Managing work / life balance Is it all too hard? You need CPR!


Managing work / life balance Is it all too hard? You need CPR!

CPR stands for Community, Passion and Relationships.

If you are passionate about your relationships and community, everything falls into place. You do not need to separate family, work and community but rather integrate them and enjoy the outcome. It’s amazing how your family can help in the business and how the business can help the family and the community. So, take time to relax and breathe and turn your work/life balance into CPR so you are no longer stressed about how many hours you are spending in each section. Just be sure that you and the relationships in your life are happy!

Managing your time is a necessity for all business owners, as your ability to manage time well determines the success of your business and relationships. Time management is the act or process of planning and exercising conscious control over the amount of time spent on specific activities.

Initially time management referred to just business or work activities, but eventually the term broadened to include personal activities as well. A time management system is a designed combination of processes, tools, techniques and methods.

“What does work life balance mean for you?” I remember being asked this question when I was being interviewed for an award and this is where CPR popped out.
