Life Improvement through Increased Organization & Productivity

Life balance. It's been a buzz phrase for awhile.

The issue is that the word "balance" suggests equal proportions or a sameness. Just think of a teeter-totter. It's not very fun if one person is much heavier than the other.

Or consider the expression, "That's like comparing apples-to-oranges." This phrase infers an inequality.

So when people think of having "life balance," there is an implication that the various parts of your personal and professional life are equal.

As you've probably discovered, this is virtually impossible.

So we've decided to write a series of articles about Life Improvement because it is possible to enhance one or more areas of your life and feel more fulfilled.

For each month, we've written one article with an overall theme. Additional articles are resources or other suggestions around the same subject.

We suggest reading the articles in order as we're are giving practical suggestions to create life change.
