Shattering The Work/Life Balance Myth - Forbes | Balance entrepreneurship and family | Scoop.it
Tired of being told you need work/life balance? It’s time to shatter the myth! Here’s how.
Erno Hannink's insight:
Life is filled with peaks and valleys where we will spend more time in certain pursuits at different times in our lives. Instead of worrying that we’re not in perfect balance, we should celebrate the times when we’re off balance – as these are usually the times when we learn the most.Instead of desiring work/life balance, we should seek inner happiness. It is through happiness that we will achieve success. Before going to bed each night, try thinking of at least two things that made you happy that day.
