10 Quotes to Achieve Better Work-Life Balance

Life can take us on a wild and busy ride. It's easy to get swept up in work and the everyday demands of life and forget its true purpose. Along the way we learn to make trade-offs between professional endeavors and family, friends, community, and personal growth. To help you maintain a calm center here are 10 reminders to find balance in your work and life.

“You will never feel truly satisfied by work until you are satisfied by life.” - Heather Schuck

“Life will always get busy, make time to do the things you love.” - Lailah Gifty Akita

“Work is just a part of our Life, not vice versa. So Live life full time, work work, part time.” - Vikrmn, Guru with Guitar

“When you’re gone would you rather have your gravestone say, ‘He never missed a meeting.’ Or one that said, ‘He was a great father.’” - Steve Blank

“Take care of yourself: When you don’t sleep, eat crap, don’t exercise, and are living off adrenaline for too long, your performance suffers. Your decisions suffer. Your company suffers. Love those close to you: Failure of your company is not failure in life. Failure in your relationship is.” - Ev Williams

“Burnout is about resentment. Preventing it is about knowing yourself well enough to know what it is you’re giving up that makes you resentful.” - Marissa Mayer

How You Have Inspired Us

Gratitude from the Quotiful team.

This week we want to express our immeasurable thanks to our community. We are so grateful to share this journey with you. Everyday, our team is inspired to work harder and grow this community to ultimately help people live more inspired lives. Below we've shared a few quotes we frequently see in the app and expressed how thankful we truly are for the constant motivation.

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." - Eleanor Roosevelt. 

Whenever we see this quote pop up in the feed we are reminded of the beautiful future we envision for Quotiful. Our vision is plastered on walls, scribbled in notebooks, and carefully crafted in PowerPoint presentations but sometimes it's easy to lose sight of it. This quote keeps us focused and moving forward towards a greater goal. Thanks for keeping us inspired!

"Life always offer you a second chance. It's called tomorrow."

Things don't always go as planned and we've certainly made some mistakes along the way. There can be a bug in the app after a new update, a miscommunication among team members, or an unhappy user who we've failed to provide a solution for. Naturally, we easily criticize ourselves for these mishaps but this quote always reminds us to stay positive and do better tomorrow.

"It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live." - Albus Dumbledore

Quotiful's mission to make staying inspired a part of everyday life is an ambitious one, so much sometimes that we focus all of our energy on work and forget that at the end of the day starting a business should be fun. We're thankful to the Quotiful community for reminding us life is short and we ought to enjoy it while we can. 

Keep inspiring!
