I’ve never been a fan of the term work/life balance. It implies that to be happy, we need our work and life to be equal. In reality, that isn’t always possible or what we need or want. Life is all about ebbs and flows. Sometimes, we might need to focus on work and other times; our priority is life.  

I’ve talked about living a life based on harmony, where every day, we focus on achievement and enjoyment.   I love this, but when I found PRIME, I found it a better framework designed to revolutionize my daily routine and transform my life. PRIME isn’t just a catchy acronym; it’s a roadmap for achieving holistic success and fulfillment in five key areas: Physical Body, Relationships, Income, Mindset, and Enjoyment. By integrating daily practices and cultivating a clear vision in each of these domains, you can lay the foundation for a truly exceptional life.

Let’s explore PRIME. 

What is PRIME?

Physical Body: This is all about taking care of your body.  Your health is your greatest asset. Prioritize activities that nourish your body, such as exercise, proper nutrition, adequate sleep, and mindfulness practices like yoga or meditation.

Relationships: The secret to a happy life is having deep relationships.  Cultivate meaningful connections with loved ones, friends, and colleagues. Invest time in nurturing these relationships through open communication, quality time together, and acts of kindness and appreciation.

Income: Let’s face it, money can be stressful.  Therefore, take charge of your financial well-being by setting clear goals, developing valuable skills, and exploring opportunities for growth and advancement in your career or entrepreneurial pursuits.

Mindset: Your mindset shapes your reality. Cultivate a positive and growth-oriented mindset through daily practices like affirmations, visualization, journaling, and seeking out learning opportunities that challenge and inspire you.

Enjoyment: Life is meant to be lived to the fullest. Make time for activities that bring you joy and fulfillment, whether it’s pursuing hobbies, exploring new interests, or simply taking moments to appreciate the beauty of the world around you.

If you spend time each day on each area of PRIME, you will live a very fulfilling life. 

PRIME your vision

To harness the power of PRIME, it’s essential to have a clear vision of what success looks like in each area.  Keep in mind that what success looks like to me will be different from what success looks like to you.  Start with creating your vision for each area:

Physical Body: Picture yourself feeling energized, vibrant, and strong. Imagine engaging in activities you love with ease and vitality.

Relationships: Envision deep and meaningful connections with the people who matter most to you. See yourself surrounded by a supportive network of friends and loved ones.

Income: Visualize financial abundance and security. Imagine achieving your career or business goals, enjoying financial freedom, and having the resources to live life on your own terms.

Mindset: See yourself as resilient, optimistic, and empowered. Visualize overcoming challenges with grace and embracing opportunities for growth and personal development.

Enjoyment: Imagine a life filled with moments of joy, laughter, and fulfillment. Picture yourself savoring experiences that bring you happiness and contentment.

Taking Action: The PRIME Daily Checklist

Now that you have a vision for each area, it’s time to take action. I like to create a daily checklist of activities that I can do each day in varying time increments.  That way, on those days that are hectic and I only have a minute, I know exactly what to do to still PRIME my day.   Here are some examples that you can use to get your checklist started:

Physical Body:

  • 1 Minute: Stretch or take deep breaths to release tension.
  • 10 Minutes: Go for a brisk walk or do a quick bodyweight workout.
  • 30 Minutes: Prepare a healthy meal or engage in a yoga session.
  • 60 Minutes: Hit the gym for a full workout or go for a run outdoors.


  • 1 Minute: Send a thoughtful text or make a quick phone call to check in with a friend.
  • 10 Minutes: Have a meaningful conversation with a loved one over coffee or tea.
  • 30 Minutes: Plan a fun outing or activity with friends or family.
  • 60 Minutes: Schedule a date night or dedicate quality time to connect with your partner.


  • 1 Minute: Review your financial goals and track your expenses.
  • 10 Minutes: Research opportunities for professional development or side hustles.
  • 30 Minutes: Update your resume or work on a project that enhances your skills.
  • 60 Minutes: Network with professionals in your industry or brainstorm business ideas.


  • 1 Minute: Practice gratitude by listing three things you’re thankful for.
  • 10 Minutes: Read an inspiring book or listen to a motivational podcast.
  • 30 Minutes: Meditate or engage in visualization exercises.
  • 60 Minutes: Attend a personal development workshop or seek out a mentor for guidance.


  • 1 Minute: Take a moment to appreciate something beautiful in your surroundings.
  • 10 Minutes: Engage in a hobby you love, such as painting, gardening, or playing music.
  • 30 Minutes: Explore nature on a hike or enjoy a leisurely bike ride.
  • 60 Minutes: Plan a weekend getaway or indulge in a self-care spa day.

Now, it’s your turn to create your checklist with items that excite you.


By incorporating the PRIME framework into your daily routine and committing to consistent action, you can unlock your full potential and create a life of abundance, fulfillment, and joy. Remember, success is not just about achieving goals; it’s about living with purpose and intention in all areas of your life. So, PRIME your day, PRIME your life, and watch as your dreams become your reality.

If you incorporate PRIME into your day, let us know how it goes. 

The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiance.
