To create balance at both work and home you need to be clear about what you need  to get done at both work and in your personal life. 

True balance comes when everyone in your life is happy. If you are happy, but your boss is upset, you don't have balance. If you are happy, but your spouse is not happy, you don't have balance. 

Balance can be learned. If your life is out of balance, it can be fixed. It is hard to have balance, but when you get there, life is good. 

You can take the first step towards balance by getting your time under control. Start with the Time Management Magic course

There are two types of meetings, either to give out information or to make decisions. Understanding the difference between the two types of meetings will determine who should be at the meeting. 

If you want to have an effective meeting, the first step is to determine if you should even have a meeting. If it is vital to have a meeting, be prepared, have an agenda and keep it as short as possible. If you start on time and stop on time, you will begin to have meetings people will look forward to showing up for.

In any organization, we all have different jobs, but there should be a single purpose everyone is working towards. 

A mission statement does not have to be a well-written paragraph displayed on a wall. Instead, create  a single statement that drives decision making and behavior in the organization. 

Instead of developing a mission statement, values, and a vision, use the one sentence statement of the purpose of the work you do.
