Balancing work and your personal life usually isn’t an easy task. We all want to be “winning” at everything; have perfect relationships, stay in awesome shape, and still be super-productive at work. But seriously, who has the time to stay on top of it all without neglecting at least one of these aspects? If you’re having a hard time juggling all this, we hear you, and we want to share a winning game plan.
Recently, we had a special guest blogger, Martin Bjergegaard, who shared his tips on how to fit running into a busy schedule. Martin is an expert when it comes to finding the time to stay fit while keeping his work/life balance in check. He is a best-selling author, public speaker and entrepreneur and has written extensively on the subject. So, when we asked him if he would be willing to help enlighten our users on how to achieve this perfect equilibrium, he said “Sure!”
He has agreed to give a few lucky readers a signed copy of his best-selling book “Winning Without Losing: 66 Strategies for Succeeding in Business While Living a Happy and Balanced Life“, and one will also receive a one-on-one personal coaching session with Martin via Skype!
How do we choose who will be the winners of his book and coaching session? Easy. We want to hear what your personal tips are on how you fit workouts into your day. We know our Endomondo community knows how to stay fit, so let’s hear from you! Post your workout scheduling tips on our Facebook, Google+ or Twitter with the hashtags #WinningWithoutLosing and #Endomondo by Wednesday, September 17th to be eligible to win.
The authors of the best tips will be chosen as the winners, and announced on the 18th of September on our Facebook, Google+ and Twitter. So, start writing and tell us all the ways you win without losing!
