When you love your job, it can be easy for your work/life balance to get out of whack. Here are some lessons I’ve learned so far:

  1. Spend time on matters most important to us.

Evaluate how much time you put toward the major domains of your life. Rank what matters most to your life (eg, yourself, family, career, and making a difference in the community). Then see how you’re prioritizing your time and where you’d like to spend more time.

  1. Find crossover opportunities.

Balance doesn’t mean spending the same amount of time on everything. The secret is finding overlap between things you care about.

  1. Start small.

Continuous improvement is important, but so too is setting yourself up for success. Find little victories to give you the confidence to keep going and branch out into other areas you’d like to improve.

  1. Include stakeholders.

For lasting change, make sure to involve those who matter most. Let others know about your goals and what you’re doing to achieve them.

Finding balance isn’t easy. Realize that you’re not sacrificing one passion to satisfy another. When all of life’s domains collaborate, you can find a work/life balance that works for you.
