There are 8 avenues to a fulfilling life. They resemble the spokes of the Wellness Wheel: Family, Social, Career, Financial, Physical, Intellectual, Spiritual and Environment. For most people, work and money take up a disproportionate amount of time and energy - more than has been afforded to us in our lifetime. That imbalance leads to a great deal of wasted energy, not to mention depression, illness and heartache.
It's time to drop the work-life balance myth. What you want is Life Balance: fulfillment by organizing the time and energy you place towards each of the 8 avenues of living.
