I have been thinking about what Work – Life balance thing. I hear this phrase all the time – but what does this really mean?
When work is on, IT’s ON. That’s pretty much a given in most places I’ve worked.
Conversely, when there’s something major happening in your personal life, IT’s ALSO ON. So where does that leave you when there’s a clash?
Well if you do not have an understanding ‘better half’ at home or an understanding manager at work – then it leaves you in a hole. How can anyone possibly have a Work – Life balance without having an understanding ‘better half’ and ‘manager’? It is virtually impossible to please both sides; the trade off is a killer! And this would usually result in misery for the person in-between i.e. you.
