Transcript of Work-Life Balance

Putting "balance" in perspective
What do you love to do?
What do you do that you don't love (or like)?
How do you decide to say "yes" or "no" to a request?
How do you balance your passions with your overall personal and professional goals?
What is it?
Work–life balance is a broad concept including proper prioritizing between “work” (career and ambition) on one hand and “life” (health, pleasure, leisure, family and spiritual development) on the other. A related, broad term also used is "life balance.”

Covey's Quadrants
Reflecting on Goals
Think about 3-5 goals you have over the the next 6 months, 12 months, and five years.
Do you have a mix of goals (personal, career, health, learning, etc.)?
Wheel of Life
Share one area where you feel mostly balanced. What have you done to make this a priority?

Share an area where you would like to improve? How will you regain balance? What shifts in focus will be needed to improve that area?
With a partner share the following:
What are your key accomplishments?
How do these accomplishments reflect your priorities?
Where do you want your focus to be in the next 5 years?
Group 1: How do you decide to say yes/no to a request? What are some ways to say "no"?
Group 2: What strategies do you use to manage your time effectively?
Group 3: How do you avoid procrastination? How do you prioritize tasks?
Group 4: What activities or approaches help you manage stress? How do you avoid feeling overwhelmed?
Distinguish between glass balls and rubber balls
Level 5 - Time Management
Focus on execution - getting the right things done well
Focus on leadership tasks - building relationships of trust, managing big picture projects, making progress toward long-term goals.
Ask yourself "how do I find the discipline to do those key important tasks that I should do?"
Work to make those key tasks habits (21-28 days)
Pareto Principle
80% of value is concentrated in 20% of activities
20% of activities produce 80% of the result
The first 20% of time spent on a project produces 80% of the result
Learning to monotask instead of multitask
