Too busy to look after your love life? Well, this blog post is going to show you how to find some time to enjoy online dating when you have a very busy job. 😊

  • Work Life Balance VS Work Life Integration

As I see it, work/life balance is a myth because it doesn’t exist. How many people can actually have perfect work/life balance? Not that many.

  1. It’s okay to focus on your work more than your life at some stage.

Life is a long journey which has different stages. Sometimes we focus on our families; sometimes we focus on our work. That’s very normal. So, if you spend a large amount of time working very hard, don’t beat yourself up, please!

  1. Instead of work/life balance, I choose work/life integration.

Let me give you some examples of work/life integration:

  • When I’m working out in the gym, I listen to an audiobook.
  • When I’m driving, I have a quick telephone meeting with my business partner.
  • When I’m doing housework such as cooking, I listen to a podcast.

Of course, you may even bring your children to business meetings if you like & there is nothing wrong with you if you want to check your email when you are on holiday – that’s also work/life integration, and it’s much more achievable and realistic than work/life balance. In this way, you can find some time for online dating. 😉

  • The most important time management principles

The most effective and productive people have mastered the art of time management. Today I’m going to share the most important time management principles with you.

The first principle is to manage your energy rather than your time. Instead of focusing on time management, you’d better focus on energy management. That means you need to analyze how you feel and your productivity throughout the day, week or month. Find out when you are the most energetic and when you are the least energetic. Then plan your work and your life based on your energy. For example, if you feel energetic in the morning, you should do the most challenging work in the morning. Get it done first so that you don’t need to worry about it later on.

The second principle is trimming. Never automate something that can be eliminated, and never delegate something that can be automated or streamlined. The key is to do less and achieve more. Prioritize high-leverage activities and get rid of tasks that don’t bring results. This principle alone will change the game because it makes you focus on the big picture instead of small details that don’t even matter.

  • 3 tools of the successful

According to my observation, successful people generally use the following three powerful tools.

  • A daily journal

Many successful people use journals. For example, Jessica runs a 7-figure business. Every morning she writes in her journal for 30 minutes before she starts to work. “If I don’t journal first thing in the morning, I tend to overthink things throughout the day,” says Jessica, “Writing things down in my journal helps me get more clarity.”

  • Online programs

Every successful person that I know highly values education. In this day and age, online learning is mainstream, so successful people keep learning and growing by joining online programs about business, sales & marketing, communication skills, etc.

  • A time management system

Many people save their money carefully, but when it comes to their time, they spend it like billionaires!

Actually, successful people value their time tremendously. That’s why each of them uses a time management system, e.g., a digital calendar and a traditional diary. Which system do you use?

“When you manage your time properly, you will have enough time for online dating! Enjoy!”
