Work-life balance is one of those topics of conversations that we all bring up around colleagues to make ourselves sound like better people. Sometimes I bring it up to help justify the crazy work hours I’ll put in. It is so easy to get caught up all of our professional hoopla and not leave enough time for yourself or the people around you.
Fast Company’s article entitled “This is what employers need to do when it comes to work-life balance,” takes aim at the various aspects that are associated with finding a healthy balance between work and life. I like this article because it brings up some good talking points for ourselves: 1. Am I the person I really want to be? and 2. Have I done anything meaningful today?
Work-life balance does matter, but so does meaningful work. There is time for both. Figuring it out isn’t easy though. If someone figures out the magical formula to it all, please let me know.
