Julie, a 39-year-old executive for a large corporation, told me she desperately wanted to improve her work/life balance and her results at work. She had two children at home and her husband worked an equally time-consuming job. She was constantly working or taking care of her family. Her business results were not improving, her career was stalling and she wanted to see her children more.
        I said, “Julie, you need to do some things just for yourself, to recharge your batteries. If you don’t, you may very well burn out and that won’t help your company, your career or your family.”
        She looked at me and said, “And exactly when am I going to have time to do that?”
        Does any of this sound familiar?

Get the time
        Here are seven actions to improve your most important business outcomes, accelerate your career and have a life.

       See the business upside of downtime. People often say that they get their best ideas while in the shower. That’s because they stop doing everything for a moment and give their brains a chance to relax. By going on vacations, getting home early and watching your kids play soccer, you actually can gain ideas on how to improve your business results. It seems paradoxical, but when you buy into this concept, you will stop doing so much and achieve even better business results.
