#74: Work-Life Balance Myth

Do you believe work-life balance is possible? Is it something we should even aim to achieve? Today, I’m tackling some heavy topics and digging deeper than the surface-level discussion we usually have around work-life balance. From guilt to privilege and the pursuit of perfection, this episode will help you better explore what balance is all about.

Things you will learn in this episode:

  • Why I don’t believe true work-life balance exists and why it shouldn’t be our goal anyway
  • A look at guilt and privilege and how it impacts the work-life balance discussion
  • What I think we’re really searching for and why it’s more important than so-called balance
  • How our current culture and illusions of perfection are distorting our views of what a balanced life looks like
