Work has existed for centuries, you would think that by now, people would have already figured out how to achieve work-life balance. Unfortunately, despite all the technological advancements and other developments in the work process worldwide– the answer to a well-balanced life has yet to emerge. The business world is fast-paced, which is why working people have a harder time achieving work-life balance. For instance, due to the financial pressure of a fast-paced industry, employers would expect more from their staff. The weight of reaching a specific result would force employees to work more hours than they should.
You have to admit that you are not working late hours in your office out of the goodness of your heart. Most of the time, you do extra hours for extra pay, due to workplace culture or due to feeling obliged to put in more hours.
Up until now, work-life balance is still a topic of debate. Is it really possible to achieve it? It takes a bit of getting used to and sometimes you may not be able to follow the routine at all times. But you will never know if you can do it unless you try. Not convinced? Maybe TEDx Speaker Jahan Kalantar can help you.
