Your first challenge is to figure out what you need to do in life rather than what you think you should be doing. Use these six tips to be successful when you create a successful work and life balance:

1. Keep your approach flexible

Realize that balance doesn’t mean you need to have everything planned out at the same time each and every time, it just means you need to stay organized. Make sure you allow time in your life to relax.

2. Define the things that are non-negotiable

While every day can be different, it is important to determine which things cannot be sacrificed. And if you don’t identify them, you can find them slipping away.

3. Embrace imperfection and chaos

Realize that if you try to focus on perfection, you will just set up yourself for failure and disappointment. Life isn’t orderly and perfect. The more you are able to embrace and thrive, the more prepped you are for life.

4. Let the little things go

Life is too short to settle for what doesn’t really matter or is trivial. You need to make sure that you have your eyes on the bigger picture and let go of what has hurt you in the past.

5. Allow yourself to achieve flow

Be engaged with what you are doing, but realize that you can’t force life. There are certain things in life that are out of your control and you need to be okay with that and able to work with it.

6. Don’t put everything you have in store out there

Make sure your life is filled with different, diverse paths. Allow yourself to rise and fall and get up and grow. Have a sense of being spontaneous.
