One of my themes for 2014 was balance.
How can I talk about balance without talking about priorities?
In fact, it’s nearly impossible to have balance without getting the priorities straight.
For instance, if I prioritize by due date, I’ll certainly overlook the things in my life that are important yet lack a definitive deadline. My dog will never ask for playtime before “end of day Friday.”
By contrast, if I prioritize by what I FEEL like doing, I may let some of the less interesting projects go and consequently let down my clients that are counting on me.
I suppose the only way to achieve balance in life, is to have a healthy mix of the things that you want to do and things you need to do.
