The Art of Balance Cheat Sheet

To more widely distribute the ideas and practices in The Art of Balance: Staying Sane in an Insane World, I’ve started to create supplements to the book. As I create them, I’m making them available to new subscribers, and I wanted to make sure that you get them, too.

The first is The Art of Balance Cheat Sheet. This little booklet introduces the characters in The Art of Balance and walks the reader through how to apply the six-step system for restoring and maintaining balance. This example is Work/Life imbalance. Others will follow.

I’m very interested in your ideas of new ways to apply this system to internal and external unbalancers.

Please post your ideas in the comments area, email them to me, or post them in The Balance Lab group on Facebook.

Thanks!

More anon,

David

  1. I applied the six-step plan to a new situation in my life, retiring from my lifelong profession and building a different life:

    Detect – the need for activity and creativity after relinquishing the structure of the work week – and the need for a satisfying identity to replace the discarded one.
    Asses – what was I giving up, what could replace it? – looking at my abilities and life experience carefully.
    Plan – research, find, and open myself to new involvements, relationships, and interests outside of my comfort zone.
    Restore – add to, or enhance existing, affirmative activities to my daily life.
    Integrate – gain a sense that what I’m changing is right for me – if it’s not, move on to something better.
    Maintain – monitor my sense of well-being – if creative endeavors are stalling, then I know I need a course correction (and that could be as simple as setting aside time more intentionally).

    Thank you, David, for setting out all of these important steps. When put together, they are amazingly effective.
