It’s 2011- Time to Get Balanced
For some reason, I felt compelled to share this TED video. Perhaps it’s because I’m a new father and the ‘life’ part of work-life balance has been taken to a whole new level. Maybe it’s because today is Thursday which means that tomorrow I’ll see a slurry of TGIF status updates on Facebook. This kind of saddens me as it seems like there’s this prevalent mindset which is to spend five days a week doing something you dislike in order to pay for the two days of doing what you enjoy. That doesn’t seem very balanced. Balance doesn’t have to mean drastic changes, however. It can be as easy as simply paying attention to the little things. Just watch this video, it’s entertaining (and, hey, there’s a moral).
