One of the domains of the Balanced Life Equation (BLE) mentioned in chapter 8 of IN or OUT book is TIME.
Your life is like a movie tape rolling, and a balanced life is a theoretical state that does not really exist. As your own self, and everything around you is in a continuous moving state. And at every moment, there are new inputs that were not available at the prior moment of balance. So, your mind is in a continuous working state on every decision you make, in order to have such balance.
You may choose to make a zoom out of a moment and try to make a balance for a phase in your life and not a moment. As you may balance your life in a decade time frame, not on a monthly or yearly basis. For example, you are launching your new startup and you are expecting to be fully engaged with your new business for the first couple of years. Later you are planning to start a new family so by the end of the decade you will be married and owning your dream company. Another time frame is when people divide their lives into stages that are composed of several decades, so when they reach the retirement age they would start to rebalance their lives.
IN or OUT: A Practical Guide to Decision Making
It’s very hard to define the meaning of a balanced life, as what may sound like a balanced life to someone may be entirely out of balance to others. The term balanced life assumes that there are various aspects of our life that we try to balance. Or we try not to go out of balance by prioritizing a domain over the other. People in general name such domains as work and personal life. So, you find someone trying to be successful at work and raise a family. The question would be what domains are we trying or should be trying to balance? This is what I called Circle of Communication in In or Out book.
In brief, the Circle of Communication is anything that surrounds us, and we do or try to communicate with. We stand at the center of this circle, that expands to communicate with people like family, friends, and coworkers. Geographically reaching your building, neighborhood, city, and country. Even filling unrelated abstract spaces such as the internet, environment, outer space, or contacting your god by praying.
Everyone has a different set of priorities, whenever you have to choose between two different circles of communication. One famous question, work, or family first?
In In or Out book the Circle of Communication is one of the Balanced Life Equation (BLE) and Balancing Matrix (BM) domains.
