The work/life balance is a myth. 60% of Americans in a poll indicated that they can not achieve a healthy, work/life balance. What if instead of a balance, we look at life as a blend? Sometimes we will have a little more life going on and sometimes we have a little more work going on but in the end, it will all wash out. Along with a discussion about the blend, I also offer up 5 practical strategies for working towards it.

After engaging in my own digital detox, the podcast is back with a reflection on that detox as well as looking at the past. Do we define ourselves by the actions of our past or do we learn from them. Some essentials questions to ask are: 

  1. What are some of our most important events/moments that have defined your life?
  2. How did those events/moments make you feel? 
  3. What lessons did you learn from those events/moments? 
  4. Do you still define yourself by those events and or moments?
