Don’t neglect important areas of your life.
Obsessing over certain areas of your life and neglecting others will eventually backfire and will lead to a decline in performance. Striving for balance in terms of the quality, not quantity, of time you set aside for each area will make you feel more complete, happy, and satisfied.
- Check your work-life balance at the end of the week
