For Your Information
Live with purpose. People who strive for something personally significant - whether it's learning a new skill, raising a good family, or changing careers - are happier than those who don't have strong dreams or aspirations. Pick one or more significant goals and devote time and effort pursuing them.
STRESS MANAGEMENT TIP
Block out time in your daily schedule to take a break. A Harvard Medical School study concluded that as little as 10 to 15 minutes a day of private time can cut down on stress, headaches, colds, poor sleep and increase your productivity.
BALANCING WORK AND FAMILY
To help keep balance in your life, ask yourself these questions:
- Can success in one area of my life compensate for failure in another?
- Can success in my profession compensate for a broken marriage, ruined health, or failure as a parent?
Identify your various roles and attach a level of priority to each. Use this as a guide toward making intelligent decisions on where to put your focus.
