Balance in Life and Work

Balance3aMichael Hyatt tackles the problem of work-life balance. We have all struggled with this to a greater or lesser extent. Achieving any form of balance is a dynamic exercise – ever changing.

Here are Hyatt’s thoughts on this:

A few years ago I took my mentoring group on a ropes course. For one of the challenges, we walked a long stretch of rope that wound around several trees. We had to hold onto each other as we worked our way across the line. 

Here’s what I remember most of all: When we were balanced, it never really felt like we were. Our legs constantly moved and wobbled, and we strained to grip each other and the nearest tree. But we stayed on that line a long time, making little corrections, adjusting our weight, and trying to stay upright. It didn’t feel like balance, but it was. 

That’s exactly how life is, right?

I agree with Hyatt. Balance is dynamic and must be intentional. It is never fully accomplished – it is always a work in progress.

What do you do to maintain a good work-life balance?
