“Life is like a seesaw”
Life inevitably provides a number of ups and downs, highs and lows.
Over the last 2 years I’ve been conducting some research around the areas of work-life balance. In truth the whole experience has been fascinating and enlightening. Meeting and speaking to so many different people who do such a diverse set of occupations and have such weird and wonderful vocations.
This research itself has covered a number of areas including;
- a survey to understand more about what it means to different people
- a series of experiments / challenges to understand more about how time plays an important part
- short interviews to further understand what balance people have in their lives
The research and learning continues (for myself as well).
What I have determined is that for most of us, work-life balance isn’t achievable. It’s a myth which we have been sold and which in a lot of cases we still strive for.
Until the next time thanks for reading
