When I was staying at the Westin Hotel in Los Angeles for the NEW Leadership Summit last month, I noticed the pretty, green, leaf-shaped soap they provided. What caught my attention were the two words on the packaging. Restore Balance. Hmmmm.
As I showered that morning, I thought, "Wouldn't it be great if it were that easy? Use this soap and the rest of your day will be in perfect balance. You'll begin with a vigorous workout at the gym, get that mission-critical project completed by noon, enjoy a healthy lunch with a key client, call a dear friend who needs your support, and make it to your child's recital that evening. Fully present every step of the way." There is no soap or magic pill we can take to do that. While it isn't easy to improve our balance, it is simple.

Here's What To Do

We're all way too busy and some of that busyness is completely unnecessary. Do you agree? Many of us get addicted to a hectic pace, thinking that busyness translates to productivity and importance. It often doesn't.


Think about where you spend and often waste your time in a typical day, week and month. Make a list of all those things that you can consider giving up. From household chores you dread and toxic people who drain your energy to professional associations that don't support your career goals. Choose three of these to release or delegate.


Then, think of one thing you've been "too busy" to do that would enhance your life and contribute to your balance. Perhaps it's taking a dance or computer class, nurturing a promising relationship, or leading a significant initiative at work. 


Notice the formula of minus three, plus one? You'll benefit professionally and personally from the energy and clarity that comes when you keep some breathing room in your typical schedule, instead of filling all your time again.


What will you give up and gain? Share it on my Facebook page or reply back to me. I love hearing from you!
