I’ve been pretty busy the past few weeks on a project for work, and during that time, I’ve had to make tradeoffs on how to use my time (obviously the blog has not come out too well with those tradeoffs…).

Although I’ve been busy, I’ve still been able to maintain a pretty good balance, putting time into my top priorities almost every day. That certainly wouldn’t have been possible if I hadn’t identified those priorities well in advance, a step that I think is essential to the whole life balance process. And it is a really straightforward step, but at the same time, I think it is easy to overlook.

The next step for me is to periodically reassess the list and make sure it is still accurate.
