Last week, I began this work-life balance series with Why Balance? 

I asked you to write down the reasons why you want more balance in your life by completing this sentence: 
"If I had more than enough time, energy and other resources, I would _____________." This will keep you motivated while you make and break some habits.  



This week, I want you to write down what you're balancing. 

It seems simple enough but, when I mentor professional women who want to improve their work-life balance, they are often not sure of all the areas of their life that require their attention--and that leads to even more stress.

In yesterday's Work-Life Balance Wisdom webinar for the Network of Executive Women, I asked everyone to consider this list below and then add to it, if necessary. 

Once you do that, go through and rank each one based on where you are and where you want to be. For example, Relationships might be at a 5 because you keep in touch with a few friends but you'd like it to be an 8 because you want to see them more often. So you would rate that a 5/8. It's not about striving for a perfect 10 in each area. This simple exercise will reduce your stress and help you prioritize and determine where you will put your time and energy.  

 Your Balance List

  • Work
  • Family
  • Home
  • Relationships
  • Health
  • Finances
  • Personal Development
  • Fun and Recreation
  • Spirituality/Purpose
  • Service/Making a Difference

LinkedIn Wisdom
Molloy Communications  
Way before I was a professional speaker, I was a marketing consultant. In fact, I started Molloy Communications when I was just a child back in 1988. 

While I focus mostly on speaking these days, there is one area of marketing I continue to do because it's so rewarding for me and in demand by professionals who want to get noticed. I audit LinkedIn profiles. That means I recommend ways to make your profile more effective and write compelling copy and client testimonials to set you apart.

Since you're probably on LinkedIn, I share a strategy each week to help ensure your profile is the best reflection of you.

In your Headline, the line below your name, use as much of the 120-character limit to not only list your title but what you do and who you do it for.


Have You Heard What They're Saying?
"Simple but brilliant! That's Tricia Molloy's 'Work-Life Balance Wisdom' program. 


"Tricia spoke to more than 600 AT&T employees at our headquarters in Dallas and via webcast to AT&T offices throughout the country. She got us to think about our lives in a different way. Her empowering message struck a chord with so many of us, regardless of our level or lifestyle. We followed up the event with a book giveaway to encourage participants to improve their balance by making conscious choices-like cleaning out technical clutter and using positive affirmations. 


"Even a respected senior executive who is known for her commitment to balance said she learned some new strategies that she'll apply right away."
Tiffany Jenkins, Director of Audit Services
