Here are some quotes and tips from Steve McClatchy:
Balance is a feeling you get when you are satisfied with where you are and where you are going in life.
The best way to combat burnout and stress — and achieve a feeling that your life is balanced between what you have to do and what makes you feel alive — is to cotinuously seek improvement in some area of your life.
Effective prioritizing is not based on deadlines or urgency. it is based on results. Effective prioritizing assigns value and order to events in advance of their occurrence and requires that you ask some new questions: What results does this task produce in your life? Which activities in your life produce the greatest results?
Just as you need to organize your physical belongings to remain in control of your physical space, you also need to organize your information resources to maintain control of your responsibilities and your time.
The two categories of motivation are fear and desire. We fear the pain of consequences of not doing something we “have to” do. We desire the results brought on by gain and movement in our lives.
Management is keeping things the way they are today. Leadership is moving things forward from where they are today.
The reason so many people fail to achieve their goals is because they have not committed to defending a time in which they will work on their goals.
