Healthy Balance between Work and Life

Healthy Balance between Work and Life

A healthy life must have balance, however; while your career is important, it is not your entire life. Actually, you will be a more complete manager if you are a more complete person. You cannot separate the two.

When you ask people what they do, they will automatically tell you what they do for a living. They might be a dentist, accountant, lawyer, salesperson, manager, barber, or trucker. But we are all so much more than what we do professionally or if we’re not, we should be.

Healthy Balance between Work and Life

There are many sad stories of people who retire and lose their sense of identity and self-worth. Their job was their life, and when they retire, they lose their sense of purpose. A person who has this reaction to retirement is not a complete person.

Their interests, other than their families, all revolve around their careers. It’s understandable to miss your work, especially if you enjoyed it, but retirement should never be the end of all meaningful life.

A person whose only interest is the job is one dimensional, and a one-dimensional person is not as effective a manager as a multidimensional person. I’m not referring to your first few months on the job.

But after you have successfully passed through the breaking-in period, you need to broaden your interests and your activities.

Be Social and Help your Community

The primary objective is to be of assistance to your community and the cause of the profession, but there are ancillary benefits. You become known within your community and your profession. You enhance your base of knowledge, and you make contacts and friends. That not only makes you a broader-based manager but also a more promotable one. And the higher you go in the organization, the more important leadership becomes.

Be a Well-Informed Citizen

While it is vital that you read about your business, it is also important that you are a well-read person. A manager should be a well-informed citizen and should know what is going on in her city, state, and nation. That means keeping up to date by reading news websites, newspapers, news magazines, industry blogs, and trade magazines. A manager needs to be well-informed about the world; what is going on in the world does affect your organization.

Healthy Balance between Work and Life

You must have the ability and determination to separate work from the rest of the day. It is important to be able to leave work at work and go on with the rest of your life. We need to have interests, hobbies, and other things to do outside of work.

A fitness program that meets your needs and keeps you interested is of great value. Exercise is an excellent way to relieve stress.

Finally do not let the work you take home overtake your personal life, which you need to preserve in order to maintain a healthy balance.
