Work-life balance

by scott pickard

The most difficult challenge in parenting and life in general  is achieving “work-life balance.” Not much has changed in the workplace when it comes to those in charge (bosses) setting the standard at work by being able to work unlimited hours, nights, and weekends and expecting everyone else to do the same.  A person has to decide if achieving work-life balance is going to be a bedrock principle of their life, and then needs to have the resolve to follow through because there will be consequences: you will be out-worked (in terms of hours) and out-maneuvered (in terms of political face time) by others that either have chosen to not live by the same principle, or don’t have to.

Balance Work-Life Balance By the practice of company-sponsored freezing of their eggs, are women in effect selling away their self-determination over work-life balance? On Principle: The most difficult challenge in parenting and life in general  is achieving “work-life balance.”  Not much has changed in the workplace when it comes to those in charge (bosses) setting the standard at work by being able to work unlimited hours, nights, and weekends and expecting everyone else to do the same.  A person has to decide if achieving work-life balance is going to be a bedrock principle of their life, and then needs to have the courage to follow through because there will be consequences: you will be out-worked (in terms of hours) and out-maneuvered (in terms of political face time) by others that either have chosen to not live by the same principle, or don’t have to.  Life is full of trade-offs and this is one (and may be the most difficult one) that everyone who works will face.  Work-life balance is not a principle that needs to apply to everyone, but if you choose to define your life by this principle, then have the courage to accept the inevitable trade-offs but understand the gifts and go forward with no regrets. sp in general: time: Thrive Huffington | worklifebalance
