TJP 02: Deciphering The Juggle

TJP 02: Deciphering The Juggle
Join Jo and Lucy as they discuss their views on the meaning behind concepts like “the juggle”, “work/life balance” and “boundaries”.


Three key take aways from the episode are:
1. The dictionary definition for juggle is: “continuously toss into the air and catch (a number of objects) so as to keep at least one in the air while handling the others”. (Source: Google dictionary)
2. The four burners theory which describes the four quadrants of your life and raises the question of the need for trade offs in order to be successful (see James Clear)
3. Theming your days as a way to put in place boundaries to prevent your work overly impacting on other areas of your life.

    Thanks for sharing Ladies. I can see why we had a good laugh. We share very similar views on this subject. Interesting perspectives on boundaries and The Juggle. I like the 4 burner approach and the daily themes, very interesting insights.

    How would I define success. For me, it’s not “having it all” as that changes for me from year to year (sometimes month to month) depending on what i’m juggling at that point in time. Success for me is enjoying where I am, in the here and now. I’m a bit like Lucy where I’ll always strive for that “next”, whatever I have decided that will be, whether it be personal, family or work. I need to dedicate more time on my current success and focus on the now more. There’s some homework for me I wasn’t expecting!

      Glad to give you another job to add to your list! I like your definition of success. I still have to remind myself to focus on now sometimes too. It’s too easy to get caught up in what is coming next! Lucy
