“Work” on Your Work-Life Balance
Work-life balance is one of the biggest challenges faced by most working people.
In this TED video on work-life balance, Nigel Marsh makes a profound statement…
“We need to face the truth that governments and organizations are not going to solve the work-life balance issue for us. It is up to us as individuals to take control and responsibility for the types of lives we want to lead. If you don’t design your life, someone else will design it for you, and you may just not like their idea of balance.”Nigel Marsh
Leading yourself includes designing your life so that others don’t design it for you. High achieving leaders leads themselves so that they are able to lead others, results and business better.
Design a “middle-way” solution as Nigel recommends. It need not mean a dramatic upheaval in your life. With the smallest investments in the right places, you can have a life of high quality.
