Being off balance longer than that, however, can be dangerous to our relationships, our physical beings or our careers. The best way to gain and retain a sense of balance is by setting goals and sticking to your plan.
Having a set of goals to refer to regularly will help keep your feet planted on the ground and give your mind a focal point to bring you back to earth when something sidetracks you (either something good or something bad).
A well-lived life is a balancing act. If you're out of balance, it will show in your demeanor. You won't handle personal or business situations as best you can and that will eventually have a negative affect on your bottom line and the level of enjoyment you have in your everyday life.
Don't risk the detriment of being out of balance long term. Take a few moments each day to consider what might be pulling you off the course you've set for yourself. Then, schedule (and take) the actions necessary to even things out.
