So in the earlier posts this week, we discussed creating a learning agenda to help you become a better person along the way to accomplishing your goals. And I weighed in with the belief that most of the time, you’re better working more on an area you’re great in – rather than spending effort to try and bring all of your weak areas up to the same level as your strong ones.
The best analogy I can give you here in life balance…
How many times do you see authors, bloggers, or coaches telling you to work on your life balance? But balance is a myth, and not something you ever truly want to achieve.
If you have an opportunity to take your company public and sell it to Mark Zuckerberg for a billion dollars, you might choose to consciously get out of balance tilted toward work for a year.
But if your elderly parent received a terminal medical diagnosis and had only 90 days to live, you’d probably choose to take time off from work and consciously get out of balance tilted toward your loved one.
Trying to bring up all areas to an equal level of balance will never create an ideal life.
The real secret to balance is mindfully choosing which areas you want to be out of balance in.
What do you think? Please check in below. And tomorrow we’ll explore how you can apply the same principle to goals.
