Here are some ways that you can achieve the work-life balance that you seek.
Just like setting a goal of accomplishing a certain project by a specific date, make achieving work-life balance a goal that you are going to strive for.
Start by looking at your entire work week and weekend. If you have been keeping time logs, look over all your logs. If you are using time-keeping software, such as Time Doctor ( www.timedoctor.com), look over your logs and see what it says about your work and personal time. When do you get to work? When do you leave? How much of the weekend do you spend enjoying yourself, doing chores, or doing more work?
