Maintaining Life Balance with “The Wheel”
I met with the wife of the CEO/Co-founder of the company I work for this morning to pick her brain a bit about Portland, when we started talking about being balanced. She warned me that as I start to become more involved in the Portland community, it’s a wonderful thing, but it’s very easy to lose your balance and become too involved. Achieving balance in my own life has always been fairly important to me–the balance of work, play, self, and community–the balance of physical, mental, social, emotional/spiritual, and financial health is all very important to me.
I’ve taken some time to step back and look at what my life looks like–when I first started my job, that was the biggest priority, and in the past seven months, I’ve learned to prioritize my health. Now it’s time to add in my community involvement. Overall, my “wheel of life” is decently well balanced, but I’m working towards one full circle. I’m on a mission to see if I can overlap some of these categories and be more effective in achieving all the things I want to do. What does your wheel of life look like?
