The simple loop to perfect life balance

Are you short on time? Do you seek personal growth? Do you suffer from chronic stress? And do you notice negative consequences for your mental and physical condition? Do you feel more and more “down” and does it cause insomnia? Do you long for peace of mind and relaxation?

A lot of factors play a role. It is possible that the balance between work and private life is not optimal. Or you may have too high expectations of yourself. And if not, there can be hundreds of other reasons.

Everybody is different. These problems cannot be solved by simple tricks. You solve it by reflecting on the situation and improving it. And you can start today. You will find the perfect balance in your life. It is possible for everyone. But it's up to you to take the first step.

Say goodbye to your bad habits. Make a change. You will no longer recognize yourself in a positive way within a few months.

The GRR-Loop

The GRR-loop is the iterative process of working towards optimal balance. This process consists of the following steps:

  1. Set goals
  2. Record time
  3. Reflect

Set goals

Don't know what you want? Do you know it, but do you find it difficult to give direction? Or do you know very well what you want, but does it remain an endless dream? A dream you can't get any closer to?

Whether you know what you want or not, both situations are hugely demotivating. It often happens that you don't see the point in what you are doing.

The solution is to set goals. First of all, it gives direction to your life. If you don't know where you want to go, it's very difficult to see progress. Setting goals is extremely motivating. You can look back and see the progression from where you were before. You automatically manage your time more effectively. You now know if it contributes to achieving your goals.

It also boosts your self-confidence. With Segro you can check whether you are still on the right track. At any time. It gives a feeling of satisfaction when you can spend the hours you have envisioned as you want.

Register time

Are you easily distracted? Do you know what you want to work towards? But if you want to work on it, you get demotivated?

Today we have social media, television, news (websites), and much more. All very interesting, but it also holds you back. The time you spend is not for your goals. Relaxation is good, but only when you choose to do so. Not when you actually want to work on something else.

Because of the mobile phones and push notifications, people are easily distracted. More and faster than ever before. The goal is to grow to a situation where you make conscious choices.

Time registration is the solution. It shows you how efficiently you have completed a task. For example, you want to learn to write a blog. You think you can do it in 4 hours, but in the end it takes 8 hours. If you didn't log your time, chances are you wouldn't even notice.

You also get factual insights into what you do. What you actually do says more about you than what your thoughts are. Your thoughts are often not reality when it comes to exertion.

An example: you have to do something that you dread. Time seems to slow down, and it seems to last 3 hours. But in reality it only took an hour. This also applies the other way around. When you have a lot of passion for something, time seems to go faster. An hour of effort feels flown by. You would say it was not an hour, but 20 minutes.

Finally, time registration makes reflection possible. Segro saves you time with an overview of all registered hours.


You work hard, but you don't see any progress? Or do you want to change something, but don't know how? Do you have trouble setting goals? You don't know who you really are? Don't you know your strengths and your weaknesses? All these problems, and many more, can easily be solved by reflecting.

You will be amazed at how easy it is to live your life from a good overview. A “helicopter view” of your life. You see what you spend a lot of time on, and where you spend too little or no time at all. Self-knowledge and awareness is the result, which is essential for self-improvement.

Reflection also provides perspective. You see where your strengths and weaknesses lie. It makes setting goals easy, and it will provide you with a better understanding of yourself. For example: imagine that you watch TV for 15 hours a week. Then a goal can be to bring this back to 10.

Reflection is especially crucial in combination with time registration. You will become the person you deeply want to be. Step by step you will grow. You will become happier and the ideal picture in your head will become reality.


A lack of time, no progression and stress can be overcome. By taking 3 simple steps, you will grow to the person you want to be. Set goals, record time and reflect.

You get direction in your life. You create intrinsic motivation and you increase your self-confidence. You will feel comfortable and relaxed. You will get to know yourself better than ever.
