Work-Life Balance… Some Feedback PLEASE!


work-life balance

Hey guys, Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but this has been a loooooong week for me. I’m SO glad it’s the weekend!

Just a quick post for today because I’ve got a teeny tiny favour to ask you…

Most of you know that I love writing about work-life balance topics. I struggled with it for years (still do every now and then), and I know it’s something LOADS of people don’t know how to manage properly.

I’ve been thinking long and hard over the last few weeks about this, and I realised that I really want to write a book about it. The cool thing is that once it’s published, this book will tie in nicely with this blog and my career blog.

I wrote my first eBook last year, which was great, but I made some rookie mistakes too. This time round, I’m doing things differently.

Okay, so here’s where you come in…

I need feedback, guys. I don’t want to write another predictable and stale work-life balance book that’s already out there. So I want to know what your thoughts are.

Why would you read this book?

What would help YOU manage your work-life balance?

Things like that…

TALK TO MEIf you’ve got a minute to spare, I’d really appreciate you popping a comment below. Otherwise, here’s a little poll that you can use too. Or, if you’d prefer to just send me a mail, go for it –

Oh yes, if there’s anything you’re tired of reading about on this topic, let me know too. Really, whatever comes to mind about work-life balance – feel free to write away. Β THANK YOU!!


What tips do you want to get from a work-life balance book?

  1. Hey Mel, ironically I got mailed today (yesterday) about this webinar (they usually send developer web related stuff) Funny thing about the poll is, that I think the top two is already pretty well covered already or so I’d thought… We must actually chat about your publishing ideas for the book πŸ™‚

    I’ve actually recently started reading Branson’s Business Stripped Bare: Adventures of a Global Entrepreneur and brought to mind us entrepreneurs don’t really have a balance since mostly your life and work is enfused. Wish I could read more of it, there how to make time to read more books :p

      Oh man, so annoyed I missed this webinar. Thanks though and for the feedback πŸ™‚ Appreciate it! I’m doing a ton of research for this book, so a lot different to the last one. And Sir Branson is definitely featured in there too. I haven’t read that book though, it sounds good. I’ve got his “Screw it, Let’s do It” 1 & 2 and those were awesome. Will catch up soon!

  2. I would like to read something about ramping up the metabolism and fight fatigue

      Oh yes, that’s a big deal for a lot of people – me included. Thanks Ruchira! πŸ™‚

  3. I am not sure I would read this type of a book, but if I were, it would have to contain tips on how to balance ‘me’ time with work time and play time πŸ™‚

      Oh yes, I hear you Tandy… “me time” is a must! Thanks πŸ™‚

  4. That’s a great topic with endless ways to go. Balance is everything and especially during challenging times. I always felt like I was working, a mom, a wife and I was spreading myself so thin. I felt like I was managing things by the skin of my teeth and not doing any one thing particularly well when I worked.

    I had to learn to try to do less and focus on priorities…I still don’t know how I could have done things better! So I could use a book like that:))

      I know what you mean Kelly, trying to do it all and being perfect at it (my problem anyway) is exhausting. You’re right though, focusing to do less and more on priorities makes a huge difference! πŸ™‚

  5. I’ve found my balance, Mel, so my vote would be useless. Bev is the one who needs this terribly….I wish you could sit down and talk to her one on one and get her feedback.

    Anyway, I have no doubt you will do a fantastic job on it. Best wishes and have a great weekend.
