For some of us, work/life balance feels like wishful thinking – a dream that can never possibly come true. We are “on” 24/7 – on Facebook, on the Internet, on at work, on our cell phones, on at our kids’ activities, on-on-on! How can we possibly achieve balance in that kind of world??

And to top it off, contrary to what some folks think, it’s not always easy being a librarian. Expectations are up, funding is down. Demands from patrons are up, staffing is down. There’s simply no balance there either.

And yet…there are steps we can take to help us regain some balance in our lives. We’ll take a look at what’s urgent in our lives, what’s vital, the difference between the two, and how we might want to allow for both.
