Work-Life Balance

Commentary by Peter Shepherd
Work-Life Balance
“We must always change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves; otherwise we harden.” ~ Johann Wolfgang Van Goethe
There's a direct correlation between rest, relaxation and rejuvenation, and a jump in creativity, productivity and better results. We need a chance to rest and focus on activities, emotions and pursuits outside of work. Work, love and play are the great balance wheels of man's being. Obtaining this work-life balance doesn't just benefit our personal life, it benefits our capability at work as well.
“Work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls - family, health, friends, integrity - are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered.” ~ Gary Keller
As Heather Schuck says, "You will never feel truly satisfied by work until you are satisfied by life." Just as personal issues affect your relationships, they equally affect your work life. Personal development is key.
“Most people chase success at work, thinking that will make them happy. The truth is that happiness at work will make you successful.” ~ Alexander Kjerulf
Alexander goes on to say, "The path to happiness at work starts with a simple decision: You must want to be happy. If you don't commit to being happy at work, you won't be. You won't make the choices that make you happy. You won't take the actions needed to get there. You won't change the things that need to change. Happiness at work is about building your skills and your energy to fix the problems, and to create more and more positive experiences." (Read Happy Hour is 9 to 5.)
“You will never find time for anything. If you want time you must make it.” ~ Charles Buxton
As Betsy Jacobson said, "Balance is not better time management, but better boundary management. Balance means making choices and enjoying those choices."
“Balance, peace and joy are the fruit of a successful life. It starts with recognizing your talents and finding ways to serve others by using them.” ~ Thomas Kinkade
The best work isn't work at all, it's what you want to do.

Systemize Your Life ~ by Charlotte Burton

If we all lived in a world where there was no sense of urgency, where everything went according to plan and you had plenty of time to have fun, what would that be like? While this may be a rather enjoyable vision, life just doesn't go that way for most people. What if you could live like that though - and actually achieve the 'work-life balance' that everyone is so keen on these days. Continues...
