Work – Life Balance

Balance between work and home is one of the biggest challenges faced by professionals today. And perhaps no one faces as tough a course as young mothers (and fathers).

The following three keys are admittedly vague, but that is on purpose. It’s designed to let your mind wander as you consider individual solutions to the challenges you face. Once you have the outline filled in, you can look for specifics.

Define what success means to you.
This is where it starts. Only you can determine what will make you successful. Your vision of success may call for more (or less) work time. That’s fine. You’re the one who has to be happy with the result.

Determine what works for you.
With success defined, you can find out what works for you. This is also a very individual thing. What works for someone else may not work for you. It is also a process – try things and see how you like them. As you do, your vision of success may change. That’s fine, too!

Don’t let anyone dissuade you.
Along the way, you’ll probably get plenty of advice. Most of it unsolicited. It doesn’t matter. You know what you’re trying to achieve. You know how you’re going about it. Stick to your plan and revise it only when you find a better alternative!
