#20 How To Get Work-Life Balance
We live and work in a hyper-connected, fast-paced society - and the truth is that there will always be some form of distraction, urgency, or emergency to respond to. There will always be people, problems, and feeds that will demand your attention and drain your energy.
The way to gain work-life balance is to learn a specific set of skills that will allow you to take control of how and where your time is spent, together with mastery over the skills of influence and positive persuasion, so that you can enlist and empower the right people to help you get the important work done. No more burning the midnight oil, and no more feeling overwhelmed about your workload, and guilty about not being present with the people you care about.
By the end of this episode, you will learn these two key skills to cultivate work-life balance so that you can create the personal and professional success that you want.

What other people are saying about Tanya:
Gregg, Chief Technology Officer
"We had the pleasure of working with Tanya as a Management group and then also on a 1:1 basis. This allowed us collectively focus on our team performance and then also use Tanya's experience and knowledge to help us focus and prioritise on a personal and individual level to also contribute to those team goals. Tanya is fun to work with and very encouraging, very valuable training and insights gained - highly recommended."
Pratik, Managing Partner
"You can read all those books and listen to podcasts to plan and energise your thoughts, but when it comes to implementation and seeing it through, you need to be accountable. Remember - it’s always on you! Tanya makes it simple to build your routine in a way that gets you more productive outcomes. Even Warren Buffet needed a coach. It’s the best investment."
