How to Create an Early Warning System for Work Life Balance

By Andy Kaufman

Jon’s head hits the pillow with a thud. Another day has come and gone…seemingly in a second. As he tries to drift off, his mind is filled with the blur he remembers as today. He slept in too long so he didn’t have time to exercise like he had wanted to. At work he was greeted by 45 new e-mails added to his already overloaded inbox and a week’s worth of interruptions before lunch. He barely remembers the afternoon, though he does recall losing his cool with a team member that brought some bad news. And he winces as he remembers how grouchy he was with his wife and kids when he finally made it home—late again. As he struggles to get past the regrets of the day, he promises himself, “That won’t happen again.” But deep down he knows that’s a hollow refrain he’s sung before….

Eric stares out the high-rise hotel window, overlooking the late night Los Angeles skyline. It’s Day 3 of a 4 day business trip. He’s not sure what he dislikes more: Not being able to attend his son’s baseball game tonight or the fact that his son doesn’t even seem to miss him being there. 70+ hour work weeks with extensive travel is taking a toll on his family, and on Eric. “I can’t sustain this pace,” he tells himself. “But how do I get off the train?”

Sheryl can’t believe the constant noise as she spends another night in room 308 of St. Francis Hospital. She’s recovering from cardiac surgery that saved her life after she collapsed at work two days ago. Sheryl started her career as a hard worker but over the years had grown into another workaholic at her growing company. Earlier this evening her doctor provided an update and strongly recommended she make significant changes at work and home to better manage the stress in her life. If she doesn’t, she might not be so lucky next time. As she tries to think over the noise of the place, she asks, “How did I get this far off course?”

I’m guessing that John, Eric, and Sheryl did not purposely set a course for where they are tonight. Somewhere along the way they got a little off course and didn’t realize it. Perhaps it was the winds of chasing a dream or the tide of reward & recognition. It might have been the pounding waves of fear & uncertainty that caused them to take their eyes off the compass, but regardless, they’re now headed for dangerous rocks and not sure how to turn the boat around.

Though your story is different, I work with enough people struggling with this issue that I am confident there are areas in your life that you’re sensing are off course and heading in a bad direction. How do you get back on track and stay there, despite the winds, tides, and waves of life?

The answer lies in a sailing story from a few a years ago. Once a year I go on a sailing outing up in Door County, Wisconsin with my friends Jim, John, and a few other invited guests. The waters of Green Bay make for a great backdrop for a weekend of relaxing and solving the world’s problems. There are great places to dock for the night, and we can typically navigate by sight since we know the area so well. One year, however, was different. We knew the forecast called for intermittent rain, but it wasn’t until we were out quite a ways that we started experiencing a cold, driving rain, lightning, strong, gusty winds, and tall, crashing waves. Between the rain and patchy fog, we were suddenly faced with not being able to navigate by sight. We probably would have been pretty worried except for three beautiful letters: G-P-S! With a map, a destination, and a Global Positioning System-based instrument on board, we knew where we were, where we wanted to go, and how to get there.

Knowing where you are is a critical concept in sailing, in projects, and in life. Since the experiences of work and life can fog up our vision, most of us need help to get a more objective understanding of where we are. I encourage people to create a Personal Instrument Panel© to help them stay on course. We need instruments to help us know when we’re off course as early as possible instead of waiting to until we hear the hull crashing into the rocks. For example, I’ve learned to trust my wife Sara. She can read me like a book and know if I’m off course. If Sara tells me she thinks I’m off course, I’ve learned to believe her even if I don’t realize it myself. I’ve also learned that if I’m short-tempered with my kids when they’re simply acting their age, it’s a “yellow light” that I could be off course. If I start failing to achieve the daily physical, intellectual, and spiritual goals I’ve set, a siren goes off to let me know things are not going well. How about you? How do you know when you’re off track?

Here's my May challenge for you.  Take some time in the coming weeks to develop your own Personal Instrument Panel©. The Personal Reflection Questions below will help you do this.  Your panel can be as simple as a set of bullet points on paper or in a Microsoft Word document. The key is to identify some areas and monitor the panel regularly. To give it real power, I challenge to share your panel with someone who will hold you accountable by asking you face-to-face how you’re doing.

Incidentally, the instrument panel idea works for projects and teams as well. Well written objectives with regular review help provide early indicators when things start going bad. Consider using the Team Questions with your team to identify how you can avoid hitting the rocks. Early warning systems to notify you when you’re off track are invaluable to an organization seeking to build a reputation of reliable delivery.

Jon, Eric, and Sheryl have some serious work ahead of them to get turned around. There are some areas that you and I do as well. Only you can choose where you want to head, but I strongly encourage you to take the Personal Instrument Panel© idea to help you stay on course once you set it. Have a great month!

Personal Reflection Questions

1. What’s an example of where you ended up way off course in an area of your life?

2. Looking back with the benefit of 20-20 hindsight, what were some early warning signs that could have been picked up that you were heading off course?

3. Who knows you well enough to know when you’re off course in one or more areas of your life? Would they actually confront you if they saw you heading off course?

4. Consider inviting one or more of the people from the previous question to a lunch or dinner. Talk to them about this concept and how you really want them to help you stay on course. Be open to what you hear back.

Team Questions

1. What are some examples where our team has ended up significantly off course?

2. Looking back, what are some consistent early warning signs that we’re missing or ignoring?

3. What can we do to our processes (start, stop, do more of, do less of) to help us pick up on those signs next time?

Opportunities to Help You and Your Organization

Grant: "Hey, remember that speaker we had last August at the off-site?  You know, the one who talked about the 10 Simple Steps to Mastering Change?"


Bill: "Is she the one that told the story about the dog and someone moving his dog food?"


Grant: "Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's right.  But I can't for the life of me remember any of the steps!"


Did you know that most people only remember about 10% of what they hear in a "typical" training class or keynote speech?  Think about that for a second.... Organizations pay many thousands of dollars to bring in speakers and only six minutes of each hour is actually remembered.  Ouch!


Don't get me wrong....I love to get crowds excited about a topic as they get engaged into the energy of a large group presentation.  But I learned years ago that if I really want people to benefit for the long term, my approach has to be far better than "typical".


I offer clients a process I call The Five Phases of Real World Learning©:

  • Assessment

  • Design

  • Delivery

  • Reinforcement

  • Accountability

In the Assessment phase, I use a variety of paper and electronic tools to assess where your organization is currently at.  The Design phase then heavily customizes the program (or series of programs) specific to the individualized needs of your organization.  The Delivery phase is where the customized content is provided in large or small group settings in a dynamic, engaging, interactive way.  (It's important to note that I don't allow "attendees"!  If you sit in one of my delivery sessions, you're a participant!)  You then have the option of implementing a variety of Reinforcement and Accountability strategies to make sure the learning is actually retained and put into practice.  The Reinforcement phase utilizes either audio tape/CD's, online content, or one-on-one mentoring/coaching to reinforce what was learned during the Delivery.  The Accountability phase allows you to get customized reports that provide you hard numbers on who is following up, their progress, and the overall change in behavior in the organization.


Some organizations decide to just engage me to do Delivery.  That's fine.  If you do that, you will get excellent content delivered in an engaging way.  People will thank you for bringing me in.  However, if you want learning that really sticks--that really penetrates your organization in the real world for the long term--The Five Phases of Real World Learning© are the best option for you.


Participants from previous sessions say things like:

  • “Very realistic, very applicable to our projects. Great class! I really enjoyed it!” Pharmacia

  • “Real-life, common sense” approach. U.S. Patent and Trade Office

  • “Andy was credible and spoke from experience.” McKesson Corp

  • "Appreciated the interactive approach, humor, and strong messages of the presentation." Cognizant Technology Solutions, Inc.

  • “Very impressive! I never once glanced at my watch all day!”  Microsoft

  • "Practical advice with relevant techniques!" Information Resources, Inc.

  • "Would love to have had a longer session!" Cognizant Technology Solutions, Inc.

  • "Glad I was able to attend, and look forward to sharing the information with my co-workers." University of Arizona

  • "Thanks! Very worthwhile!" CNA

Let's add your organization or association to the list of satisfied, learning organizations!  Below is a list of powerful, practical learning that you can bring in-house to radically transform your organization.  For each topic I can wrap The Five Phases of Real World Learning© around it to deliver powerful change for your organization.

Leadership Tools

By Andy Kaufman


Who was the best manager you ever had?  Can you think of them by name?  What is it that they did that contributed to them being the best?  When I ask this of people, I often hear things like, "He was trustworthy."  "She cared about me as a person."  "He stretched me."  "She was a great communicator."  "He was a creative problem-solver."


This month I'm zeroing in on the last two issues:  communication and creative problem-solving.  As I work to turn managers into leaders, I see these two areas as being a key differentiator.



Some people just seem to have been born with the ability to stand up in public settings and clearly articulate things such that people understand, buy-in, and take action.  I now make a living doing that, but you may be surprised to find out that this isn't due to some gene I was born with!  Less than 10 years ago I couldn't stand before a group of 10 people without being totally freaked out!  I was so nervous that I couldn't sleep the night before a presentation. 


Yet it was clear to me then that this was something that must change if I was to progress in my career, so I set out to radically improve my presentation skills.  As I received great teaching and a lot of practice, the intense stage fright turned into the passionate enthusiasm that I'm known for today.  And in the process my career soared from being a Manager to a Director to a Vice President to a business owner, professional speaker, and coach.


Improving your public speaking skills can add jet fuel to your career as well!


I've recently found a group that would have saved me years of development if I would have known about them back then.  It's called the Bill Gove World Famous Speech Workshop, and it has been instrumental in training many of the world's highest paid professional speakers, such as Brian Tracy and this month's Interview with an Expert, Zig Ziglar. 


But you don't have to aspire to be in my business to benefit from this session!  You can check out their web site at www.govesiebold.com. It's packed with pages of tips to help you improve your speaking skills.  Plus you can sign up for their workshops, purchase powerful presentation skills products from their store, and more!  I have had multiple conversations in the last week with Steve Siebold who now runs this business and I cannot speak highly enough about the value you will derive from these resources.  Check them out today at www.govesiebold.com



Creative Problem-Solving

Around four years ago I was introduced to a brainstorming and facilitation technique called mind-mapping.  It's a very right-brained process of breaking down a problem or issue, and I have found it to be light years beyond the bullet point or outline approaches I had used in the past. 


Though I won't go into the details of mind-mapping here, I'm asking you to trust me on this:  Learn how to mind-map!


Once you do, you'll learn that it's helpful to have a tool to capture the results of the process.  I have grown to love a tool called MindManager from an organization called MindJet.  Whether this is the first time you've heard about mind-mapping or you're a seasoned pro at the technique, you'll find this tool to be a powerful way to leverage the power of the technique.  I have referred many people to this product who come back later with overwhelming gratitude! 


Personally, I think it's a must-have tool for any leader who has to regularly brainstorm solutions, ideas, etc. To learn more about MindManager, click on the image below.


As you incorporate these Leadership Tools into your personal and leadership development, please let me know how you benefited from them!  Enjoy!

Interview with an Expert: Zig Ziglar


It's truly a pleasure this month to share an interview I recently had with Zig Ziglar, the world's most recognized name in motivation and training.  Zig is known around the world for his unique style and insights into the topics of personal development, sales, leadership, and much more.  His prolific writing and extensive speaking has shown him to be insightful, influential, and a man of solid gold integrity.  With this month's focus on work life balance, I wanted to get the perspective of a man who has lived the topic for many decades.

AK: First of all, Zig, thank you for taking time to share your insights with our subscribers.  I know this has been a very busy time for you personally, so we appreciate you making time for this.

ZZMy pleasure, Andy.  This is a topic very dear to me.

AK: An important aspect of a balanced life is maintaining proper expectations. What does work/life balance look like, Zig?


ZZIf you were to ask a thousand people what they seek most in life, after pondering it for a moment most of them would eventually (after they’ve considered wanting to be rich, happy, healthy, etc.)  acknowledge that what they really seek is a balanced life so they could have more of the things money will buy and all of the things that money won’t buy.

When I speak of balance, I’m not even mildly hinting that means that you spend the same amount of time on everything. We are physical, mental and spiritual, so we must deal with the physical, the mental and the spiritual, as well as our personal, family and career -- not to mention the financial -- aspects of our lives. Obviously, you’re going to spend more time earning a living and preparing for your family than you will in an exercise program. You will also spend more time sleeping than you will studying and preparing for your future. Balance means that in each area of life you devote a reasonable amount of time so that that part of your life is a healthy one.


AK: What do you see as some of the greatest challenges to living a more balanced life right here in 2002?


ZZ: The challenge we have is in the fact that most people do not properly plan to have a balanced life. We must understand that the major problem is that if we don’t plan our time, others will take our time. Most of us have noticed that people with nothing to do often want to do it with us, so the secret is developing a game plan.

Everybody acknowledges that we generally get far more work done on the day before we go on vacation than we do on a typical day. A moment’s reflection will explain why: It starts the night before the day before when you get out a sheet of paper or your laptop and list the things that are “must do” for tomorrow. That way, when you get to the job you have a game plan, and anybody with a game plan is going to be more productive than someone who deals with things as they “pop up.” This means that many times you are dealing with the crises of the critical and you are not dealing with the truly important, must-do things. So number one, make the plan. Lack of time is not the problem -- lack of direction is.

Failure to follow through on your own plan is a major cause of disappointment and frustration, but I challenge you to do it every night for even a week and you will discover that not only does your productivity go up, but you enjoy greater peace of mind and will soon recognize that if planning one day is so conducive to increased performance, you will soon discover that if you plan your personal time, your family time, your exercise time, and your personal growth time, that you will devote more attention to them. This takes care of the other phases of your life, eliminates many problems at home, improves your health and attitude, and, as a result, you have fewer difficulties on the job as well as at home.

Growth is essential in all of this, and that is where “Automobile University” enters the picture. Select things you need to know. A study done at the University of Southern California revealed that if you drive 12,000 miles a year and live in a metropolitan area, in three years’ time you can acquire the equivalent of two years of college education. Without a game plan we are far more inclined to fall victim to the whims and fancies of others and, in essence, we surrender our rights and opportunities to have that balanced life.

Priorities are critical in this area. Three of the most successful companies I am familiar with are Mary Kay Cosmetics, Home Interiors and Gifts, and Chick-fil-A. Mary Kay and Home Interiors both say that God comes first, family second and the business third. Chick-fil-A, which does over a billion dollars a year in business, refuses to open on Sundays. They believe the spiritual side of life is that important and they want to make certain their people have the opportunity to enjoy the balanced life. Without the spiritual impact, balance is impossible.

For those of us who are believers, it does make a difference. When I devote part of my day every day to drawing closer to God in the person of Jesus Christ, it definitely gives me a better and more productive day. It convicts me of the things I need to be responsible for and pay attention to. That includes family, work, health -- the whole nine yards. The results have been very encouraging to me.



AK: Between your speaking schedule, running Ziglar Training Systems, and your personal involvements, finding a balance that works for you and your family must be real challenge. What are your personal secrets to staying as balanced as possible?


ZZ:  Andy, I have to confess that I have no personal secrets. It simply revolves around what is important now, and since each phase of my life is important now, I deal with them in somewhat of an orderly fashion -- if not on a daily basis, certainly on a weekly basis. Since relationships are such an important part of all of our lives, and in most cases the most neglected area, I make doubly certain that my relationships with my wife, children and grandchildren are tended to on a very regular basis. It requires a plan to do these things.


AK: During this turbulent economy, many people are wondering how they can better prepare themselves to be more secure during difficult times.  I believe many of my subscribers will find your new "Thriving in any Economy" session quite valuable. What are some key things they would take-away from attending that session?


ZZ: One way to respond would be to consider what would keep people from attending the seminar in Little Rock. Number one, I suspect that some people might think, “I’ve already been to all of the seminars. I need to put what I already know into action.” Another thought might be, “I’m unemployed and can’t see spending money and a day listening when I should be out seeking a job.” Third, “I’m not certain the time and money investments would be justified.” And a fourth could well be, “I can’t imagine sitting all day in a seminar!” Five, “I listen to Zig Ziglar in my car every day and have read his books -- what else can he teach me? I’m not familiar with Flanagan and Dhanam, so I have no idea what they will bring.”

The answers to all of the objections are these: The seminar is absolutely loaded with “how to” and “why you should.” The theme of the program is “Thriving in Any Economy.” One of the prime thrusts will be the importance of why being employable is more important than being employed, because jobs do have a way of disappearing. But there are some people who are always in demand. We will identify these people and teach how you can become that kind of person.

We deal in that seminar with goal-setting, building winning relationships, helping to identify the characteristics of people and the best and most effective ways to deal with them. We’ll spend a considerable amount of time on the importance of understanding that both employer and employee have the same objective, and putting those objectives on the table and teaching how they can more effectively follow through on these objectives.

It’s a fun day; it’s an exciting day. More importantly, it’s a teaching day that prepares you for the future. Each speaker is uniquely different, will teach different concepts and techniques, and if, at the end of the day, a participant does not feel he or she received more than their money’s worth, we will offer a full, no-questions-asked refund.

This identical seminar in Tyler, Texas, produced dramatic results and an extremely happy and enthusiastic audience. Incidentally, for those who listen to my tapes and have read my books, I want to emphasize there is much new material that, unless they attended the Tyler seminar, they have not heard.

Zig, thank you again for taking time to share your insights with our subscribers.
