Balance is Not a Four Letter Word
To my surprise and delight it seems the world is awakening to the value of balance. Today’s #OutsideWork posts on LinkedIn shared by influencers resonate with well-being and balance’s impact on success. I have been busy interviewing leaders for my upcoming book, BE-ing @Work. The emphasis on well-being and balance is increasingly apparent in the stories they shared. Far beyond the implication of physical health and productivity, lies the connection with self as well as with others to BE one’s best and thrive in that. Balance seems to have overcome its outdated reputation for meaning flexible hours for working mothers. This shift has left me with a strong sense of hope in the future. Practice and implementation may be a way off, but the conversation has evolved. Let’s keep it evolving from preaching to implementation and practice.
Note: Slots still available for interviews on BE-ing @Work throughout February. If interested in sharing your story about interventions or actions you use to bring your best self to work and bring out the best in others, please contact me. Highly productive individuals who suffer from chronic syndromes or illness. (i.e. Depression, Lyme, MS, …) are of particular interest, but not required.
