It doesn't exist, but something better does...
Leading your life in a healthy way is tough. Balancing the intention and impact of our careers, relationships, and parenting while also staying connected with ourselves can feel overwhelming, and sometimes impossible.
There is no sugar coating or filler motivation here when it comes to leadership. We're getting real about what it means to lead the complexities of our success throughout life and work.
A question that we get asked often is, how do we balance the demands of work and life? Simply put, you don't. The very idea that we think we can set us up for a cycle of constant disappointment and stress because it's unrealistic.
Depending on your goals, timeline, and sacrifices required to meet them, you won't always get the feeling of having everything in balance, but you can get a sense of fulfillment.
How to be more realistic?
1. Get clear on how you engage your values at home and work.
2. Make it count.
3. Set healthy boundaries.
Simply, yet each takes time to build out, fail and innovate. It's a process, and it takes time, but it's worthwhile.
