Finding Balance pt. 4

Finding Balance pt. 4

This is my final post about finding work/life balance, at least for now.  With that said, it’s something we have to address every so often because life evolves and schedules change.

To recap, during the first step, I assessed my current schedule challenges and what I wanted to change.  In the second step, I evaluated my options to successfully make changes to get more of what I lacked.

STEP THREE - IMPLEMENT

The final step to find work/life balance is implementation.  While evaluating my options (step two), I identified that changes to this blog was the ONLY opportunity I had to obtain the work/life balance I sought.  Implementation, at least for me, is a bit of a trial-and-error process all on its own.  If I’m being honest, I was at step three last week, right after completing step two.  I mean, who can wait to implement solutions that they expect will improve their life?!  Although I didn’t post this final step until today, I’m sure it was evident in the blog posts in between that it was on my mind, whether in the forefront or back.

I think it’s important to note for anyone seeking to find balance themselves that this effort doesn’t happen overnight, nor is it linear (as my interruption in posts about it substantiates).  I chose not to post this final installment over the weekend for two primary reasons.  One, I wanted some time to think about my options and ensure there wasn’t something I was overlooking.  Two, I “test drove,” if you will, some of the options I considered.  I desperately needed a break this weekend from writing about it, but all the while, tried out a few things here and there.

Since evaluating my options in step two, I am much more relaxed.  Now, in all fairness, it’s only been three days.  But, I have high hopes that these changes are more than just short-term solutions.  However, I will continue to implement changes as I need to in order to maintain and keep balance.  If you, too, are trying to find balance, I hope that you find some of this process useful.

Be open to what comes.
