Balance Is a Waste of Time

Work-life balance was a mistake from the start. Because we don’t really want balance. We want satisfaction.” – Matthew Kelly, author

Balance is a sticky subject among many people. We have careers, partners, children, family commitments, classes, hobbies … plus big desires to improve our health. How can one possibly balance so many things?

I’m going to let you in on a little secret: You can’t.

“Harmony” is an easier goal than balance.

Harmony means everything is co-existing in a spirit of cooperation. But whatever you want to call it–harmony, balance, or “fitting it all in”–there is a secret to doing more of what you want and less of what you don’t want.

Although the solution sounds simple, it requires that you get absolutely clear on what you want your life to look like, and what you do not want in your life:

  • First, ask yourself what isn’t serving you. What doesn’t need to be in your life? What is dragging you down? Keeping you awake at night?
  • Have you identified a few things? Now get rid of them (or fix them–now).
  • Next, ask yourself what you want in your life, or in this week or this day. What do you want to accomplish? Who do you want to be with? Focus your energy on these things. If anything doesn’t fit into this larger scheme, let it go (or learn how to say “no”).

Ready to dive in and make a few changes? Give these tips a try and see how much more harmonious your life can be. No balance required.
