When you are successful in business or when you are at the top of the corporate ladder, life outside your career becomes more challenging. One minute you are called for a board meeting, and the next you are rushing for a conference call with a client. You extend your working hours to review business reports, and when you are home, your mind is on the business expansion plan.
Then, before you know it, you are missing your mom’s birthday or even your own. You’ve forgotten about your daughter’s first piano recital. You and your spouse haven’t celebrated your wedding anniversary together because you totally forgot about it.
I, Ike Madu, have 3 tactics for you to have a work-life-family balance.
Establish Your Why
Ask yourself why you are doing what you are doing. Productivity isn’t about working from sunrise to midnight. It is about accomplishing your goal. Knowing your goal will help you find motivation in accomplishing it.
Take A Break
Yeah, you have a deadline to catch. Taking a day off would be a waste of time as it might ruin your schedule. But, a single day away from the hustle and bustle office life is more than enough to reset your mind and body. This will improve your focus.
Delegate Your Tasks
Delegating the task makes the work easier. As you entrust the responsibility to them, your employees will feel empowered that you have confidence in them.
These steps are quite simple but require a consistent effort to achieve them. Practice more often and eventually, you will feel the balance.
