Is Work Life Balance Possible?
Connie‘s motivational quote is by ~ Zig Ziglar
“I believe that being successful means having a balance of success stories across the many areas of your life. You can’t truly be considered successful in your business life if your home life is in shambles.”
For years, we have been hearing inspirational speakers tell us that we can have it all – that we can balance work (i.e. having a rewarding career in a corporate environment, and being credible enough to achieve senior leadership positions) and life (i.e. the spouse, the kids, the family pet and even occasional brunch with friends). Later with the introduction of mobile devices and globalization, some have said it’s not about work / life balance, it’s about work life integration.
Really doesn’t matter what we call it…right?Do you have it in your life or do you feel like the word balance is nothing more than a pipe dream?
Kind of sad that many of us have to choose to miss dance recitals, or soccer games due to work demands. The reality is that we need to work and need our jobs to pay the bills for the dance and soccer lessons.So where and how do we draw the line?
