The Importance and Benefits of Work Life Balance

By experience, and from coaching leaders and professionals from diverse sectors for over 22 years, I’ve learned the importance and benefits of work life balance.

Like you, I felt I had important things to accomplish, so I made it my aim to be “running on full.”

  • “Running on Full” means elevating those things that sustain contribution and achievement, while minimizing those things that lead to overload and burnout.
  • By contrast “running on empty” means continuing to do those things that contribute to overload and make us more susceptible to burnout.

Peace and Effectiveness in All of Life, Home, Work and Community

For me, it’s part of what Jesus had in mind when He said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” That kind of running on full. Comprehensive. Involving all of life, at home, at work, and in my community.

I think “running on full” somehow plays well into the definition of integrity. “The state of being whole, entire, or undiminished.” (Dictionary.com.)

Hopefully the occasional post will cause you to make some adjustment, in thinking or in action, so you can be the very best God gave you potential to be, at work, at home, in leadership and in service to others. In other words, to reap the benefits of work life balance.
