No, it’s not a myth. Contrary to the popular belief that managing life with work is near to impossible, Work–life balance can be achieved.
The first thing to understand about work-life balance is that most people have the wrong idea of what that actually means. They think that their whole life should be balanced. That they should have a little bit of work and a little bit of play and a little bit of time on the weekends, in order to improve their quality of life.
Almost all successful people work 6 days a week. Average people work 40, maybe even 30 hours a week. Now aside from actual time spent at work, the real problem comes down to what you accomplish while you’re at work.
Most people spend 50% of their time doing non-work related activities while they’re in the office.
The key to achieving work-life balance is Choose to manage your time.
Choosing to manage your time effectively is the starting point of overcoming the previous programming and eliminating mental blocks to time management.

Here are some tips:
- Use The Power Of Positive Affirmations
Positive affirmations, or positive self-talk, are commands that you pass from your conscious mind to your subconscious mind, that you either say out loud or to yourself, with emotion and enthusiasm to drive the words into your subconscious mind.
- Visualise Your Time Management Skills
Mental pictures almost immediately influence your subconscious mind. Begin to see yourself as well organised, efficient, and effective in time management.
- Take Action Based On Your Visualisations
Now that you have visualised and concentrated on what your day and your future will look like with proper time management, it’s time to put it into action.
