Balance is a Waste of Time

"Work-life balance was a mistake from the start. Because we don't really want balance. We want satisfaction ."-Matthew Kelly, author 

Summer is here and the kids are out of school.  How will you find the harmony between work and life?

Balance is a sticky subject among many people. We have careers, partners, children, family commitments, charity work, classes, hobbies, spiritual connection time and big desires to improve our health.  Do you feel you are juggling too much?
How can one possibly balance so many things?
I'm going to let you in on a little secret here: You can't.

Balance; is it a Myth?

"Harmony" is an easier goal than balance.
Definition of Harmony: A pleasing combination or arrangement of different things; internal calm. 

Harmony is when everything is co-existing in a spirit of cooperation. But whatever you want to call it; harmony, balance, or "fitting it all in"- there is a secret to doing more of what you want and less of what you don't want.
Want to hear it?
I just need to warn you that although the equation sounds simple, it actually takes massive willpower to execute. 
It also requires that you get absolutely clear on what you want your life to look like, and what you do not want in your life.  And remember; never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.
Ready? OK, here's the secret:

Not everything has an equal space in our lives and that's what balance implies.  Decide what is really important in your life and give those things priority. Be aware of the difference between your wants and your needs.
For example; you might want a sparkling clean house but do you need it?  Will you be sacrificing the things that should take priority like your family, self-care and restorative activities?
  • First ask yourself what isn't serving you. What doesn't need to be in your life? What is dragging you down? Keeping you awake at night?
  • Have you identified a few things? Now get rid of them. (Or fix them. Now.)
  • Next, ask yourself what you want in your life; or in this week or day? What do you want to accomplish? What do you want to do? Who do you want to be with? Focus your energy on these things. Anything that doesn't fit into this larger scheme... let it go (or learn how to say "no")
Ready to dive in and make a few changes? Give these tips a try and see how much more harmonious your life can be. No balance required.
