Does life really stop at 8 am and start up again at 5 pm? Does your work actually stop once you’re heading home for the day? Probably not. Especially for business leaders in fast-paced companies.
Work and life are practically inseparable.
The idea that you can compartmentalize everything into either work or life doesn’t mesh with reality. For most people work and life are practically inseparable and you have one life to fit it all in.
A more realistic and more gratifying goal is better integration between work and the rest of life. You will find more peace within a Work/Life Integration rather than a Work/Life Balance.
