How LifePlan Can Help Working Parents Improve Work-Life Balance

I just came across an article titled “4 Tips to Create Work-Life Balance for Working Parents.” I found it consistent with my own life experience and that of acquaintances and customers.\r\n\r\nI want to comment on two tips, as they can be addressed by LifePlan, the mobile app (initially available for iPhones and iPads), which is undergoing beta testing this month.\r\n\r\n1. Readjust your goals: This is the third tip in the article, but I think it should be the first, because as a parent, I suggest you start by defining both your professional and personal priorities and goals in life. LifePlan asks you to define your personal mission, life roles, and long- and short-term goals for each role.\r\n\r\n2. Schedule your life: The tip of sharing your online calendar with your spouse is a great idea. However, I want to focus on the actual scheduling of your life activities. Scheduling your activities should come after you have defined your life priorities and goals, because you want to plan what you have previously defined as important in your life. Doing it backward potentially opens your calendar to urgent and lower-priority activities not well aligned with your life goals. LifePlan asks you to schedule your life on a weekly basis, connecting the tasks that you schedule in your calendar to a previously defined life goal.\r\n\r\nWe are fast approaching the launch of LifePlan. In the meantime, feel free to read my recent blog articles describing its features and benefits.\r\n\r\nYou can also use this link to be added to the waiting list for LifePlan.\r\n\r\nStay tuned for more news about LifePlan next Monday.\r\n\r\nPercy M.
