How to achieve better balance
This is really a personal list to think through strategies to achieve better balance.
1. Say No
I can easily open my mouth and fail to engage brain and find myself committed to all sorts. I need to take a step back, think before I speak.
2. Don’t offer
I like to help. But I can overload myself and underestimate how much time and effort things take.
3. Work to rule
I'm not exactly doing this but I work far more hours than I should. I'm looking to find a way to ease back and work more reasonable hours.
4. Time for me
I've prioritised work over things I love to do. I need to make time for some of my own stuff too.
5. Work less
Less is more. I keep reading about improving productivity by working less. This is what I'm aiming for.
