how to find balance in business, Idaho Networking Group


Balance seems to be more of an art than a science. In preparing for this message, I discovered hundreds of so called experts or professionals that all had conflicting views. The one common theme I found was that everyone agrees that figuring out what you value and then make a plan in how you will spend time on each one is the greatest way to find balance.

Here are a some quotes I didn’t share at the event:

  • Never get so busy making a living, that you forget to make a life.

Quotes shared during the event:

  • “There’s no such thing as work-life balance. There are work-life choices, and you make them, and they have consequences.”  Jack Welch
  • “A well-developed sense of humor is the pole that adds balance to your steps as you walk the tightrope of life.” William Arthur Ward
  • “The family is at the heart of what really matters to all of us. If things aren’t well at home, every other area of life is affected.” Nancy Leigh DeMoss
  • If you want to know how rich you are, find out how many things you have that money cannot buy.
  • Balance is not something you find, it’s something you create.
  • “The key is not to prioritize what’s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.” Stephen Covey
