Life in balance
Sitting here and writing from my vacation in the Norwegian mountains where I feel relaxed and in balance together with my family. Vacation is, of course, a way of recharging the batteries and get ready for new weeks of chaos at work and with the kids.
One of my goals, set in the app, is that I want more time with my children. Not just on vacations, but regularly every day. The goal has pushed me to make some drastic changes in my calendar and how I prioritize my time.
- I have changed my office so I can work closer to home to reduce time in commuting
- As an entrepreneur, I have always had many projects going. Now I have refocused and decided what projects that are important. NoLimit-app is, of course, number one on the list.
- My work is flexible and I love that, but I have really tried to be present when I’m home. It’s just 5-6 hours a day when we are together, I try not to work during that afternoon and night.
So what is your plan to find work-life balance? Or do you have it already?
So what is work-life balance?
Work-life balance is the term used to describe the balance that an individual needs between time allocated for work and other aspects of life. Areas of life other than work-life can be, but not limited to personal interests, family and social or leisure activities. The term ‘Work-Life Balance’ is recent in origin as it was first used in UK and US in the late 1970s and 1980s respectively. More recently the term has drawn on some confusion, this is in part due to recent technological changes and advances that have made work and work objectives possible to be completed in a 24-hour cycle. The use of smartphones, email, video-chat, and other technological innovations has made it possible to work without having a typical “9 to 5 work day”
