So back I go to Ted.com to find an interesting piece by Nigel Marsh about Work/Life balance. I have ranted about Work/Life balance many times, and I think I am doing a better job about it, but Nigel’s fairly blunt presentation I think is quite refreshing to hear.
Work-life balance, says Nigel Marsh, is too important to be left in the hands of your employer. At TEDxSydney, Marsh lays out an ideal day balanced between family time, personal time and productivity — and offers some stirring encouragement to make it happen.
I like the quote about how no company is really caring about you, they care about how much money they make, so keep that in mind.
