Work Life Balance

So back, I go to 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 caring about you. They care about how much money they make, so keep that in mind.

  1. This as an excellent video on Work Life Balance! As Nigel says, “It’s the small things in life that matter. It is not who dies with the most toys.”

  2. My favorite quote in the video is “many work long hours at jobs they hate, to enable them to buy things they don’t need to impress people they do not like” . It is not wrong to work hard, to buy things or to impress people. It is about planning the ideal day and life and focusing on what is important to each of us, not on someone else’s definition of success.

  3. Employers car to the extent that it maximises profits. Many employers in Australia offer onsite day care not to be nice and fluffy but so they can attract talented young females.
