I saw this photo and it resonated with me except that it spoke about balance.
A few years ago I thought it was about balance. Work and life, fun and business, finding that sweet space where you can have all these things all at the same time. I realized that it’s a challenge to find that balance. I’ve learned to accept that I will not be able to do everything I want to do at the same time. There always is a sacrifice.
That is why I now strive towards bringing my whole self in whatever I’m doing. So at work I realized I am driven because it allows for flexibility so I can function as a better parent, wife, athlete ,etc. In turn I don’t count the hours at work nor do I mind working on weekends. I also have no need to constantly escape from it. It’s good too that there are digital tools for work and colllaboration that allow for this type of lifestyle to operate more optimally. I’ll write more about this approach in the weeks to come 🙂
