3 Ideas, 2 Quotes, and 1 Question to help you reflect on your work-life wellness and balance habits this week.


3 Ideas from Me


“The people who say there is no such thing as work-life balance (WLB) fall into two groups. They either don’t understand WLB or they are severely out of balance and don’t want to face reality.

Don’t let the poison of naysayers stand in your way of aligning your daily behaviors with your priorities in life.”


“Just as football players must master the basics of blocking, tackling, catching, and running if they wish to win; we must master the basics with our health, family relationships, careers, and faith if we want to succeed in all areas of our lives.

A football team can put 72 points on the scoreboard, which in many eyes, is a huge success. However, if they fail to master the essential skill of tackling, they very well could give up 73 or more points and lose.


“I believe it is moderately easy to be successful in one role in life. Just give it all your time and energy. I also think it is most rewarding to be successful in all areas of your life. When you put in the time and energy with your spouse and children, you become significant in their lives.

When you look back at your life when you reach the proverbial end, I want you to relish in the achievements you accomplished in all the areas of your life, especially your health, family relationships, career, and faith.”
