FINDING BALANCE BETWEEN WORK AND HOME
Presented by Kathy Espinoza, Keenan & Associates

For working adults, striking a balance between work and home is always a challenge. This session will show participants how to find a balance point at the end of each workday so they can fully focus on life after-work...no more 'iPad orphans' and neglected spouses. Learn practical steps to clear your mind at the end of each day so you can relax and find daily balance in life.

BEYOND SMART – HOW VALUES BASED GOAL SETTING CAN HELP YOU ACHIEVE YOUR DREAMS
Presented by Stephanie Smith, City Clerk, City of Murrieta

For decades people have been told to set SMART Goals: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time Based.  But if that was all it took to achieve the life of our dreams, why do we set the same goals over and over, or make the same New Year’s Resolutions time and time again?  Because our goals aren’t in alignment with our values.  Values are like directions on a compass, they are never ‘achieved’ but they can influence the quality and clarify the purpose of your life journey. Values are not something that you can store in a box and put away; we live with them from moment to moment; they are active and ongoing. This session will help participants clarify their core values and identify the “why” to their “what”.  When goals are assessed using our core values, they are 10x more likely to be achieved, and leave us more satisfied in the accomplishment.
