Life has a way of bringing you the unexpected.  How many times have you had a busy schedule only to find one more thing added to it?  Have you ever made plans for a meeting, dinner, or an event only to find that it was cancelled?

First, let me say that life is a balancing act.  Also, no one will ever get their life balanced.  Having a well-balanced life first start with understanding that balance is a state of mind.  It’s understanding that life is never stable but always in motion and ever-changing.  There is no way to equally or evenly distribute everything in your life.  A balanced life is bringing all the things of your life into harmony.

To bring balance and harmony to your life there has to be a realization one of the most important life skills.  One of the most important life skills is to be coachable.  One of the best ways to bring harmony to your life is by being coachable.   Harmony is the ability to move forward.  Moving forward can be very difficult if you are not coachable.
