not either/or. There’s life… and work is a part of it.

But we too often fill up life with work…

But there’s more to life than just work…

We can turn some knobs to adjust how we live life, as in “this week/month/quarter/year I’m doing more of this, less of that”

Turning those knobs can be something well-balanced and thought-out. But it can also be an abrupted change due to unforseen events…

But everything changes, nothing stays the same, so we keep adjusting those dials again as time goes by…

Those areas of life don’t have to be isolated from each other; they can have some overlap!

It’s great to have some shared experiences, with the awareness to keep certain issues on the far edges…

These are some random thoughts and rough drawings I’ve been collecting and figured it might make sense to others out there.

The “knobs and dials” I mention in this post can be adjusted based on Core and Supporting Values.
