Today we’re going to talk about some different principles on how to achieve equilibrium.

1. Allocate Your Time

Allocate your time according to your values and the top priorities in your life. Now, this sounds simple, but when setting goals around this area, this is one of the most difficult pieces of the puzzle. You need to assess if you’re spending your time in ways that are consistent with what’s important to you. It should be obvious to other people on the outside when you do so, because other people should be able to look at your life, observe what you do, look at how you spend your time, and tell you what you value.

If you say your health is important, for example, one would expect to see physical activity. If you say your family is so important, one would expect to see you spending quality time together. So, are you spending your time in ways that reflect your priorities?

The more congruent you are with what you say and what you do, the more equilibrium you’ll experience. Many of my audience members over the years have told me, “You know, I’m the last of the baby boomers, and it gets very difficult to make time for myself because I was brought up to be a person who works extremely hard for the company. Many times I feel guilty for leaving a large amount of work on my desk to go home and spend time with my family. Then I also feel guilty for not being there all the time for my family.”
