Work-life Balance Formula
Throughout different periods of our lives, each of us experiences different needs, desires, commitments, and opportunities. No magic formula can be applied to our work and personal lives that would suit everyone. However, below, you will find a tool you can use to calculate the formula precisely for your work and personal life. So, how does it work?
We split the formula into the 11 most important and largest layers of life: family, work, health and fitness, sleep, personal time, emotional health, intellectual activity, spirituality or religion, community and social connections, home and household, and everything in between as ‘wasted/filled time’. Each of these layers is divided into two parts:
- the actual time you devote to this layer of life, and
- the ideal time you would like to devote to this layer.
Go ahead, have some fun and try it out. You have 168 hours (per week) for each of these layers. Once you’ve made your choices, you’ll see at the bottom the difference between how much time you actually spend on specific areas and how much you’d ideally like to spend on them. It is more than likely there won’t be enough time for everything you want to do. However, even if you manage to fit into 168 hours, there won’t be enough. Therefore, when you decide on what you want to improve the most in your life, choose a priority (‘priority’ is a singular noun, and ‘priorities’ were invented by people who fail to distinguish the ‘priority’) for the next month, half a year, or a year.
Have a good trip while having fun and trying it out, and don’t forget, there is no correct formula for everyone and every time. Even the things that are right for you today may not be right after a month, a year, or even after ten. Balancing is a process, not a result!
