As the saying goes, “there’s no better time than now”. Go ahead and explore the world around you! You only have one life to live so here's our guide on how to address those excuses that cause your work-life balance blues!
There will always be a situation that won't go how you plan it to be. You just have to find a way to deal and view it as an avenue to grow. Try to work out a pattern in terms of your workload and plan to squeeze in a vacation during your off-peak months. Always remember that taking a break once in a while won't hurt anybody.
What are families and friends for? There's no way you’ll spend your whole life trying to make your business work all the time. Invest on training your staff. Taking a time off can also be a good gauge as to how your team is performing without your supervision. There will always be someone out there willing to do well for you if given the chance. If you really have the welfare of your business in mind, the value of responsibility and trust is important.
Yes, you need to work eight hours a day but no, you don’t need to work 8 hours a day for the whole year round. Take a day or a week off from work. Schedule a vacation on a country you have never seen before. Shop till you drop at Macau’s biggest hotel or join the scramble at the world’s busiest intersection in Shibuya, Tokyo. You can never go wrong with a vitamin sea adventure at Coron, Palawan or a calm and serene staycation at Bali, Indonesia. Think of it as the best way to recharge our energy for when you go back to your work desk.
You may be safe and comfy inside the office, but you’ll never feel the exhilarating sense of happiness if you don't go out of your shell. Find the time to give yourself a makeover. Travel. Try a new activity. Take a little risk and allow yourself to fail because there’s no fun in riding a roller coaster that only goes straight.
