Balance. What does it mean? Why is it so important? How do you achieve it? What happens when you get out of balance? These are questions everyone struggles with personally and professionally. Tim Selgo, author of Anchor Up: Competitive Greatness the Grand Valley Way and Make One Play: Impact Your Success, touched on the subject in both of his previous works, as well as in over 300 speeches he has delivered during his career. In Moms and Dads Eat the Brown Bananas, Tim delves deeper into the topic of balance. He does so by presenting a fictional couple everyone can relate to, Walter and Alexandria, as they struggle through the challenges of balancing family, faith, work, and everything else life throws at you. So grab a banana, even if its a brown one, and follow along to discover some helpful tips you can use to find balance in your own life.
