Keeping Perspective & Achieving Balance In the face of Rapid Change & Stress

Keeping Perspective & Achieving Balance In the face of Rapid Change & Stress

If you are juggling multiple responsibilities under continual stress and pressure in the face of rapid change, you may be experiencing the THREE RING CIRCUS SYNDROME!

Do you feel like the performer who has to keep juggling more and more items? Does it seem you’re constantly dashing from one major “ring” of your life to the other, carrying a few monkeys on your back as you go? Are changes flying toward you as fast as trapeze swings? Are you expected to perform budget balancing and employee taming with insufficient resources? Do you sometimes feel like a defenseless furry forest creature with wild lions and tigers roaring at you at work and at home?

Does the prospect of balancing all of the aspects of your life seem as unlikely as walking a circus tightrope?

You are not alone! As a nation, we are working more and playing less. Our working hours have increased by 20% over the past decade, while leisure time has decreased by 32%. And stress-related illnesses — the fastest growing segment of worker’s compensation claims — have more than doubled in the past decade.

The solution? To learn to shift perspective and develop skills that help you handle stress, cope with change, face risk, and maintain balance among all the different elements of life.
