Work-life balance is giving proper attention to the things in my life that I say are important. I prioritize my work but today is about prioritizing Ericka. “Hey Ericka, can you...?” “Hey Ericka, can we...?” “No” to all of the above is saying yes to myself. What do you need to say no to this week so you can prioritize what’s truly important? I’ve had to learn just because it’s on my list or because I’m focused on it doesn’t make it a priority nor does it equate to importance. #PowHerMoves | Fairygodboss

Hi Ericka! I recently talked to a good friend of mine about how she achieves better work / life balance. She said when she gets asked to do something, she makes sure that there is some type of value add for her personally. If there's not, then she usually says no (note, I think she was referring to non-work related (personal) favors and asks).

I love that question! It really puts into perspective the potential project's importance. The answer to that question could also be a talking point with upper management to get some help with your workload.

My key litmus test is: If I take on this new project, what does it mean I won’t be able to do? This question provides the perspective I need to make the call. I use this to prioritize for myself and my team.
