Work Life Balance

An age old dilema – for some.  I am fortunate enough to have almost figured this out at my ripe old age, but it doesn’t come easy.  Good post in On Balance today, brings the issue to light.  Can you teach work life balance?  I don’t think so.  And I don’t think you can place blame on your employer, or your kids, or your significant other or anything else.  It’s a balance you have to stive for – and strike – if it’s important to you.  And for a lot of us who are juggling a lot at once – striking the balance is key.  It’s not easy, but you just have to know limits.  You have to know your own limits and limits of those around you.  It’s not easy, but something to keep striving for.  Have a good weekend.

  1. You can certainly teach/train/coach people to set reasonable and negotiated boundaries, even with young kids. Most importantly, don’t wait for your company to initiate a work life balance porgram, work on what you can do for yourself. It’s about being proactive yourself first.
