Approximately 70% of Americans struggle to find a work-life balance that works for them. When you’re an entrepreneur and a leader, that challenge is all too real. Often, it feels like work is all you do, because after all, your business is your baby, and it takes hard work to raise a baby. While there are certain joys that come with building a successful career, every once in a while, burnout happens and you have to reassess your situation. Here are our top five tips for finding a work-life balance that works for you!
Set your own parameters for success. What does it mean for YOU to be successful? What are the values that are important to you? Write it DOWN, and then use that as guideline for all the decisions you make in life so that you never find yourself drifting away from what matters.
Just like you have work and career goals, set some passionate life goals! What’s on your lifetime bucket-list? What are some experiences that you refuse to miss out on? Write them down and create a tangible plan (timeline included) for how you will achieve this. One of the best things you can do is enroll a buddy into doing this exercise with you. Find someone who understands your goals and will keep you honest and accountable. These are the things that you’ve stated that you want–now go make that happen.
Never underestimate the power of human connection. When times get tough, know that you can always fall back on your loved ones to guide you in the right direction. They can offer you an outsider’s perspective and you can trust that they always have your best interests at heart. Make time for your social life and create a network that brings you joy.
