How do I find work life balance?

That certainly is the question that perhaps a lot of people are trying to find the answer too.

Its not just related to people that have had a career for years but in fact is one of the burning questions that young professionals have. I mean you have just got your degree and your putting your all into your new job and making sure that you impress your boss.

Balancing Work Life

It can also be a question that people ask themselves who already have their careers established but they aren’t finding the right sort of job satisfaction. So what is the universal answer to this dreaded question.

Well i really can’t answer that! But i can give a few pointers that might help in addressing this equation.

  1. Rethink your 9 to 5
  2. Stop doing tasks that can be delegated or don’t help you get to your goal
  3. Stop running around
  4. Start running around… (this isn’t a typo)
  5. Learn to relax

Okay, thats a list that you think you may already know of intact think your doing it already, but bear with me for a little longer and let me explain.

 

  • Rethink Your 9 to 5

I am not actually asking you to go to your boss and demand you work less hours, no. But what i am asking is are the hours you attach to your job, actually being productive? Maybe adding another hour would be beneficial. I once read someone waking up 1 hour earlier a day and they did nothing! Yes, actually nothing, they got up and just sat around. In the end this one hour of doing nothing, but intact relaxing actually put them in a better mind set for the day and it made them more productive. So give that a go.

The Degree Is Yours, Professional Life Beckons. Now Is The Time To Party To Celebrate.

So you have done it! All those long hours slaving away through to the early hours of the morning as you put the final touches to your assignments. Your thankful now that you don’t have to juggle 2 jobs as you budget your way through university.

You now have that all important degree, your confidence is sky high even though your under mountains of debt, you can not wait to face the big wide world.

Professional working life is the road you are about to embark on. But have you asked yourself if your ready to face this and actually have you rewarded yourself for all the struggles that you faced in the last few years.

End of Year Ball

I mean when i left university and i was about to start the professional work life, i knew that i had to reward myself. I knew that i had to actually acknowledge all the struggles that i had endured to get to the point of where i was today.

YOU NEED TO DO THIS!!! 

Why?

The reason why you need to do to this is because life is too short and life should be enjoyed and when life starts to get hard, you dig in deep, you go that extra mile and achieve what you want. After you get there, make sure you step back and give yourself that reward, its like a internal motivational tool.

It has to do with internal programming! By doing this little exercise you can actually spur your subconscious self to get to where you want to be. So when next time you hit a little obstacle or a bump in the road of success, just remember that after experiencing a little struggle there will always be a reward at the end of the journey.

You may ask what can this reward be?

Well infact it can be anything you want it to be. It all depends on you and the situation that you find yourself in. It can be a new jumper that you have wanted for a long time. It can be a night out that you need! I mean remember the days when you would study all night and all day for a days on end until the deadline, what did you do when you handed the assignment in?

YOU WENT OUT WITH FRIENDS AND PARTIED!!!

Yes that exactly what you did. Most people will tell you that its needed and that its a way to “let off steam and relax”. Well in laymen’s terms you are correct. If you step back that is actually what your doing, physically of course.

But if you were to actually analyse this your in fact “rewarding” yourself for the effort that you have put into achieving the desired result. Don’t stop doing this! Its a must you carry on no matter how big or small the reward maybe. This action or ‘gift’ as i like to call it will always break up the monotony of hard work.

I remember the time when i was about to become a proper young professional and being my life on climbing the corporate ladder.

It was coming to year end and we were about to Finnish university forever and to celebrate this fact i with a few friends were going to go out in style by attending the end of year ball. Its like a party or even like what the american’s call, a prom night. But as a reward to myself i was going to do this in STYLE!

I got booted and suited for the event. I even spent more then i wanted on my outfit. But guess what i? I didn’t care. I had spent that last year of my degree, working 3 jobs to put myself through the last 1/3 of my degree and this was my reward.

New shoes , shirt and belt from Gucci, new suit from Paul Smith, i even had my haircut a few hours before the event. I was going out in style and to make sure this was a night to remember, i even got myself a limo.

Yes, you heard that right! I booked a limo to take me, my girlfriend and a few other couples to our end of year ball in a LIMO!

I was so excited and so stoked that i had achieved the goal of getting my degree, getting myself ready for the new world of corporate life as well as putting myself out there.

This was my time to celebrate! So for my End Of Year Ball, i was going to go all out. Why did i go all out? Well i see life as a balance and if i had put 3 years of my life into getting a degree, then i was going to put all the expense that i could afford  into celebrating the 1 night as my REWARD!

The limo was great. I was picked up and ferried from my then rented home in Epsom, Surrey and driven through the bright lights of London all the way to the venue of the night.

The limo chauffeur was a very polite person and timely. Even though he was slightly older that i thought. He was a great person. He listened to our requests. Understood we were newly graduated young professionals who were about to have a our first experience of working life and he made sure the start of this party was going to be one to remember. From all the right drinks in the bar to the right tunes on the stereo system, he did his upmost.

This was a true A1 service! I couldn’t say anything bad about the night. I had a great time!

So if your ever thinking of giving yourself a reward, may i a suggest a limousine rental for a night is a great way to be pampered. But it for a end of year ball, anniversary, or a fun night out with friends and family. You won’t be upset that you did. If your ever in the London area and need a limo service GO HERE and check what this company can do for you.

Until next time… bye for now.. :)
