Being a balanced WA member

Last Update: April 05, 2014

Hey WA family.

I have noticed that I am either spending too much time staying focused on my own work or spending too much time helping and engaging in the community. I need to balance my time here on WA.

So I have come up with a solution :) Since I am on WA for about 10-12 hours daily, (time fly's when your having fun), on and off, I will spend my mornings helping others and my evening hours to myself.

I know how it was for me when I first started out. I had a million questions, and I used to community for all that I can, so I have to dedicate some time to helping newbies, especially and just engaging in the community.

The rest of my time will be to myself. I am getting further and further along with my website, so many ideas pop through my head throughout the day and I am coming across a lot of helpful people and networking so much. It just seem like GOD is presenting people before me and opening the doors of opportunity for me. I have to start getting more organized.

First step is cleaning off my desk. I have not done that since I started.

I need to write down all the task that needs to be completed and continue to make deadlines to complete them.

The weather is getting nice here in philly, so I am also going to share my time with my little one's out doors. Plan outings with them for the weekends and put some time aside for self pampering and spiritual refreshing's.

It all sounds nice right, and I'm saying it like it's really simple :) but all can be done through HIM who gives me strength and wisdom.

I'll keep you guys updated on the progress and let you know if we need to make some adjustments. LOL!!!

Great plan. You have to find a way that works for you to juggle everything. I find a clean desk and a list of priorities is a great way to start! Good luck!

Good plan. With 10-12 hours a day you are probably bouncing ahead in leaps and bounds. I'm glad you are so balanced and happy. That's what it's all about.

I identify with a lot of the things you mentioned.
Good for you for cleaning off your desk, neatness and organization really helps you get more work done (in my opinion).

It is tricky Charlotte, it's very hard to chop up your time appropriately to both work for yourself & the community ~ I think it seems you are aiming for a good balance. I hope this solution works well for you.
