You see the reason why our work-life balance gets off balance is because we fill ourselves with too many things. The minute (sometimes even before) we have ticked things off our list we start adding more to it. Two years ago I was given my first taste of goal setting for the year, and I have learned the value in creating time to introspectively take stock of where your life is at, where you are heading, and how you will live intentionally to meet your personal aspirations and craft a life you love every day.
What I learned through the process of goal setting and sharing the process with other women doing the same is that we can all be more intentional with how we want to live our lives, and support one another in doing so. And by being intentional with how we live, we can be at ease, feel happier, and maintain control of what can otherwise feel like an overwhelming amount of responsibility as a working mom.
I don’t think that any of us can every say we are 100% fulfilled in all areas of our lives – it’s a constant balance… but I’ve spent the past 2 years being a lot more intentional about what I want out of life, and have been much happier for it. The workshop was so successful, and so much fun, I’ve decided to share the worksheets for free here on my blog. Don’t make the mistake of giving too much of yourself, so there is nothing left for you to feed off of. I encourage you to take some time for yourself to think about what you want to make a priority in your life for the next year.
Right now, set aside a 1.5 hour visit to a coffee shop or quiet place, or choose 3 mornings that you can get up 30 minutes early to spend some time on these exercises for you. Download the worksheets here which will guide you through a straightforward, heart-centered goal setting process to help you visualize and live into a fulfilling work+life balance. Assess what areas of your life you are least and most fulfilled in, and prioritize the areas that you are most interested in improving. I look forward to hearing how these worksheets help you prioritize what matters most in your life. Download your 2015 goal-setting worksheets here: click here for you free goal-setting worksheets.

I thought it was a fantastic idea because I already had days for chores at home and assigning days for my blogging would be perfect, I thought.
What can I cut off my list: Instead of adding things, I am now looking for things I can take off my list. I hope to continue and work on these points and hopefully, if I persevere, I may get it right this month.
Good luck with your goals this month – they sound very sensible so I hope they help you! This gave me an opportunity to consider everything I’ve learned, and exercises that helped me, and compact them all into a guided planning tool that could help other busy working moms. Start today, and every day, by using the Whole Life Wheel to inventory yourself and keep yourself in the best balance possible.
That works for both our professional as well as our personal lives.The reason why most of us don’t get it DONE is because we do not have a clear vision of what we want DONE and a strategy to go about in completing it.

With all that I had learnt from the mistakes the past weeks and all the things that I did do right, I think I have finally found my balance. I have been making some schedules for myself too. We already had menu plans and chore plans but I needed something that was visual for my blog and social media. Taking some time to consider the big picture provides perspective and helps you frame this moment of your life within the larger journey. There are things in our life that we have to and there are things that we can choose to. The things that we have to are the things that life is about and those that we have to balance out are those that we can choose to do or not. For example, I pick only one blogging task, only one chore that must be done and one hobby.
They are your true aim and purpose in life.Many people become so involved with their careers and financial goals that they lose sight of the reasons why they wanted financial success in the first place. Your personal, family and health goals will come faster and more easily.By working on these three types of goals simultaneously, you can maintain a healthy work-life balance while continuing to move onward and upward.
