We have to do more, in less time.
Boundaries between our work life and

and women in lots of ways.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to work hard;
But working hard and not paying attention to your own basic needs, can push
you to the point of burning-out!
No matter how hard you work, it's important to find a healthy
balance between your work life and personal life.

Let's first define what work-life balance is not;
Work-Life Balance does not mean an
equal balance. Trying to schedule an equal
number of hours for each of your various work
and personal activities is usually unrewarding
Your best individual work-life balance will vary
over time, often on a daily basis. The right
balance for you today will probably be
different for you tomorrow.
There is no perfect, one-size fits all, balance you
should be striving for. The best work-life balance
is different for each of us because we all have
different priorities and different lives.
Many people try to find "Work life balance" with better time
management. In order to have the skills that allow for this balance,
one needs to understand how they want to spend their time.

“We Only Live Once! And for a limited time only.”
Each activity takes a part of your time. It means
that, you can not allocate that time to do any
So you have to;
Make a list of all the things
you want to do with that
time, and things you
prefer not to do with it.
Prioritize through this list.
And carefully prepare a
plan of action to get the
most out of it.
Start with knowing your self better;
Who are you?
What you care about in life?
What is your core beliefs and
Where they came from?
What’s your basic needs?
What is the thing that you are
most passionate about?
What is the basic needs of your
human body and soul?
The key to success of your plan is;
How is it that one person will
sacrifice his own life for another,
while another will murder a stranger
for sheer pleasure?
What is the force that drives and
shapes all of our emotions, actions,
qualities of life, and ultimately, our
While each human being is unique,
we also share nervous systems that
function in the same way.
There are also six fundamental
needs that everyone has in
common, and all behavior is simply
an attempt to meet those six needs.
This drive is Human Needs
The Six encoded in our nervous
system. The means by which people
meet these six human needs are
1. Certainty: assurance you can
avoid pain and gain pleasure
2. Uncertainty/Variety: the need for
the unknown, change, new stimuli
3. Significance: feeling unique,
important, special or needed
4. Connection/Love: a strong feeling
of closeness or union with someone
5. Growth: an expansion of capacity,
capability or understanding
6. Contribution: a sense of service
and focus on helping, giving to and
- Desire for certainty, that
we can avoid pain and
gain pleasure (i.e. comfort).
Some people pursue this need by striving to
control all aspects of their lives.
Others obtain certainty by giving up control
and adopting a philosophy of faith.
Variety makes us feel alive and engaged.
- Desire for significance,
a belief that one’s life
has meaning and
Some individuals will pursue this need by
competing with others, or by destroying and
tearing down those around them.
Others may strive to fulfill this need through
connection with other human beings.
The force of life is the drive for fulfillment; we all
have a need to experience a life of meaning.
Fulfillment can only be
achieved through a pattern of
living in which we focus on two

2) the need to contribute
beyond ourselves in a
All dysfunctional behaviors arise
from the inability to consistently
meet these needs. When our
attempts to reach fulfillment fail,
we will settle for comfort, or for
meeting our needs on a small
Understanding these needs, and
which ones you are trying to
meet in any given moment, can
help you create new patterns
that lead to lasting fulfillment.
"You know, we just want to achieve
something today and we want to enjoy
something today. And if we do both of
those things today, we’re going to have a
pretty good day. And if we do both of those
things every day, for the rest of our lives…
we’re going to have a pretty good life.“
You need to be prepared for this continuous progress!
Life is like riding a bicycle, To keep your balance you must keep moving.
