Too much work. And then you're it's like quicksand you can't get out you know you set yourself at a level where. Your boss expects that a view and if you do any any last all of a sudden you're like oh. I'm in over my head and then it just becomes part of your life.

Yeah and first what is work life balance really with the definition of that and here's what she's. Some recent meet one's work life balance is impossible. To some degree I can appreciate your balance my bouncer to meet wholly different I don't think we'll ever have I'm 50%. You know harmony and keeps on where can I mean I don't think that's ever gonna happen but important. Part of the journey is to strife or. So everybody is her life balance is different okay is that you had you lost me I mean it was tiles. Kind of hesitant about this until then until she said admiral Owens is different yeah yeah yeah but. To achieve you have to achieve that Ers and she gives. And I'm a very organized person and she gives it blackened Mike you follow these steps then I can ICA and in each. It's an acronym on all he's one is a step that you need to found to achieve. Work life balance that will then lead to six sacks turn so that is all in the podcast and Rochester buzz dot com but she also sad. That you how to divide your day into three categories in this is what I did yesterday and went home yesterday hunt after edited podcast in my I'm gonna do this at our. All the hours in the day 24 hour okay and it she's addicted dividing into three categories and she explains. I'd divide my life up into three categories work on and personal. If there's three categories and tie for hours each category gets in our ally yourself eight hours. A work today. I'm in if she can only work six hours on Friday may be a work an extra half an hour. You know the other four days or if you have to work on a Sunday morning get up early Sunday morning for everybody gets up it's kind but still I yourself. Ask your personal time like 66 and a half hours of sleep walk with the dog maybe you know work out of whenever. Maybe some meditation time meeting time whenever I decide to do some those in hours. Candidacy and hours on the season and meditation time with five kids. Who I if I don't. Have in my Gillis and stuff. Let's get publicity from the ceiling and disciplined and I'm an average sides do not those in our candidacy and hours. On the he's an easy time with five kids. I. This kid got this electric and so what you. Drive like you dropped it in the states like Madonna on a wire. Like just follow later McKay eight hours or got to it and he got this that he got it just. Laid down the boundaries right here comes annual. And it's. Like yeah. It's an eye so what's the when your most guilty of the mobile's three and don't pay enough attention to. That would be. And work too much then yesterday I sat down and it is really I divided my day in an OK so oh from a good about it nine and it wake up that story that's. You know fix our dollars right there and then. But I think for some people. Working is though is the bullets category I think they kind of go together fool I had no idea what I if I have too much free time. And what shall not better than anybody but if I too much free time I don't suck to lose my mind I think of all the money it could be making in that moment and every. And stymied. So you need me. You're gonna burn now gonna burn down here. I think you need time to meditate or just. Sit out I mean I don't know you're not gonna sit on the front porch and have coffee he would drink a beer or something by Lewis here from your enemy you we all need that time and we don't you give herself that time. I think I think though the biggest deficit. Down a lot of us have is this sleep category of has its sites in Dina now in that world of having it that that C pap machine and and going to a sleep specialist. Like you'll die if you don't sleep right. It over time it'll it takes years off your life. If people work. Ten hours a day twelve hours and they're guys girl women listening right now that work twelve hours a day for the last twenty years right. Every choice if somebody actually happy are you feel closure how perfectly happy with you know I think there's a different Alison is animal you could tell another person what their work life balance should be. Well she's she's sounds as kids been to a million things that I haven't Jabbar and I was a million things that I don't but I don't think you can tell somebody. Hey either swells to work eight hours are supposed to be at home in ours are supposed to. Have downtime for eight hours have been that too cookie cutter is its is that it doesn't always is well I mean death is which many people for everybody have a team formula. But you need to take care like we don't do enough self care and every single person from the and got it doesn't even matter what the conversation is that we're talking about on the seven figures by cast every single expert comes in and says don't forget about self care initiates self care options. You static just chill out and have a beer just go on a date night we keep our productivity do dat. Media I mean I probably only like I would say less than four hours a week I have been a week. In that category of. Whatever meditation or personal weren't otherwise it just walking the dog she says to some open but. I really challenging too bright down 24 hours and really see pay attention to how many hours you dedicate to watt. Really is eye opening sometimes. Where he's running attack couldn't it be a long term investment to look almost like 401K where you. You work call a bunch now and then later in life you can have the luxury of doing whatever you want for as long as you want it belongs. Like I long term goal at 35 to be able to collect. Seven to 500 to a 101000 dollars in one month without working without physically going and punching a clock and and doing work. I want to be able to go with my girl wife former Finley at that time. Wait for a month and still collect that much of an income liked but I only do that if now and my appointed 28 I'm not doing anything but working I feel like. But your relationships. Of up until then. Might be horrible and it may actually prevent you from achieving that end tonight I think what's it's kind of of that the messages if you have that balance between the three. Then everything else you know like for progressed to the perfect balance I think it's 888. Eight I think Mueller. Maybe you maybe it's way and you have a family and more responsibilities and think your craving it now more than when you're young. Eddie because. Now you are literally my it is much personal there.
