Work & Life: Where’s the Balance

For a better part of a two years, I have enjoyed a rather relaxed 40 hour a week job.  During this time, I was able to achieve my Master's Degree, read, research, blog, mountain bike, trail run, lose some weight and the list goes on. . .and on. . .and on.

However, I find myself in a quandary of trying to regain the balance that I once had as the pressures of work increase, the church life moves in new directions, my personal life takes off (this is a good thing), and life just sort of explodes.

Finding balance is key for a leader's success.  I have pushed the 60 hr work week once already in the past few weeks & I absolutely hate it.  I understand that work is how we make a living, but it does not define my life & I am bound and determined to not lose my balance.  I will submit to the projects that need to be completed in a timely fashion.  I will rise early & enter the office early, but not so that I can work later, but rather so that I can leave at a normal time (like say after my nine hours – since we are on a 9/80). 

During our last major project, I gained far too much weight, let life & work slip severely out of balance, and I am determined to not let that happen a 2nd time.  Therefore, I shall work more efficiently, understand my limits & walk away, and always reserve time for restoring the soul – without the soul, how can we function?  Work is part of life, it should not be your life!
