It’s important that the days are balanced properly between your business and personal lives. As this new year gets under way, you may want to consider taking control of your calendar and ensuring it includes just not your work demands but also your personal tasks.

He advises you to increase your personal time by cutting back mindless TV and Internet browsing. “Having healthy work-life balance is a key to life.
