There is really no such thing as “Work-Life Balance”. It’s BULL$#%! and we are making ourselves crazy trying to find it!
With all the discussion about how to achieve work-life balance, we have overlooked a big problem with this idea: our lives are not supposed to be balanced with equal time for everything. When every priority claims itself as the most urgent, and there always seems to be more to do than time to do it, maintaining focus on your top priorities can be difficult.
Can you be the executive who thrives at business, the parent who volunteers at their child’s school, the friend who maintains an active social life, and yet still remain fit and fun? Maybe for a short time, but it certainly isn’t sustainable.
