Work Life Balance…
is an old idea. At least in the traditional sense of it. According to my guest on today’s podcast, we need to rethink the expectations we place on ourselves in this day of the “laptop lifestyle”, where we are never more than inches away from being accessible and connected, even when we are technically “off-shift”.
There is a better way.
Dr. Serena Reep shares her ideas around why the old thinking of having to balance our work lives with the rest of our lives is doing us a disservice, and how to re-frame the word “balance” into something that is more useful and modern. I found our conversation refreshing and inspiring.
