Prioritize Finding Work-Life Balance

In 2020, I learned how important it is to find the balance between work and life. I used to be more on a workaholic side, but being on a lockdown most of the year showed a lot of significant areas outside of work. Still, I have too many ideas related to professional and personal projects. To understand what is most important, I use the Pareto principle. I define my long-term goal and then assess the idea in terms of effort and result. If it fits into that 20% that brings 80% of the outcome, I prioritize it. This approach works perfectly both at work and in other fields of life.
