Max Salk is not only a financial analyst but a landscape photographer. Living in a busy area such as New York City, it may seem impossible to be able to find the perfect balance between business and personal life. However, this is not the case with Salk. He recently did an interview with Positive The Facts to describe how he keeps his sanity while living in one of the most intense cities in the world. 

The first way is to keep his life simple. Max Salk is not a person to chase after the latest and greatest technology if he can’t find a way that it will increase productivity in his life. In fact, he still rocks an ipod to this day.

Another way that Salk keeps his life as simple as possible is by preparation. He gives the example of waking up on a foggy morning in Netherlands. Instead of just walking out of the door to fight the fog, he decided to grab his camera and take some pictures of the harbor. Now, those pictures are featured on his photography website and they even helped launch his hobby into a second career. 

While it is good to be prepared, it is also imperative to be able to adjust when necessary. Salk says that it is necessary to be able to change and not try and plan every second of your day. Even if you do have a plan, it should always be able to be changed. As a photographer, Salk must be able to wait whenever the lighting is right outside to get the perfect picture. This could mean adjusting your day by a few hours to get it right.

Making every moment count is also important to Max Salk. Although he spends many hours analyzing data for his company, most of his colleagues only see what he suggests. Instead of letting that get to him, he decided to make his moment count by putting just as much effort in his presentations. The moral of the story is to make sure that people understand what you feel is passionate to you.

There are so many tips that Max Salk can give to show people how to find balance in life. While he does work hard, he works even harder to have the best personal life possible. With his tips and tricks, everyone can be able to do so too.
