Balancing Work and Life (On the Fly Guide To...)by Bill Butterworth
Synopses & Reviews
Life is more like a marathon than a sprint. Heres how to stay well conditioned.
Bill Butterworth will make you laugh-and learn while youre doing it! In the opening chapter of this powerful little book, Bill shares with you how, while running his rotund body in a nightmarish 440-yard dash, he learned a great lesson:
Life is much more like a marathon than a sprint.
The attitudes and actions that result in steady success over the long haul are what make for long-term satisfaction and achievement. To experience this for yourself, you need to understand how to deal with lifes inevitable challenges:
·The “Hazies”-losing sight of long-term goals
·The “Lazies”-lacking the self-discipline to bring life back into focus
·The “Crazies”-allowing life to run out of control
Each of these can be conquered by three “clarifying triangles:” setting clear priorities, learning the discipline of endurance, and reaching the finish line through skillful pacing. It all adds up to a succinct and inspiring guide to balancing excellence at work with fulfillment in all of life.
