Guest Post by Galit Ben-Joseph
I’m honored to bring to you a guest a post by Galit Ben-Joseph a successful modern woman who’s taught me the secrets of work-life balance. Besides holding several advance degrees, Galit is an Investment Advisor, Adjunct Professor, Doctoral Candidate, and Mom. Enjoy!
Compared to our predecessors, woman have greater pressures in that they have to balance work and family.
Early in my career, my days and nights were busy with my first job on Wall Street. I learned early on the formula to balance work, life, and happiness. In fact, people always ask me how I get it all done.
To me, I am just living my life. But there are some specific pointers that help me get through my big days. Here is how I get it done:
Tip 1: Make a list. An old-fashioned one.
I know, you have heard this one before, but “the list” is critical. I have tried every possible planner, and every possible technology gadget, and what works for me is a plain sheet of paper. I create this sheet every night, or every morning, and I divide the page into different sections – – critical, personal, etc. There is something nice about taking out a clean sheet of paper every morning, and throwing out a full and completed one every night.
