I'm kind of a self-improvement junkie. I’ve read a lot of articles about work-life balance over the years. Many suggest checklists or other tools and encourage you to schedule yourself time to recharge.
If you have tried these like I have, you have probably found “me time” gets overridden by the priority of the moment. It is typically sacrificed to ANY seemingly greater priority. You end up not giving yourself the time and running from the beginning to the end of the day.
