Is Your Work/Life Balance Way Out of Kilter?
Maintaining a balance between job and family is getting more and more difficult these days. If you’re struggling to keep up at work and at home, feeling guilty that you’re shortchanging both, and resentful that you can’t even think of spending time on you, the Balanced Life self-study E-course can help.
The Issues of Work/Life Balance
How did we get here? The combination of widespread corporate downsizing and a culture of acquiring/consuming has left millions of people struggling to keep up. Trying to do it all, have it all, and be it all.
Marketing messages show smiling, happy people with big homes, big cars, active families, and busy jobs somehow doing it all. When we try to copy this lifestyle we find out it’s no fun, nearly impossible to pull off, highly frustrating, and deeply depressing. Looking for help, we buy the newest technology - smart phone, web browser, text messenger - only to find that seems to compound the problem.
But the problem of life imbalance can be solved. The Balanced Life E-course shows you how to identify the unique building blocks of your balanced life. Ten weekly self study classes include personalized exercises to help you integrate the basic concepts of life balance into your unique life circumstances.
What is the Balanced Life E-course?
After writing several articles about life balance, including a free self-assessment tool which is very popular, I developed a prototype self study course to help people get their lives back in balance. More than a dozen people from all walks of life joined in as volunteer testers as we went through an intensive beta test of the course.
Feedback on the course from the test group was excellent and their helpful, insightful comments, questions, and suggestions have been incorporated in the final product.
The Balanced Life E-course is a ten week, self study course delivered weekly by email. Recognizing that fundamental problems must be solved with fundamentals, the course helps you first understand the basic structure for a balanced life, then teaches you how to integrate strong fundamentals and five important life skills into your own life.
Filled with exercises, examples, and even home-work assignments, The Life Balance E-course can help you find the fulfilling life you seek.
This course identifies five fundamental building blocks of a balanced life: Purpose, Passions, Powers, Principles, and Perspectives - the five P's. The course helps you identify and clarify your own unique fundamentals, with exercises and tips on integrating them to give you the foundation for a balanced life.
In addition, The Balanced Life E-course describes five life skills that are important tools for achieving and maintaining life balance. These are: Positive Thinking, Self Awareness, Using Your Strengths, Setting Boundaries, and Time Management.
As someone focused on purposeful personal growth, I know life balance is important to you. No one enjoys being overwhelmed, over-worked, and under-appreciated. You can take back control of your life and enjoy life’s wonders and satisfactions with The Life Balance E-course.
