Is Work-Life Balance Possible?

work-life-balance

Whether you work at an office, in a field, on an airplane, in a hospital, or at your home, the amount of time you spend working always competes for the time you spend doing other things. Sometimes, people call the tug and pull of that competition “work-life balance,” as though work and life are competing interests.

This week at the High Calling, we are talking about that struggle, but we are changing the definitions a little. We don’t think work competes with life. We see work as an important part of a full life that also includes rest and leisure. In other words, we acknowledge the struggle of balancing our time; we just don’t want to discredit the value of your work along the way.

So, join us this week? We’d love for you to add your voice to the conversation. Click on the badge below for all the great content. Leave a comment on posts that strike a chord.

Let me know where you are struggling and succeeding in your own work-rest-leisure balance.
