Women believe that it’s not possible to be a career woman, an involved mother and a loving partner all at once. Because we want to give our 100% to every role we play. And that my dear leads to nothing but burnout. If you want to #HaveItAll it depends on how you define having it all”.
#HavingItAll can mean scheduling your time so that you are able to achieve about 80% of what you want in each area of your life. Trying to do everything at 100%, usually leads to stress, misery and failure. Which is exactly what I and many of us women do. We want to achieve 100% and do 100% for everything. But that is physically and mentally impossible for an average person.
· Knowing your strengths and using them
· Delegate stuff you are not good at or keen at
· Don’t be so hard on yourself if you can’t do something
· Your best is different from another’s best
· Stop vying for perfection
· Give yourself permission to #HaveItAll
The magic number might not be 80% for everyone. But the point is that it’s about acknowledging your limitations and understanding yourself better. #HavingItAll is definitely possible but have it at your terms and not one decided by the world.
