For years I tried finding balance. That mythical ridge line between family and friends, work and hobbies. I searched hard. But it always eluded me. Then I looked around, and it seemed I wasn't alone – no one had found that mythical line.
At the beginning of every year, I go through an exercise and choose three words to help focus my efforts and guide me toward my goals for the year to come. Three words that act as a lighthouse when things get foggy. And unlike resolutions, don't evaporate before the end of the first week of January.
