“We need to stop judging other people’s work-life balance.” — Gary Vaynerchuk
It’s summertime in the US, during which time, none of us want to think about work. It’s all about unplugging and taking time off. Rightfully so.
Apropos of that, for the next four episodes including this one, we’re taking a look at this balancing act that we all have to perform – between work and everything else in our lives outside of work.
First up, let’s chat about that phrase “work-life balance”.
Yes, there is a larger conversation around whether work-life balance even exists or not. But for this episode, let’s not quibble about the term.
Let’s instead look at how we can define what work-life balance means for us. And if there’s even such a thing as the right balance. A standard of sorts.
Work-life balance is a very personal thing. Let’s not judge — or worse, shame — other people’s work-life-balance based on our own definitions.
