Adopting a Life-Fit Mindset
I often get asked how I manage to fit podcast-creation, online content conception, professional development planning, full-time teaching, mothering, and managing our house at the same time in a balanced way, and the truth is I DON’T!
I’ve learned recently that there is no such thing as work-life balance. The concept simply does not exist in real life!
My friend, speaker, edu phenom and best-selling author Jimmy Casas talks about adopting the mindset of life-fit, instead. We cannot balance everything important simultaneously. What we can do, however, is live an integrated, rich, lopsided, beautiful life.
- Focus blocks (90–120 mins blocks of creativity, inspiration and high-level focussed work)
- Social blocks (90–120 mins blocks of connecting with people)
- Admin blocks (30–60 mins blocks of lower-energy blocks of time)
- Recovery (variable-length blocks for exercise, meditation and self-care).
Some days, you might focus more on one goal or interest, and that’s just fine.
Don’t make yourself crazy by trying to be all to all, all the time! Seek out wholeness by ping-ponging between your interests and being okay with the occasional messiness of it!
How can you invite a sense of life-fit into your life?
