Something I’ve been thinking about recently is the importance of keeping all areas of life healthy. It’s so easy to swing all our attention over to a suffering area only to leave the others completely neglected.
A better approach would be to maintain balance in all areas making steady progress in each.
So, does this mean you leave deals on the table at work to spend quality time with the family? It might sometimes. Or, does it mean not mowing the lawn or getting all the house chores done to get your exercising in? Perhaps.
We must be willing to forfeit reaching our maximum potential in one area if it’s at the expense of the others.
Do I think balance is easy? No. Am I happy with the balance in my life? I’ll say this. I’m getting better everyday.
Question: Do you think it’s possible to live a balanced life?
