My First Real Blog - Not SP Calendar-Related - Balance
Sunday, January 24, 2010
On this Sunday, as I struggle to fit in alone time for me, normal Sunday phone conversations with family, exercise, and two assignments due by midnight tonight, I find myself musing about balance. No big surprise here, eh?
First, I will give myself a pat on the back where it is deserved. I am grateful that I am aware of balance struggles, that my communication with my partner on this issue is excellent, and as a result, I normally do a good job of balancing between work life, time with my partner, time with myself, time for exercise, time with friends (both alone and with my partner), time for my volunteer work, and my MBA program, which is about to come to an end in mid-April.
With that out of the way, it takes CONSTANT ATTENTION on my part to make all of this happen. I am curious about tools that others might use to keep this important issue - balance - to the forefront in a busy, crazy world with so many demands and so many wonderful ways available to spend your time ...
I welcome any thoughts, tips, ideas ...
Now, off for 15 minutes of exercise before I start studying!
