Life gives us so many challenges I don’t even know where to begin if you asked me to list them down. Life challenges are fun, I appreciate them– they make us do things that were probably unthinkable without the situation.
In the end of it all, I just want a nice, stable job, enough time to spend with CB and Kaitlin [they don’t ask much, really], and some time for myself.
Work-life balance has been quite difficult to attain lately, and stress has been eating me up. But that’s okay. There are choices: adjust your perspective, adjust your goal, or adjust your action plans.
Adjusting perspectives work, don’t get me wrong. It makes me get up everyday with a happy feeling. As a trainer, I think working on my perspectives and others’ should be under my job description.
Sometimes, people like me need smart people who’d scrutinize, crush, or pimp out our perspectives for us. I thank the Universe for having such friends.
But when that doesn’t work anymore, what do you do?
When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps. [Confucius]
