 Let’s talk about Balance. It is one of those things that we all strive for. Often it feels like the Carrot on the Stick – forever JUST out of reach….When was the last time you ran into someone and in that quick conversation either one or both of you said “I’m good – I’m so balanced!”  Never – we are all living such busy, hectic lives.

 Balance comes in many different forms. It could be keeping our pipelines at a consistent level in business to reduce the periods of too much work to be completed in any given week and the resulting lull the next. With spring right around the corner many of us will be spending more leisure time outside. In order to do so we need to find that unicorn of Work/Life Balance.

 I remember reading somewhere that Balance isn’t a level to be achieved; it’s not somewhere  you get to and just stay balanced.  It is a result of all the little decisions that we make every day.

 If you are on any sort of social media you are running across the ‘2017 – The Best Year Ever.’ That got me thinking – What would make it ‘The Best Year Ever?’  So I made my list – I would recommend you do that too. Then you can prioritize and make sure that all those little decisions you are making everyday are keeping you in balance and working toward ensuring that 2017 really is the ‘Best Year Ever!’

Good Luck!
