When your travels take you into unknown territory, it pays to watch the warning signs. Life has skidded onto the shoulder, so I’m taking heed of the signs saying I need to slow down. Obsessive working is one of the signs, so even if goals are met, I press on like I’ve still got fifty million things to accomplish before tomorrow. Sometimes, this obsessive behavior makes me miss my goals because I get too focused on one project.
Writing is a passionate occupation, but the warning signs of obsession are clear. So, I’ve chosen to give myself a mini-vacation, of sorts. Every goal gets cut or cut in half for two weeks so I can walk away for hours at a time and focus on other things like home and family.
I hope to have found a new sense of balance by the time school starts two weeks from tomorrow. Then, we’ll start a new routine with a fresh outlook.
How do you establish balance between work and your family life?
