Do you long for balance? What if you made intentional *imbalance* the goal instead?
What does a “balanced life” mean to you?
What if I suggested you forget about balance and strive for imbalance instead?
Several years ago, around the time I started setting an annual theme, I listed my various life roles and was astounded by the sheer number of them. Seeing them on paper, I realized not all of those roles held the same level of importance to me. Mom and business owner were (and still are) among the top; others carried less weight.
I experienced a defining moment then:
What legacy do I want to leave?
What if, instead of spending time and energy in all of these roles all the time, I focused on the ones that matter most?
What if I intentionally imbalance my life in favor of meaning, purpose, and significance
As we embark on a new year, I encourage you to engage in a similar exercise. What matters most to you? What purpose are you here to fulfill? What legacy do you want to leave
Then, intentionally imbalance your work and life in favor of meaning and purpose. Be o.k. with letting go of the trivial to focus on the important. Define your legacy, then bring it to life – and work.
