We all want that ‘good work / life balance’.
What happens in reality is that we don’t achieve our best results when we are nicely balanced.
In practice, we are at our best when we are purposely out of balance. We do our best work when we are totally absorbed in the business for a decent length of time or period of days, weeks, or even months.
And we enjoy our leisure or family time most when we are completely cut off from the business in the evenings, at the weekends, or on holiday.
The trick is to compartmentalise and protect the periods inside or out of the business.
But not for too long, or you’ll have no business or family to return to.
