Work-Life Balance – Nigel Marsh

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.

He offers four observations:

There are careers and jobs that are incompatible with being involved with a balanced life.

It is our responsibility to design our own lives.  He states “never put your life in the hands of a commercial corporation.”

Spread out the timeframe over which you judge “balance.”  While a day is too compressed to get it all accomplished, he warns against the opposite of waiting until you retire to attend to the other critical parts of your life.

“Approach balance in a balanced way.”

Enjoy the video.  He gives a lot of food for thought.  I’ve also included his writing on the Resources page.

Most importantly, how do you accomplish balance in your life?
