“It’s Friday and I’m ready to swing, pick up my girls and hit the party scene, tonight, oooh it’s alright, mmmm..” – from the late Aaliyah (“Back & Forth”).
Work & Life balance is essential to get the energy that you need to transform your career and life. I had to learn that the hard way about 8 years into my career when I realized that I worked so hard that I was no longer effective to my clients or for myself. I was on the verge of a mental meltdown.
The lesson I learned was this: You cannot transform yourself or lead others when you have no energy to fuel the change……..It seems to be common sense right? But, it’s not so easy to do when you help others for a living. Lol, I learned to utilize what I advise clients to do: develop boundaries for myself and others.
With that being said, it’s fearless Friday, and I’m fueling my finesse & energy by finding time to spend with friends this weekend. So, I encourage you to work hard, but play hard too:-)
