Learn One Powerful Way To Improve Your Work-Life Balance

It is estimated that we spend our time every week on average:

  • Working 40 hours
  • Sleeping 40 hours

But do you know that you have 72 hours to spare every week or on average 62 hours if you count travelling time to work and back.

In view of the speed of life and the quality of life you want to live, it is important that you spend wisely the remaining 72 hours you have available every week.

Do you wake up happy or have you been complaining a lot recently about what is not working in your life? If you have been complaining about certain aspects of your life it is time to take the Life Balance Assessment so that you can improve the quality of your life and find peace.

I would like to share with you in this blog article the benefits of the Life Balance Assessment and how you can improve dramatically your work-life balance. 

The Life Balance Assessment is a simple and powerful tool which lets you:

  • Evaluate where you are in your life right now
  • Assess your satisfaction with your current life and
  • Identify what aspect of your life is a little bit off

However you can improve it if you choose to do so.

Why is the Life Balance Assessment Important?

Unhappiness is often the result of dissatisfaction in some aspects of your life.

For example, you are dissatisfied with your current job and you might be thinking of a career change.

Or your finances have been a mess for a while and you have not found the courage yet to tackle them.

The purpose of the Life Balance Assessment is to cover 8 areas of your life:

  • Health (Physical/Emotional/Fitness)
  • Career (Profession/Business)
  • Finances
  • Intimate relationship (Partner or Marriage)
  • Relationships (Family/Friends/Business)
  • Spirituality (Growth/Learning)
  • Contribution
  • Fun Time (Adventure/Travel/Hobby/Sports)

Once you have done the Life Balance Assessment, what do your results reflect from a practical view point?

Some areas will show harmony. Others will show disharmony.

If you score less than 5/10 in a particular aspect of your life. This means that this area is imbalanced and needs some improvement so that you can increase the quality of your life. With the awareness of disharmony in a particular aspect of your life you can take remedial action in order to create more balance and to increase your happiness.

However, the general tendency is to go through life with many imbalances or disharmony with the belief that nothing can be done about it to correct it. Should you choose to live a happier and fulfilling life you love it is your responsibility to make it happen.

In practical terms, you can apply these three principles so that you can create positive change in your life:

Principle no. 1: Stop doing what does not work

Principle no. 2: Try something new to see if it works

Principle no.3: Keep doing what works.

If you choose principle no. 2: try something new to see if it works however you struggle to do it alone, I highly recommend you seek the support of a professional life coach or mentor who can help you move forward successfully and confidently.

In the meantime, once you have done the Life Balance Assessment, there is one main thing you can do:

  • You must assess, on a scale of 1-10, how much creating balance in one aspect of your life, which showed imbalance matters to you. If your response is 8/10 (it really matters to you) this means you are ready to do something about it. However, if your response is 2/10 this might mean that another aspect of your life is more important. If so, you must find the aspect of your life which shows imbalance, which truly matters to you and you would like to improve now.

Case study:

One of my Success Checklist Coaching students wanted to work with me on changing her career and boosting her confidence in order to build a successful new business. However, as we went through the Success Checklist Coaching Programme she realized that in fact, her priority was not her career or business but rather her love life. As a result, she wanted to create more balance in her life and feel happy by readdressing the imbalance in her love life.

In order to get better results as you take the Life Balance Assessment it is important that you focus your efforts on what truly matters to you first at this moment in time.
