Balancing Work And Life Is A Lie

  • For some reason, we think balancing work and life should be our goal.
  • Even if you happen to achieve balance for a moment, it is not sustainable. As soon as something changes, shifts, etc., you will have to work to achieve balance again.
  • Trying to balance your life causes you to view every area of your life as a separate box…that has to be balanced.
  • A compartmentalized life (when every area of your life is a separate box) is an unhealthy life.
  • When you cannot perfectly balance your life, you feel like you’re failing.
  • Balance is a lie.

(Next week I’ll post what I think is an alternative to balancing life.)
