When you look at your life, what do you see? Is it well balanced and satisfying, or do you feel overwhelmed by all of the things you need to do?
The term ‘work/life balance’ is used a lot these days, but few people seem truly able to achieve it. For instance, you might have succeeded in dividing your time between work and home life, but at the expense of other important areas, like spiritual fulfillment or community involvement.
This is the inspiration for Stewart Friedman’s new book, “Leading the Life You Want.” Friedman makes a compelling case for integrating four key domains in our life: work, family, community, and spirituality. What’s more, he provides a number of useful exercises that help to strengthen the skills you need to achieve balance in each area.
This audio clip, from our Book Insight on “Leading the Life You Want,” explains how one exercise, called “Ideal Self,” can help to clarify what’s most important to you.
If you’d like to learn some hands-on approaches for balancing your life and living with greater purpose and fulfillment, don’t miss this book.
