Work. Life. Balance.

We hear the phrase often, but do we really stop to think about what it means? Is it mathematical? Does it mean working as many hours as you play? Does it mean working fewer hours than you spend with your family? Does it mean that you work hard at the beginning of your career in order to balance the leisure time you want to have at the end of your career? Is it prioritizing career versus everyday life? Is it balancing the multiple areas of your life?

In reality, it is all of these things.

So, how in the delicately balanced work/life world do you achieve even a modicum of equilibrium? Work/life balance is about finding a career that aligns with your core values. Finding work that is in balance with the interests and activities that energize you – THAT’S work/life balance. When you can Integrate your personal philosophy with your work philosophy. Finding work that you are happy to wake up for and reluctant to leave at the end of the day. Work that supports your family and that your family supports. Work. Life. Balance.
Ok. What’s next, you ask? Try an online tool to determine your core values.
