OFF BALANCE: GETTING BEYOND THE WORK-LIFE BALANCE MYTH

balance scaleNote: This is the second book in the Limitless Book Club.

How does one live better?

Whoa, that’s a pretty loaded question If I’ve ever heard one but one I’m sure you’ve asked yourself many times before. 

The last 13 years of my life have been spent learning and experimenting – a quest for living a better life.

  • Better health
  • Better relationships
  • Better work 
  • Better personal finances

I’m striving to become the best version of myself in all aspects and I know that’s why you’re here; you’re striving for the same thing. One area I really struggle to live better is with my work.

Raise your hand if you’re a borderline work-a-holic? Yeah, I’ve got two hands up too. I’m not borderline, I’m a full-fledged VIP member of the work-a-holic society.

It effects my energy, health, and personal relationships. It’s the one area of my life I’m spending the most time trying to improve.

In this search I came across a book called Off Balance: Getting Beyond the Work-Life Balance Myth to Personal and Professional Satisfaction by Matthew Kelly. It’s helped me so much that I decided to add it to the Limitless Book Club (aka “the LBC,” whaddup Snoop!).

It’s made me realize that it’s not really balance in my life that I’m after but something else.

THE LIMITLESS BOOK CLUB: TALENT IS OVERRATED

Book-Color Histogram.

A few years ago a I realized that I had racked up a pretty extensive Amazon wish list of books to read. Sadly, I just kept adding to it without actually making a dent in the damn thing.

Shortly after I set a goal to read 52 books in 52 weeks. There was no real rhyme or reason to the madness. I just wanted to start chipping away at that wish and to start reading more in general.

If you’re interested in how you can read 52 books in 52 weeks you can check out my write up over at Life Hack. You can also have a look at all of the books that were included in the 52 in 52 challenge here.

Reading as been such a huge influence on my life. It’s created an educational experience that has provided an insane amount of knowledge, resources, and at a fraction of the cost of what you would pay at a traditional school.

I love books so much that I want the world to know. I just want to shout it from the rooftops!

Ever since that challenge starting a Limitless book club was always on my mind. A simple place where I could tell you about what I’m reading and you could do the same for me.

I don’t plan on writing about every book I read but just some of my favorites, those that have influenced my life, and ones that might be beneficial for you in your own development.

In the club I’ll be giving a quick overview of each book and how you can apply it to your life.

Feel free to reach out and let me know if you plan on reading any of the books, have already read them, or would like to recommend a few that you think would be enjoyable not only to me but to others in the L365 community.

Enough of my rambling. On with it!

SUCCESS STORY: 70 POUNDS IN 9 MONTHS. MEET MIGUEL

miguel

Miguel, post world domination

 
I’m really excited to introduce you all to someone I’ve known for a while. I first met Miguel when I was the commissioner of an adult hockey league in Southern California. He was always super friendly, asking me how I was doing, talking sports, and shooting the breeze with me when he checked in for his games.
 
I hadn’t seen him in probably a year or two but recently ran into him at the same rink I used to work at. I saw him at a distance – this sounds like a love story doesn’t it? – Anyhow, I didn’t recognize him at first but as he started walking closer I knew it was him.
 
My first reaction was, “WTF! Dude, have you lost weight? You look great!” He told me he had lost 70 pounds in the last 9 months and was feeling better than ever.
 
I asked him to share his story with you and offer some tips, tricks, and Miguel secrets that can help you on your LimtilessFITNESS journey.
 
If you struggle with finding time to workout, find it difficult to get started, or can never seem to stay motivated than this success story is for you.
 
Drumroll please………. I give you Miguel and his 70 pounds in 9 months transformation.
