Lately I have many discussions with friends and colleagues about achieving working and life balance. The discussions reminded of a book one of my athletes gave me almost forty years ago: The Giving Tree. I suggest all you coaches and athletes read it and meditate on it. How much can you give?
49 years into this coaching journey I am still try to achieve some kind of balance. It seems the nature of coaching is to give more without consideration for yourself. I hope I have a few more years to figure this out. You young coaches figure it out as early as you can and you will have a long and happy life reflected in your coaching.
