Don’t Let Your Career Cause Regrets in Your Personal Life

Don’t Let Your Career Cause Regrets in Your Personal Life | Strategy and Leadership | Scoop.it
A former CEO reflects on the imperfection of work-life balance.
Chad Manske's insight:

We often read of former CEOs such as this reflect back on their lives yearning for more balance but couldn't see it while they were in the thick of things.  It's admirable but it's also late to need.  Today's CEOs, as he rightly recognizes must learn to naturally balance the tension between work, family and other commitments in a healthy, particularly because we are 'hard-wired' to our technology.  There is truly a balance and it's not too late to strive for the formula that works best for you.

donhornsby's curator insight, February 1, 9:31 AM
(From the article): What would we do without TED Talks? I don't know about you, but I would be less inspired. Less motivated. Heck, less of a leader! I've learned so much from TED Talks over the years, and when asked to do this article, I beamed like a kid in a candy story. There are so many stellar speakers with jaw-dropping messages, it was hard to pick just nine. While the list is in no particular order, the first one, by Shawn Achor, ranks as my all-time favorite. Have at it. Take some time to reminisce over your favorites. Bring the popcorn. Dim the lights. And share the knowledge!
