Work and life can’t balance. Oil doesn’t mix with water. It doesn’t matter how much you love what you do, or from what location you do it. Your attention is either focused on your work, or on your family. You can’t multi-task the two into one.
Instead, learn to recognize seasons. As an entrepreneur (or at least an entrepreneurial minded person), you’ve already been faced with this reality. Seasons of hard work follow seasons of life adventure, which follow another season of hard work, and so on.
Seasons of work and seasons of rest (rest being a very relative word) are built into the world we live in. Embrace it, because you can’t run from it.
What season are you in? A season of planning and preparation? A season of renewal? A season of rapid growth? Maybe just a season of surviving? Identify it, embrace it, and live it.
