14. Take Vacations
Even a dream job gets tiring after a while. Vacations give you the chance to de-stress, relax and enjoy. Whether you take a road trip or jet off to an exotic locale, leave work behind. Don’t check emails (or limit how often you do), and resist the urge to check the status of projects. It will all be there when you get back.
15. Don’t Beat Yourself Up
No matter how well you plan, life isn’t always orderly. If you occasionally spend more time away from family and friends than you like, roll with it. Even the most carefully conceived schedules get thrown off. Think of balance as something that you always strive for, knowing inside that it is a fluid state of affairs.
