Work Life Balance


Work life balance is a bitch.
It’s something I teach at work, and while I have a fabulous power point to teach people to better support the way they work, I can’t seem to come to terms with my personal work life balance.
When I’m with my kids, and loving every minute of it, I’m consistently making lists in my head of things I need to do, or I’m rushing to my phone to respond to an email that was sent on a Friday at 6:30pm.
While I’m at work, kicking ass and taking names, all I can think about is my little missy and her screaming with stomach problems while laying in someone else’s arms.
I know that there’s only so much that can be controlled and I have to let go of things I can’t control, but I’m having such a hard time being in the moment and really maximizing that time, wherever I am.
As the world becomes more mobile and anyone can be working at anytime, I struggle with allowing myself time to disconnect. Why should I have to lay my kids down at 6:30 pm to respond to an email? That should be my kids’ time with me! But the sales person in me knows that in the land of sales, service rules all and if I’m not helping move a project forward, then someone else is.
I’m not sure there’s a trick that helps with this, I think it’s all very personal, but I’m really looking forward to coming to terms with this. I fear that with ever changing technology, as soon as I get to my happy place with my work life balance, some new technology will come along and change the game… Again!
