“How do you do so much?” I get asked that question a lot. The short answer is I am an alien from another planet and require no sleep.
Actually, that’s not true. But, it is true that I tend to be
juggling balancing a good many things at one time.
You must learn the art of balance. Most of the very interesting people I know have multiple streams of income, multiple interests, and a variety of goals. Life is an oyster, so to speak…I am prying all of mine open.
Timothy Johnson is one of those people. He knows that combating burnout lives in knowing when to say no.
Life Hack has great pointers, as it is often to have. Dustin Wax’s great article on What to Do When It’s All Too Much is no exception.
Don’t know if you are out of balance? Really? Come on – you have to know. It feels just like it does when the tires on your car are out of whack. If you need something more concrete than that, Lisa Gates can help you out.
Many of us are talking about and living right in the middle of “going big.” These times, more than any other time, keeping balance is a necessity. It is important to make sure that the success of Thing 1 doesn’t result in the unintended failure of Thing 2.
What do you do to maintain balance?
