Episode 8 – Reframing the Work Life Balance Conversation

This week we’re discussing work-life balance. 

And an important perspective I believe is missing from this conversation. 

Work-life balance is personal. Everybody wants something a little different for themselves.

But most of us seem to get stuck in the never ending trying to “make it,” to balance everything on our plate without dropping a ball. It never seems to end and can be exhausting!

So today, I’m reframing this conversation so that you can let go of trying to “make it” and focus on enjoying your life and work more. 

Here are the highlights 

(1:24) Taking it seriously 

(3:18) It’s exhausting

(4:48) Dropping the ball

(8:00) Enjoying the journey
