  • Share the story of a Old lady and her Son and her grand daughter:
    Mike called up his daughter and asked her to join him to a resort as he planned for a lunch for them. He also mentioned that they would pick her grandma on the way. The daughter agrees and they move out for grandmas place. Once they reach, the grandma says “I am too busy. Sorry you two should carry on.” Mike and his daughter continues and they have lots of fun in the resort, try variety of food at lunch. On his way back home he drops the daughter at her friends place for group studies and before he reaches home he meets with an accident and does not survive it.
    Mike’s mom for the rest of her life kept grieving her decision of not joining her son to the trip he offered. She recalled this several times and got sad and lived with a broken heart.
    We don’t want to make instant decisions and then realize that they took a wrong turn unlike our expectation. So think on the impact it would throw before you decide.
  • Work Life Balance

    1. 1. WHAT IS WORK LIFE BALANCE Work-life balance is a term used to describe the balance between workplace obligations and personal responsibilities. It was coined to address the unhealthy life choices that many people were making and when they were choosing to neglect other important areas of life such as family, friends and hobbies in favor of work-related tasks and goals.

Plan a Structure: Work life balance is all about Flexibility which can be achieved by a Structure in place as it brings certainty (You know what’s going to happen and why). It also includes TOOLS / RESOURCES to have flexibility. This includes you being able to work from variety of places in different times of a day effectively. For this you would need mobile phones, laptops, remote access and flexible hours are important.
    14. 14. TEN KIM (Keep In Mind) - TIPS FOR WORK LIFE BALANCE 8. Practice Good Time Management: It means to do the right things in a right way at the right time. For this you need to focus on your priorities and focus on those tasks that advance important goals; those goals that will bring in high pay off results. Activities that involve too much time should be simplified, delegated or eliminated. Good time management means focusing on results. It’s important to aim for excellence but not necessarily for perfection. Cause when you aim for excellence you might get excellent results but when you aim for perfection you might never quite get there.

So, after you have set your goals and achieved them take the reward. You can choose to reward yourself be it at work or home. By doing this everything will become more enjoyable. Take the small and big rewards. You deserve it. 4. Stay Healthy: It’s important to eat well, sleep well and exercise. You need good office desk, good chair, good lighting, no fall over cables and at home it is just as valid. At home a good bed is also important as one spends most of the time there. Medical check ups are important. When working hard any of the therapies and check ups are cost effective.
    18. 18. TEN KIM (Keep In Mind) - TIPS FOR WORK LIFE BALANCE 3. Be Passionate and Enthusiastic: Mix with positive people and don’t accept negativity either privately or professionally. See the Opportunity and not the obstacle. Always try to see the positive situation of any thing. Look harder look longer and look at it differently. Two techniques to attain these is 1. Positive self talk and 2. Visualization. Positive Self-Talking Instead of telling “you can’t do something”, tell yourself “you can do it” Say these “I am a great person; I am valuable, I am good at what I do, I am excited about my work, my goals and my life”. Visualization includes: Determining your end goal (actually seeing, touching, feeling and experiencing the emotion of the goal). In this way you feel that you have already achieved your goal as you are already experiencing it.
