Momentum helps us stay on course. It’s the same for all the corrections and adjustments we make along the way.

Key Ideas

Balance is not the same as rest

It’s not about rest and finally getting that much-needed break, though it does include these aspects.

Balance is about distributing demands so we can stay on track. And sometimes that takes a lot of work.

Think about your life. What is really important to you? How would you like to live your life?

Write down the things that are truly important to you, the things that ten years from now...

The things you are doing every day
  • Write them down. For example, wake up, eat breakfast, go to work…
  • Highlight the tasks that you do daily that are in line with your priorities.
  • The highlighted stuff is the important stuff that you do every day. Everything else is urgent.
Cut down on the urgent stuff
  • Some “urgent” activities will just need to go. Maybe you can wait until later after all to check your picture on Facebook.
  • Some “urgent” activities will need to be delegated. Your assistant, if you have one, could actually pay that bill.
