It’s easy to dream and set goals, but there is always a price to pay in order to achieve them. One of the factors that determine the price we pay is setting a strategic timeline or deadline. For me, this simply means you have to be organized. You have to take time to clarify your goals. Know exactly what is required, and set a deadline to get it done or reviewed.
Contrary to the ‘negative’ connotation attached to having deadlines, it could be effective if done right and as part of a carefully planned and organized schedule. Make sure the deadline is realistic, don’t have too many deadlines at once, and don’t set your deadlines too far in the future.
Konosuke Matsushita was the youngest of eight children and was born on November 27, 1894, in a farming village called Wasamura. His family was forced to leave their farm when Konosuke’s father lost his property.
Few months before he was to graduate from elementary school, and at only nine years of age, Konosuke had to say goodbye to his family on a journey to the city to work as an apprentice at a charcoal brazier store.
Konosuke would start his workday at the crack of dawn with the cleaning of the store. He was also tasked with caring for his employer’s children. The store went out of business less than a year after, and Konosuke found a new apprenticeship at a store selling bicycles.

Different people would give different interpretations to the concept of Work-Life balance.
For me, it is more about living a balanced life. Our existence cannot just be simply put into just two boxes – the work box and the life box. This gives the impression that your work isn’t simply also a part of your life.
To truly have a balanced life, what you do for work has to be something that is meaningful to you, and that allows you to express your gifts and talents in a way that benefits the world.
While we don’t all start from the ideal place of doing work that is simply an extension of our life, and not something you ‘leave’ your life to go to, we should make this our goal.
