Shaping the Perfect Work-Life Balance for CEOs

When it comes to juggling home and career or managing their work, CEOs don’t get a pass on all the complexities of life that affect everyone; It can be difficult for them to find time for strategizing, generating ideas, and developing long-term goals because they’re constantly improving their enterprise. These dueling responsibilities can easily lead to burnout and sacrifices in the executive’s personal life to make more time for work.

Maintaining a good work-life balance is a challenge for the vast majority of workers. For CEOs, the problem is much bigger, driven by numerous factors: a huge workload, uncertainty, even the pressure to succeed. Thankfully, the concept of work-life balance has taken hold in the business environment, and many CEOs have their own tips and tricks for maintaining such harmony. Here are the four tips to find a healthy work-life balance.

Prioritize Your Downtime

As a CEO, your to-do list is never-ending and this is exactly why you need to schedule downtime. You may choose to take the weekends off, the evenings, or a completely different schedule depending on the needs of the business. Use your downtime with a purpose, whether you choose to use it to build connections with friends and loved ones, or just take a good short vacation. Find the time to recharge yourself because it’s important to fulfill your personal needs. 

Take Technology Breaks

When you take your downtime, you have to fully take it. This means no answering emails or taking calls when you’re off the clock. One of the best ways to really recharge is to take breaks from technology. Leaving your phone and laptop behind while you spend time with family or do anything you love is a great way to really be present or reflect and de-stress.

Establish Boundaries

Work will fill the time it’s given, so if you don’t create clear boundaries, it’s easy to let your life slowly become your work. One way to establish boundaries is to put a natural limit on certain work activities. For example, you can try scheduling meetings near the end of the workday. Thee meeting has to stop at a specific time so you can leave to spend time with your family. This kind of boundary can prevent work from creeping into your personal life.

Reduce Operational Involvement

It’s just impossible to run every aspect of day-to-day company operations. CEOs can create more value for their companies by focusing on what they do best and delegating the less necessary. To make sure every operation runs smoothly, CEOs can always utilize IoT monitoring solution. For instance, CEOs can manage every single one of their business asset through Telkomsel IoT Asset Performance Management, making the overall management process easier with automatic reporting, alerting, and insights gathering. By utilizing this solution, CEOs can now reduce operational involvement without worrying about their assets’ condition.

It is important to live your life when it feels like you can’t take any time away from your company. Take a day off from time to time and spend time with your family. The company will survive and may even be better off because you’ll be rested and ready for anything.
