1) Lying or

2) Selling you courses or books on work-life balance. There is no balance. There never will be balance because work is important and so is family life.

Balance means that neither receives the focus they deserve.

Sometimes it will get out of kilter. And that’s why what you’ll want to do is you fit your work into your lifestyle and vice-versa.

How I’ve done that is I’ve worked for myself, meaning that I can fit my work around my life and my life around my work. If you’re working for a big corporate, this will never happen.

They may talk about work-life balance, but in reality, everything is geared towards work and not your life.

So if you want to create a life that’s worth living and engaging with, work for yourself so you can intergrate your work into your life.
