How I Learned To Stop Whining And Start Doing From #EntMEWomen Essay

You might have noticed the lineup of in this edition. You might have also noticed that they all have dual or triple or even quadruple sets of professional obligations, some voluntary and some not, not to mention having personal lives and relationships to maintain. Most of these women are far more overextended than myself, and yet almost all of them have a better grasp on work-life balance. I am constantly shoving my personal life by the wayside, neglecting my health, and in general, making excuses for not being capable enough to.

I think that my conversation with Sheikha Latifa also proved how irresponsible I have been- yes, I do manage a huge brand very responsibly, but I failed at something that is absolutely integral for a successful well-rounded person: . Tipping my scales in favor of irresponsibility included everything from cancelling my twice-weekly yoga classes to scheduling myself in for 10:30 p.m. mentoring sessions, phone calls, and meetings, to not eating all day due to “pressing” to-do lists.

There is much more to being successful than running a company smoothly- there’s also a measure of how good you are at outside of the professional sphere. I am not good at staying in charge of my own life, but after this edition goes to print, I will be- and if that means not working after 7:00 p.m., then so be it.
