Snippet: Are you living your passion? As success coaches, people often come to us because they want to enjoy life by living their passion. They realize there is more to life than what they are experiencing. Mark Twain addressed that when he said, “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”

To find and pursue your passion can apply to many areas of life, but as an example we’ll look at finding passion in a career. Fortunately, we love what we do, but could you imagine having to go to a job daily that you hate? While we all have to make money to survive, we all deserve to feel fulfilled after completing a hard day’s work. Sure, there is a paycheck at the end of the week, but does that really make up for all the unhappy time? The answer to that question is certainly no.

We are reminded of a quote by Les Brown when he said, “Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.”

Following your passions and living it will help you live your best life, instead of living your fears. Find where your passion can make a difference.

With Employee Burnout And Rising Mental Health Issues – It Is Okay Not To Be Okay

“You compartmentalize your life, and what we’ve learned during Covid is that it’s all blending…It’s OK to say that I need help, because the truth of the matter is we are all needing a little bit of help during this time. You don’t have to have the ‘S’ on your chest—be ‘Superwoman.’ It could simply mean, ‘I’m spent.’ That level of honesty and vulnerability will go a long way in this environment, because men are also exhausted.”

Thasunda Brown Duckett, CEO, Chase Consumer Banking

“There’s a very fine line between working from home and sleeping at the office”

Kevin Sneader

“There’s a very fine line between working from home and sleeping at the office, and for many people, the lack of a boundary between home and office has become the issue. So really resetting the norms, the norms by which we work, in a world where commutes and cubicles have gone, and instead it’s constant interruption, the kids are in the room, and so on—how do you create a boundary?…Having active dialogue in business around what that looks like so that it’s acceptable and understood is vital. It’s not happening enough.”

Kevin Sneader, global managing partner, McKinsey & Co.

Hello Worklife Harmony – A new work-life ‘harmony’ terminology or clarification is coming up because the word ‘balance’ is giving some confusion or miss-understanding to some people. For example, work-life balance is speculated to mean achieving balance between work and life responsibilities. And assumingly, some users are increasingly trying to phase out ‘balance’, in favor of integration, or even ‘harmony.’

The Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices (TAFEP) in Singapore defines work-life ‘harmony’ as: “A state in which an individual is able to achieve both personal and professional goals in a combination that is uniquely satisfactory.”

Snippet: It’s been about forty years since the term work-life balance was first used. Since then, it has been used broadly to refer to everything from the need for more leisure or family time to self-care.

Critics of the term say that it creates an artificial separation between work and life, as if work were not a part of life. Some others say it incorrectly, that it implies a zero-sum equation. One in which life loses out while you’re working, and vice versa.

Recommended: Work-life Balance Or Integration – What’s The Difference?

The concept of work-life integration continue to be popular in recent years. But what, exactly, does it mean, and is it a helpful framework to aspire to? Which one is for you, work-life balance or integration?

Why work-life integration is not a perfect solution

With work-life integration you could end up integrating work into every area of your life without integrating much of life into your workday. Or you may find yourself constantly thinking about work even when you want to pay attention to other priorities.

Worklife Balance Or Integration – What’s The Difference?

Snippet: Most people have heard the term “work-life balance.” But the phrase “work-life integration” has been gaining popularity. This comes up sometimes when people don’t want the ‘measurement pressure’, that seems to come with a ‘balance’.

This has given way to headlines such as “work-life balance is dead” and “work-life integration: the new norm.” Despite the growing popularity of work-life integration, is there really a difference between it and work-life balance?

According to Merriam-Webster.com the word “integrate” is defined as “to form, coordinate, or blend into a functioning or unified whole.” Thereby concluding that work-life integration focuses on incorporating the different area’s of one’s life to create a whole picture.

Balance, on the other hand, has almost twice as many definitions on Merriam-Webster including, “stability produced by even distribution of weight on each side of the vertical axis.” The Oxford Dictionary defines “balance” as “an even distribution of weight enabling someone or something to remain upright and steady.”

Many people tend to focus on “the even distribution” part of the balance definition when discussing work-life balance.

In fact, Berkeley Haas School Of Business notes the traditional image of a scale, an image often associated with work-life balance, “creates a sense of competition between the two elements.” Implying that the two worlds must exist on either side of the “vertical axis,” also known as the individual in this case.
