Work-Life Flow: Making a Life While You're Making a Living
You can have stability and priorities without living within an equation.
You can do better than balance.
You can flow.
A lot people talk about the art of achieving a work-life balance.
Balance means giving equal time and energy to every area of your life. And that requires constant (and exhausting) evaluation, deliberation and calculation. It demands a relentless cycle of appraising and quantifying and justifying in order to get through a too long to-do list in hopes of creating equilibrium, delight and contentment. (I don't know about you, but my head hurts just thinking about it.)
Balance just isn't a realistic goal.
So when I talk to people about personal and professional fulfillment, I don't talk to them about
I talk to them about work-life flow.
Life Coaching: Find Your Best Work-Life Flow
My approach to life coaching is helping people find the best flow between their work and the other parts of their lives. Without sacrificing one for the other.
Making a life is investing in the important aspects of living (and that includes having an income) while embracing what feeds your soul, enriches your experience, nurtures your ability to cultivate wisdom and makes you smile, laugh and cry. It is a full-blooded, full-bodied journey that unfolds over time.
Making a living is earning an income that supports your ability to feed, shelter and clothe yourself and those you care for.
Creating flow between your life and your work is how you develop your ability to make a life while you're making a living.
When your life is in flow, you will . . .
- Have focus and harmony in your life
- Spend your time wisely and complete tasks more quickly
- Quiet that nagging voice in the back of your mind that yammers
about what you should be doing
- Wake up with energy and ideas to bring to the table
- Enjoy spending time with family and co-workers instead of feeling obligated and drained
- Say yes to what matters most to you and feel good about saying no
to what you don't want or need to do
- Give yourself some much needed and deserved attention
(believe me, you have earned it)
Finding your best work-life flow is fulfilling because you are really jazzed about how and where you spend your time and energy.
When you have work-life flow, you make a life and a living with ease.
